Sidcot School Senior Swimming Gala

On a bright Friday afternoon, a large selection of Senior School students arrived at the Sports Centre, ready to represent their houses and showcase their own swimming talents. After an eventful start, the lead was shared at the halfway stage by East and South. The early events displayed a range of different skills, from woggle races to butterfly. The Individual medley was taken by 4 outstanding performances, showing great speed and stamina across all four strokes; these went to: Stella Arnold (junior girl), Owain Edwards (junior boy), Jessica Brown (inter girl) and Michael Hooper (inter boy). With all to play for in the last race, the eventual overall winners were East house, who pipped South by 7 points.
