Mr Shorrock is compiling a list of swimmers willing to represent the school in swimming competitions. Four girls have recently represented Brooke Weston at a local event, which was the first time that a team has been entered in the discipline.
Lorna Attwood, Jessica Bellew, Holly Saunders and Courtney Wilson swam at the English School Swimming Association's competition at Daventry. They competed in the team 50m freestyle and medley events, in which they secured 11th and 12th positions respectively out of a total of 20 teams.
Holly and Jessica.
Local coach, Keith Attwood who accompanied them said: ' Considering that the girls had never actually swum together before and this was the first time any of them had experienced this type of competition I think they did remarkably well. All the girls swam very well and behaved impeccably.'
Now Mr Shorrock and Mr Attwood, who is assistant swimming coach at Kettering Amateur Swimming Club, hope that other students will sign up to represent Brooke Weston in the future. If any students swim at clubs outside school and would like to be considered for a school team they can email their details to Mr Shorrock.
