Last week Moira House Girls School headed to the K2 Sports Arena in Crawley to take part in this year’s ESSA Secondary Schools Relay Championships.

The A team for the juniors comprised of Jessica Brialey, Tahlia Winn, Chloe  Hughes and Liliana Winn and came a deserved third place. They were knocked out of the silver medal position by 0.2 of a second and all gained personal best times for their efforts.

Millie Garner, Emily Davison, Abbie Ring and Lizzie Garner, who were in the junior B team, attained a respectable 15th place against some very stiff competition, and again gained two personal bests for each swimmer.

In the intermediate team, Alice Greenland, Nadia Winn, Flora Alessandroni and Chloe Pollard stormed through in their heat and achieved an impressive second place, and achieved a silver medal against the team who won the national events last year. Nadia knocked over a second off her personal best.

Yet again the intermediate team excelled themselves in their 4 x 50m Medley Relay band gained a silver medal with Nadia, Chloe and Flora all achieving personal bests. The B team swam into 10th .
