#TeamReigate swimmers dominate at the Surrey Schools Individual Championships

 

On Saturday January 18, Reigate Grammar School’s girls and boys took to the pool in the Surrey Schools Individual Championships, held at Guildford Spectrum. The competition – one of the biggest calendar meets of the year – is open to all Surrey schools.

There were considerable individual and team successes across the board, with both senior girls’ and senior boys’ teams crowned overall champions.

#TeamReigate’s senior girls were superb and became the overall senior girls winners. Reigate Grammar School senior girls came first in the backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly, second in the freestyle and Head Girl Amy B pulled in a superb performance to come fifth in the tough 200m individual medley, earning valuable points towards the team’s total.

This follows the girls’ success in reaching the National Relay Finals in November 2019.

The senior boys were also victorious, earning the title of senior champions. Reigatians came in first in the 100m backstroke, second in the 200m individual medley, and third in the 100m butterfly. The intermediate boys’ 100m breaststroke was also won by a member of #TeamReigate.

Claire Cline, Head of Swimming, said “I am immensely proud of our students, who were a credit to #TeamReigate in the pool. There were some gutsy swims and the boys and girls showed themselves to be great sports, cheering at the end of the lane for each and every swimmer. It is a reflection of the team spirit and commitment of the students that we continue to have such successful teams at senior level. We are now looking forward to the Independent Schools Bath Cup at the Olympic Park in London in March.”
