On Monday 7th November our Year 3-6 swim squads competed in the first round qualifier of the London Independent Schools Swimming Championships. As the boys’ first competition of the year, and having had only a few weeks of training, it could have been a nervous start.
However, the boys channelled this energy and came out of the starting blocks flying; picking up top 3 finishes in almost every individual event.
The boys then showed their real class in the team relays by finishing in first place in 8 of the 15 races. The boys ended the gala at their best by winning the squadron relay by ¾ of a length. Congratulations must go to all the boys involved for their hard work in training and their resilience under pressure on the night.
The points score shows a resounding win for Dulwich Prep London.
