Congratulations to the APS students who took part in this year’s Haringey Swimming gala. The Y9 boys team showed some strong individual performances from Gil who won his butterfly heat along with the 4x medley race. Sameer also showed perseverance in his breaststroke event finishing a very respectful 2nd position. Fred and Daniel contributed excellently to the 4x freestyle relay along with the 4x medley relay. Overall the Y9 boys team finished a strong 3rd place. The Y9 girls team had an outstanding performance from Rowan, who had strong competition from another club swimmer, but saw her off easily in the Individual Medley, Freestyle and 4x Freestyle relay. Bea also was consistent in her backstroke event, showing lovely technique and confidence. Overall the Y9 girls swim team finished 2nd place. Both Y10 teams once again came out strong. They had a lot to live up to after finishing first place for 2 years running. Arun swam superbly throughout, winning every one of his race. Jack and Louie also put in strong performances, despite a few goggle issues. Sadly, the forth team member could not make the gala which mean the boys team finished an amazing 2nd position. The Y10 girls team were solid throughout from all girls- Lexie, Tamara, Isabelle & Edie. Despite a few nerves, the girls came through on top and finished 1st position. Well done to all students who took part.
