Grand Final Swimming Gala

The Grand Final Swimming Gala was held at the Hydro on Tuesday, 18th October. As Brackenfield won their Tolly Richardson Satellite Gala, they progressed to the Grand Final along with 15 other schools from the Knaresborough, Harrogate, Ripon, Starbeck and Nidderdale Districts, who had also been placed in the top 3 (approx. 70 schools).

The standard of the swimming this year was exceptional and there were some extremely exciting races throughout the event. Brackenfield fought hard in each race and ended the gala a very credible second place behind Hampsthwaite.

The results were: 1st Hampsthwaite 171 points, 2nd Brackenfield 155 points, 3rd Aspin Park 147 points and 4th Glasshouses 141 points. This was an excellent team effort and every swimmer played their part, bringing their ‘A’ game and earning valuable points to the overall result, well done.
