JH Swimmers Finish 1st

Eight swimmers from Jack Hunt School attended the Cambridgeshire Schools Swimming Gala which took place on 11 October.  In order to compete in the Gala, students were required to gain a qualification time for each event. This meant the standard of swimming was extremely high with almost all of the other swimmers belonging to a club.

Not only were students competing for the chance to represent Cambridgeshire in the next round, but also to try and win the trophy for best School.  Jack Hunt students did extremely well with a number of swimmers achieving personal bests.

Due to injury, James Newton was unable to swim but still attended and acted as Team Manager for the evening, he worked hard recording times and splits for each member of the team and gave feedback on where they lost time during the race.

Overall the team finished in 1st place beating 20 other schools and winning by an amazing 10 points ahead of second place. Well done to all students involved:
