Swimming Talent

A team of four Key Stage 2 pupils represented the school at the 21st Yorkshire Primary Schools’ Team Relay Swimming Championship, held at the John Smiths Stadium in Huddersfield, on Saturday 22nd March.

Although pitted against stiff competition from over 30 primary schools from across the county, and with many opponents experienced club swimmers, the talented Lady Royd Swimming Team held their own.

Team members; Natasha Hutchinson, Laiba Hussain,  Aisha Matib and Aaisha Bashir, all swam exceptionally well to reach the finals in their heat of both the mixed stroke relay and the freestyle relay.

Team swimming coach, Mrs Grant said: ‘The girls put in a tremendous team performance and only narrowly missed out on the medals. Certainly they should be very proud of their achievement’.
