Whitgift National Swimming Success
Whitgift national swimming success at the ESSA National Schools Relay Finals in Southampton
Date published: Tue 6 Dec 2011
A total of five Whitgift swimming teams qualified and took part in the ESSA National Schools Relay Finals in Southampton on the 26th November. Tough divisional qualifiers meant that the five teams were already ranked in the top 16 for each of their races.
The U16 Medley Relay team - Kunmi Ogunfeibo, Henry Choong, Rhys Warner, Marlon Gasparotto and Fred Biggs – had reason to celebrate winning Bronze as well as smashing the School record by 6 seconds. Not content with this achievement they also broke the Freestyle Relay record but unfortunately narrowly missed a podium finish.
Overall Whitgift results:
U14 Medley Team: 10th U14 Freestyle Team: 8th
U16 Medley Team: 3rd U16 Freestyle Team: 4th
U18 Freestyle Team: 9th
