On Thursday 17 January, swimmers in Year 9 to Year 13 swam in a very competitive gala against Cheltenham College.
The gala took place at Monmouth School for Girls, and both boys and girls took part. For the boys’ team, Ben (team captain) started the racing with an excellent Individual Medley race, finishing in second place. The 4x50m Freestyle race demonstrated some fantastic swimming from Ethan, Ben R, Bosco and Skye and the 4x50m Medley Relay saw a win for Iwan, Robbie, Jack and Ben. Iwan also secured a win in the 50m Freestyle and Robbie in the 50m Breaststroke. James, Barney and Dylan swam extremely well in the face of tough competition.
Overall, it was a closely fought competition with the final score: Monmouth 69 points and Cheltenham College 59 points.
