For the second gala of the term, the Senior Team travelled to Brambletye hoping for another win following the success at Hurstpierpoint last week. This time we fielded both ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams, giving more swimmers the opportunity to represent the school and for a couple of swimmers it was their first ever gala.

The programme included Individual Medley races and we started well winning two of the three age groups. Success continued across all four strokes and at the end of the individual races both ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams were leading. The relays were hard fought and by the end of the gala the win was by no means assured. Tension was high as the results were announced Brambletye B – 52 and Copthorne B -59, Brambletye A – 85 and Copthorne A – 88.

A superb performance across all age groups. Well done both Teams and thanks to Brambletye for their hospitality.
