The Northfields Inter House Swimming Gala was held at the school pool, with over 100 students participating in the event. Dolphins came in with a slight lead over Eagles and Phoenix after the heat stages, however there were very few points in it. There was some great competition in all categories with new students Aurelie Tang Yan and Noah Gruter excelling for Eagles and Dolphins in the younger groups.

The minim category saw some very close races between Camille Desvaux (Dolphins), Kimberley Redman (Phoenix) and Nadia Mahomedkhan (Eagles) for the girls, and Joshua Gibson (Dolphins), Boris Desvaux (Phoenix) and Liam Beechouk (Eagles) for the boys.

Hugo Labat (Phoenix) dominated the boys Cadet category, and broke his own 100m freestyle time, completing it in just over 58 seconds. Alex Maingard (Eagles) was determined to win one race over Hugo, however it wasn’t to be!

There were very few participants in the Junior categories and their most exciting races came at the end with the relays. For the first time the juniors entered mixed relay teams for both the Freestyle and Medley events, and we saw some close finishes. The best of them was the 4x25m Freestyle relay with Tanguy Dailland (Phoenix) trailing 12m in the final length, powered through the water like a man possessed to catch Elorie De Ricquebourg (Dolphins), and win 1st place by a fraction of a section, soaking everyone around the pool area with his wild unorthodox freestyle!

The scores were pretty close throughout the day, however once again the relays made a big difference. Just one point separated 2nd and 3rd, as Phoenix slipped into 2nd place with 414 pts over Eagles (413 pts). Dolphins lived up to their name and maintained the final bragging rights by winning with a final total of 542 points.
