The Under 11 swimming team made their way to Margate on Saturday 14 March to compete in the Kent Schools’ Swimming Championships. This competition is open to any school in the county with pupils aged under 11.

Races were held in both individual races over 50 metres as well as a 4 x 25m medley and frontcrawl relay.

The New Beacon team’s results are as follows:

Robert K: 50 metres frontcrawl – 3rd
Thomas H: 50 metres butterfly – 10th
Charlie W: 50 metres breaststroke – 12th
Ignacio M: 50 metres backstroke – 12th

4 x 25 metres frontcrawl relay – 1st
4 x 25 metres medley relay – 2nd

The relay results have qualified the boys to swim in the English Schools South-East Regional Championships which will be taking place in May. All the team performed magnificently to produce these great results and the boys very much look forward to swimming in the south-east regionals in May.
