ESSA Berkshire Qualifying Round report
On Monday 27th September Mr Clark took eight swimmers to St George’s school in Ascot to take part in the English School Swimming Association Berkshire qualifying round. Two teams were entered, one into the intermediate division and one into the senior division. Both teams took part in two events, the 4×50 freestyle relay and the 4×50 medley relay.
The senior team, Aaron Wilks, Jonah McIntyre, Toby Davies and Tomasz Peczak, raced in both relays and won both events with very fast swims from the whole team, beating the large numbers of private schools that they were competing against.
The intermediate team, Gabriel McIntyre, Loukas Philippidis, Arthur Kohlen Gerard and Alex Adam, had a great freestyle and medley swim with the whole team putting in great times but unfortunately, they just missed out on getting a medal in both events, but hopefully they can come back next year even stronger.
