Well done Poppy & Grace!

Grace Breeze-Collins (D1+) and Poppy Garnett (D2) competed in a gala with their school, Juniper Hill School.  Overall, the team finished in 1st place and are going through to the County Finals.

Poppy was nominated by their PE teacher as the “Swimmer of the Day" and Captain for the school swim team and Grace was nominated as Vice-Captain.  Poppy swam 25m backstroke and finished in 1st place and Grace swam 25m front crawl also finishing in 1st place.  The girls also took part in two relay events – Freestyle and Medley – with two other girls and the team finished first in both races.

Final words from Poppy and Grace:

We thoroughly enjoyed the gala.  It was an amazing experience and we’re looking forward to the County Finals!
