The team of Freya Blundell, Jemima Chappell, Grace Crowe and Elizabeth Dawson competed at the DSSA Dorset School Games County Final at Dorchester sports centre yesterday. The girls were quite nervous as it was a very big event to compete in, with teams from all across Dorset. The girls were selected to form part of the Poole squad.
The girls swam in the last race of the day, competing in the 4x25m freestyle relay against seven other teams.
Elizabeth swam the first leg, getting a great start and by the time she touched the wall to pass onto Grace Yarrells had a two metre lead. Grace then swam a strong second leg and edged the team out further from the competition, giving Jemima some breathing space to push on which she duly did. She then touched the wall to release Freya who finished ahead of all the other teams, so the girls were crowned 4x25m Freestyle county champions!
The girls were also swimming as part of the Poole team who were also crowned overall winners and Dorset champions!
Well done to you all for your incredible effort during training and your commitment during lessons this school year. Thank you to the wonderful parents who bring them to training and enable this to be possible.
