For the second consecutive year, The Blue Coat School are National Swimming Champions!

On Saturday 16th June Skye H, Poppy C, Neave R, Maya H, Storm H, Alex B, Alex F, Shayan P and Kieran O’R travelled to Ponds Forge, Sheffield to compete in the English Schools Primary School National Championships. With both U11 teams qualifying for both the Medley and Freestyle relay, Blue Coat were well represented at the meet.

The U11 boys team qualified for both the Medley and Freestyle relay B Final, finishing 7th in the Medley and 3rd in the Freestyle. The boys were fantastic, recording new season personal bests and holding their own against the country’s finest!

The U11 girls qualified for the Medley and Freestyle A Final, finishing 6th in the Medley relay and recording a new season’s best time. Having qualified as 2nd fastest for the Freestyle A Final the girls really did pull it out of the bag in the final. The girls swam incredibly, producing a perfect race and finishing first! Our U11 Girls Freestyle relay team are National Champions!

All nine swimmers were a credit to the school and did themselves proud. As ever, thank you to the parents for their continued support.

Well done, Team BCS Swimming!

Mr Kelly
