SMH wins major swimming gala!

The U9, U10 and U11 swimming team travelled to Preston on Monday 26th January to compete in the annual St Pius Inter-schools competition.  This is the fifth year the gala has been held but the first time SMH have entered a team.

There were some strong individual performances on the day but SMH swimmers picked up most of their points in the relays.  The U10s won both the Medley and Freestyle events, with Jim C and Daniel H swimming in the next age group up.  The U11 relay team swam hard against strong opposition, finishing 1st and 2nd.  Congratulations also go to those pupils who competed in their first swimming gala away from Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall.

The final results were:

1st    SMH              96pts

2nd  Hunter Hall   90pts

3rd   Kirkham        85pts

4th   St Pius           77pts

5th   Highfield       72pts

6th   Rossall           63pts
