Following their success at the Regional finals in October, swimming teams from DCGS and DCHS represented the South East on Saturday 26th November at the 54th Team Championships held in ‘The Quays’ Southampton, a world class sports venue.
Our senior team of Marcus Hazelwood, Toby Emerson, Will Hammond and Dan Barraclough did well to finish 6th in their semi-final of the Medley Relay, narrowly failing to make the final. The Intermediate team of Ben Levart, Charlie Messenger, Max Elphick and Max Poplawski finished in 4th place in the Medley Relay final, and ended with a superb swim in the Freestyle final to snatch a well-deserved podium finish and a Bronze medal in a time of 1.42.51.
The teams from the High School also had a successful championship bringing home a bronze medal in the freestyle. Both teams should be proud of their efforts.
