On Friday evening the 14th October we took a squad of five swimmers to the National Swimming Championships – Yorkshire Division in Huddersfield. This competition is well known for the high standard of swimming and high number of private school entered. We entered in the under 14 category and took Alice Aucott, Megan Hobson, Becky Britten, Lucy Winch and Katie Morritt to represent Wickersley.
The girls were entered in the freestyle relay and the medley relay of which they came 3rd in the medley relay and 6th in the freestyle relay out of 17 schools entered. We were really impressed with the girls performance, Becky Britten gave the girls a fantastic lead with her superb backstroke which was nothing short of amazing and Alice Aucott demonstrated a very strong butterfly leg to keep us in with a chance. We will wait to hear whether we have qualified for the next round which will be held in Southampton.
