Wood Green Student's swimming success

Congratulations to Eleanor Perks, Year 9, who is proving to be a bit of a swimming sensation. After competing in the English National Swimming Competition in July Eleanor was selected to attend a 3 day training camp as part of the National Talent Pathway which she has now attended. 

At the beginning of February she competed in the North Bucks County Championships and had the following results:

2nd in the Girls 14 and under 50m Breast stroke,

2nd in the Girls 14 and under 100m Breast stroke,

2nd in the Girls 14 and under 200m Breast stroke,

3rd in the Girls 14 and Under 200m Individual Medley,

and 4th in the Girls 14 and Under 50m Front Crawl.

Eleanor also qualified for the Grand Final for the 200m Girls Breast stroke. This race was between the fastest 8 female swimmers across all age groups. Eleanor finished 5th overall.

Eleanor has now gained qualifying times to compete in the South East Regional Competition in May. 

Well done Eleanor.. Fantastic results and good luck at the competition in May from all of us.
