Swimmers scoop a medley of medals at County meet

We sent a strong contingent to the Shropshire County Secondary Schools Swimming Gala held at Thomas Telford School. This gala is an elite competition with stringent qualifying times in place and some of the fastest swimmers in the County. Oswestry School’s team returned home with an array of medals and personal best times.

In the intermediate class 3rd Form pupil Dan Counter swam 100m butterfly and took home not only a 3 second personal best, but a silver medal too. 5th Form pupil Alistair Moss swam in both 100m backstroke and 100m freestyle winning yet another silver medal for the team.

At senior level Michael Doyle dominated the 100m breaststroke race pocketing a gold medal and a time of 1:12:52. In the 200m individual medley Michael finished with a 3 second personal best time and a silver medal losing out on the gold by less than a second.

Joseph Law claimed bronze in the 100m freestyle race and a 4 second personal best.

Swim coach, Bernadette Tudhope, commented, “These boys gave their best in the pool and represented Oswestry School admirably in their achievements, sportsmanship and conduct.”
