Abberley host Hereford in Swimming Gala
Hereford made it through Storm Brendan to get to Abberley for the swimming gala.
U10, U11, U12 and U13 children all ready and excited for what would prove to be a very close competition. Both teams had some age groups without swimmers so children swam up age groups and some swam two lengths straight off in a relay!
All our children gave so much, with three of the girls swimming so many races to fill gaps in the team that I am sure they would have slept very well!
At the halfway point only two points separated the teams, with Hereford having the advantage. Up came the relays and Abberley always pull out the best swims in relays, which proved to be the decider. A win by eight points was a very close ending.
Excellent gala and once again a proud performance from the team.
Well done Swim team!
