A big well done to four of our swimmers who took part in the national school’s swimming championships at the Olympic pool in London earlier today.
Chester-le-Street’s James Davison, Ben Ward, Emily Doleman and Ella Hall were all selected to represent Park View’s Year 7/8 Boys’ & girls’ teams, in the national final held at the London Aquatics Centre.
With over 200 teams entered overall, Park View’s boys team delivered a fantastic performance in the medley team heats to qualify for the final; finishing in pole position out of the North East schools and an impressive 9th position overall, also taking 14th place in the Freestyle team.
The girls team likewise produced an impressive result, finishing in 23rd place overall.
I’m sure it was a fantastic experience for our young swimmers and a huge well done to all those who took part!
