Haberdashers’ Monmouth Prep shines at The Downs Malvern Aquathon

May 20, 2024

On Saturday, 18th May, two teams of pupils from Haberdashers’ Monmouth Prep School participated in the annual ‘The Downs Malvern Aquathon’ at Malvern College.

The event featured a challenging combination of a 4-length swim, followed by a quick transition to an 800m run.

Our pupils delivered outstanding performances in their heats. Year 5 pupil Caroline M achieved an impressive 2nd place overall in the girls’ category, and Samuel W, also in Year 5, triumphed in the U11 boys’ category, securing 1st place.

Thanks to the combined efforts of our talented athletes, both the boys’ and girls’ teams earned 2nd place in their respective team categories.

In a nail-biting finish for the overall standings, our teams missed the top spot by just one point, concluding the event with an excellent 2nd place overall. It was a fabulous day marked by stellar performances and spirited competition. We eagerly look forward to next year’s event.

Individual Heat Results:
Caroline M: 1st
Ottilie H: 1st
Nesta D: 3rd
Seren B: 3rd
Henry A: 5th
Arthur A: 3rd
Brinley M: 3rd

Congratulations to all our pupils for their dedication and hard work!
