National Swimming Success
RGS Swimmers travelled to the Olympic Park in Stratford to compete in the English National Swimming Relays. The event involves the top 30 schools in England in each category. RGS first qualified in 2014, achieving a place in two of the twelve events. Last year they secured one spot, but this year has been the most successful yet. RGS qualified for 5 of the 12 events with the Junior Girls, Junior Boys & Intermediate Boys achieving a much sought after top 30 placing. All the swimmers swam well with placings ranging from 27th to 13th in England. Our most successful team being our Junior Boys Medley Relay.
The success in this year’s English Nationals reflects the growing strength of swimming at RGS. With over 270 schools entering some events, RGS are very proud to be joint top in the South East for the number of qualifications by a co-educational school. A tremendous achievement and testament to the swimmers determination and hard-work.
