Oakhill entered the Ribble Valley schools swimming gala on Monday, competing against nine other schools. Although we only had a small pool to choose from our team did fantastically well! We had a team made up of four girls and four boys. Mae, Jess, Gee, Jack, Cody, Will and Zach from Year six and Lottie from Year Five. Our both our boys and girls performed well in all of their events. With Jess, will, Jack and mae winning medals in their individual events. But special mention must go to our boys relay team who dominated their heat by half a length working with great teamwork, coordination and determination. Their super time got them the silver medals across the two heats. Once all the results were in the final results were:
Girls team narrowly missed out on medals coming 4th out of ten schools
Boy team came 3rd and won bronze
Overall, Oakhill achieved 3rd place out of ten.
An amazing achievement as many of the school teams were made up of club swimmers. The team were rewarded with an ice cream from Mrs Smith for their fantastic effort, grit and determination.
