Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Mixed-U12A vs  Claremont Preparatory School
On: Tuesday, 25 Sep 2018
Venue: Away

On Tuesday 25th September, our senior swimmers travelled to Claremont for another friendly gala. Many of our swimmers were required to swim 'up' an age group and it was quite a sight to see U11s Edward M and Nicholas L joining Humphrey B and our captain William H in the U13 relays. Many of the heats were over two lengths and, again, turns and starts were identified as areas to develop. We also had many keen girls swimming against boys, particularly for the U12s. Standout performances included wins for Lottie H in the U11 girls' breaststroke and the U11 girls' freestyle, Wilby W' in the U11 boys' breaststroke, Eleanor S in the U12 boys' breaststroke and Edward M in the U11 boys' butterfly and U11 boys freestyle. Our U11s were most successful in the relays, with the team of Darcey G, Rachel B, Hannah C and Lottie H winning both their medley and front crawl relays. The U11 boys included Matthew GR, Bruno H, Rory B, Wilby W, Edward M and Nicholas L, and together they won the U11 boys medley and freestyle relays. Although we dominated the U11 age group, we had less strength in depth through the older years, and the final result was Saint Ronan’s 183 and Claremont 226.
