Report by Hannah (Y6)
On the 6th April 2017, Escrick swimming team went to Queen Margaret's school to take part in a swimming gala ran by Sporting Start. The team consisted of: Ollie F, Jake P, Jamie K, Will H, Hannah M, Hannah G, Lucy B and Zara L. Luke was also part of the team, however, he suffered an unfortunate injury before so was unable to participate.
The team did really well, coming home with quite a few medals (3 gold, 7 silver and 6 bronze). I would like to thank the team for giving 100%, Mrs Palmer for taking us and Mr. Deakin for organising the team. Also, thank you to Sporting Start for organising and Queen Margaret's for letting us use the pool.
