Godstowe swimmers crowned National Champions
Godstowe’s U11 swimming team won the Freestyle Relay at the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS) National Swimming Finals on Saturday 7th May, crowning them National Champions.
The team comprising Alice Crowston, Ellie Martin, Alice Butler and Jasmine van Rest knocked three seconds of their qualifying time at the event held at K2 Crawley in Surrey. The team also knocked five seconds off their Medley Relay time placing them sixth in the country in that race.
More than 4,000 swimmers from 400 schools entered 30 qualifying round galas in February, with more than 2,400 swimmers from 388 schools qualifying for the finals. This was an exceptionally large event and the competition was of very high standard. Godstowe is extremely proud of the results our girls achieved.
