Swimming Success!

Elliot has had massive success in his swimming this week. Mr Incles and Elliot has kindly sent us a swimming report:

North Shropshire West were competing against North Shropshire East, Telford, Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury – there are some great swimmers in here, so it was a competitive night.  NSW apparently usually come bottom, but collectively (all boys, girls races combined), managed a fantastic third place.  Nic was delighted.
There were individual races in backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle as well as freestyle relays and medley relays – 24 events in total.  Poolside was the usual hot, humid noisy chaos.
Elliot swam really well on the night.  He came third in his individual fly heat and qualified for the final.  In the final he had a great start but very narrowly missed out on the medals to finish fourth.
He swam the fly leg of the medley and he and the rest of the boys swam really well to get into the final.  In the final they went for it and Elliot swam the fly leg again and blitzed it, getting out the pool and lying down for a couple of mins he was so tired.  They placed third and Elliot picked up a medal for his efforts, which made his day/week/month!
Elliot – you are a superstar! Keep up the great effort.


Congratulations to our Athletics team who took part in the Area Athletics event at Bomere Heath. We had lots of certificates too…!
