National swimming success!

30 November 2018

On Saturday 17 November, a team of four swimmers travelled down to the London Aquatics Centre, the home of London 2012 Olympic swimming, to compete in the Secondary Schools Team Relay Championships. 

This event, organised by the English Schools Swimming Association, is extremely difficult to qualify for at Secondary School level; in fact, the last time EHS qualified was over 15 years ago! 

EHS were swimming in Heat 2 against strong competition from school such as Repton, Torquay Grammar and St Teresa. The girls swam fantastically, achieving a time of 2:04.52 which was nearly three seconds faster than their qualification time. This meant that although the team qualified in 28th place, their performance on the day moved them up to 17th. 

To be one of the top 20 schools nationally is an incredible achievement and one which will be remembered in EHS’ swimming history! Congratulations goes to Daisy Bevan, Poppy Couzens, Jemima Jackson and Carys Hayes.
