On Tuesday 19th November we welcomed both Bromsgrove and Warwick for our much anticipated swimming gala. In the past we have enjoyed a rich history of not only swimming against one another, but also swimming together when representing the West Midlands at National events. For the last three years we have all been ranked in the Top 3 within the West Midlands.
It was always going to be an exciting gala, but this was a step up from our usual ties. We had close races throughout the evening, with a lot of the races going down to who had the quicker finish! The Blue Coat boys were dominant throughout the evening, only dropping 3 points, collecting a total of 36 points out of a possible 39. Special mentions to Harry Forty, Samuel Tan, Milo Dowling and Freddie Trevis on winning their individual events.
At the end of the event the points we counted and checked, with the gala finishing:
Joint 1st: Blue Coat and Bromsgrove 52
3rd: Warwick 40
What a fantastic result for Blue Coat Swimming and well done to both Bromsgrove and Warwick.
