Around 12 schools took part in this competition. The children swam 50 metres and then a short time later ran 800 metres. Sam K came first in his swimming race. Sam F was third in his race.
Kate and Harry both won their running races.
A good effort from Zaynab as well, in both swimming and running.
Performances in the 2 events are combined to find the winners in the different age categories. We are still waiting for the final results.
All five children then went on to take part in the cross country at Lammack on the same day. Well done!
