Swimming GalaPosted on: 29/01/2019
The annual Castle Point and Rochford Swimming Gala was hosted by Garons Park with KES finishing fifth overall. Given that other schools had club and county swimmers in their squads, this was a good performance.
Year 9 boys finished an excellent second overall. Freddie came first in his backstroke event, Alex was second in the freestyle competition with Alfie also second at breaststroke. The relay team came in third.
Year 8 student, Jacob, gave an excellent performance in his freestyle event to finish in second place.
Outstanding performances in the girls team included Evie from Year 7 who finished third in the breaststroke event, Year 9 Liv, also third in the butterfly event and Isabelle, third in the Year 9 backstroke competition. Robyn swam a very tight breaststroke race, coming in second for Year 8 and Mollie swam up a year group, from Year 8 to the Year 9 team.
Both the boys and girls teams included Years 7,8, 9 and seniors, all producing their best and a credit to the school.
