Pupils from a North Yorkshire School are set to make a splash at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park later this month.
Youngsters from Cundall Manor School will compete at the ISA’s National Swimming Finals in the London Aquatics Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Saturday 21 January.
FIVE pupils from the school, based between Ripon and Thirsk, will compete for the prestigious national prize across three races.
Swimming Captain, George Sanderson, will compete in the 50 meters breaststroke and as part of a medley team made up of other members from ISA North schools.
Year 7 girls, Millie Baker, Lauren Gaunt-Edwards, Minnie Pollock and Pippa Bentley, will compete in the 4 x 50 meters Freestyle relay award, after winning both the Freestyle and Medley relay events at the ISA North qualifying event in late 2016.
Swim squad coach, Jo Pollock, said: “The team have been fantastic this year. We have seen some wonderful results and a great amount of effort put in to both their training and their competitions this year.”
She added: “The competition is due recognition of how hard they have worked but it is also great opportunity for our pupils to go down to the Olympic Park and be inspired by the London 2012 legacy.”
The event will be the second time this academic year that some of the squad have been to a national final at the Olympic park, with members of the Girls’ relay team having recently claimed the ISA Under 13 National Junior Hockey Champions Trophy.
