Abberley Host The Elms in Swimming Gala
For the final gala at home of the season, Abberley hosted The Elms.
We got off to a good start with wins in the backstroke. The Elms has some good swimmers who pushed us to second place on a few of the breastroke races and we had to swim out of our skins on some of the butterfly races. Last minute call ups for some children to fill in when others went sick proved to be good choices as we pulled away with a good lead.
The work we have done on skills, fine technique tuning and starts showed and the children's starts and strokes looked good.
This was the last ever gala for our Top Year children and they went out with a bang, with the help of a couple of the younger swimmers who swam up age groups.
Relays were exciting as ever and the noise from all of the parents and all the swimmers nearly took the roof off!
Excellent end to the season for the senior squad. Well done to all of you, you should be as proud as I am of your performances and hard work all term. Undefeated for two years shows how hard they have all worked!
