Schools make a Splash at Swimming Finals!

We spent two mornings at the pool for the U11, U12, U14 & U16 North Oxfordshire Swimming Finals, held at Spiceball Leisure Centre. The atmosphere was fantastic, particularly at the U11 & U12 event, with the Year 7 swimmers cheering and encouraging their Primary counterparts and vice versa.

The exciting and entertaining competitions were well supported by Young Leaders from The Cooper School who organised swimmers, collated results and had a very tough job on the finish line with some extremely close races.

The teams in the U11 (Year 5 & 6) boys and girls competitions had all qualified for the Final by winning their respective area competitions in the weeks prior, whilst many of the U12 (Y7) swimmers were representing their Secondary School for the first time.  In some cases those in the older age groups found themselves competing against their usual club team mates.

Teams took to the water to compete in 6 events over 25m or 50m - Individual Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly, followed by Freestyle and Medley Relays, displaying amazing ability and technique throughout.

Congratulations to the following teams who have now qualified for the Level 3 Oxfordshire School Games Final in April & July:

U11 Girls: Edward Feild & Sibford School

U11 Boys: Sibford School & Chesterton

U12 Girls: Gosford Hill & Blessed George Napier

U12 Boys: Blessed George Napier & The Cooper School

U14 Girls: Sibford School, Blessed George Napier & The Cooper School

U14 Boys: The Cooper School & Blessed George Napier

U16 Girls: Gosford Hill School & The Cooper School

U16 Boys: The Cooper, Sibford School & The Warriner School

Cumulative scores from across all Secondary Competitions were recorded, and for an impressive 5th year in a row The Cooper School have retained their crown as North Oxfordshire School Sport Partnership Secondary Swimming Champions with 220 points. In 2nd place were Sibford School (197 points) and in 3rd The Warriner School (146 points).
