It was another successful day for the St Hugh's swim team on Monday, finishing 3rd overall at Grantham Prep Gala.  

This event is always very much enjoyed by our pupils, despite the cold water and tough competition!  Schools competing included Laxton (Winners), Grantham Prep (2nd), Stamford JS, The Peterborough School, Wellow House and St George's Prep. 

It was a real team effort and we had some outstanding performances in the individual events with 8/9 achieving 1st,2nd or 3rd place (see below). 

Helena Field - 1st U9 backstroke & 2nd U9 breaststroke
Beth Church- 3rd U9 Freestyle 
Harry Milne - 2nd U10 Breaststroke & backstroke & 1st U10 freestyle
Charlie Hargreaves - 3rd U11 backstroke 
George Pocklington - 2nd U11 breaststroke 

Our performance in the relays was also very pleasing and all competitors showed great fighting spirit (especially in the last extra 8 metres of the 25m pool!). Well done to all involved, a great result, finishing just two points below Grantham in 2nd place!
