Today our swimming squads put in some tremendous performances at the Manchester Aquatics Centre against the best of the rest of the City of Manchester. There were two finals running side by side, the A final and the B final. Due to our teams winning gold in the area heats, both our squads were competing in the A finals.
Our girls showed tremendous tenacity in all their races and were rewarded for their efforts with the bronze medal position. There were some real stand out performances on the day.
Our boys were pushed the whole way, ending up tied in first place on equal points. The decider was the number of first places in races and St John’s had 4 out of 6. The nail biting finish in both the relays clinched the deal and our boys were crowned Manchester Champions. They will now go through to represent Manchester in the Level 3 Winter School Games on Tuesday 20th March.
Congratulations to all our swimmers!
