Sussex County Relay report

On Sunday 27th January six East Grinstead teams competed at the Sussex County Relays held in Horsham….


Boys 12/13: Alexander, Oscar, Arran and Robert.

 Girls 12/13 Ellie, Mia, Arabella, Freya, Chloe, Lilly, Gabi and Milla.

Girls 16U: Abigail, Arabella, Ella, Hannah, Mya, Nicole, Sophie and Tricia.

Boys Open: Barney, Ed, Joseph M, Joseph O and Oli.


The 12/13 and the 16U teams both swam a 4×50 medley relay and a 4x 50 freestyle relay in the heats. The boy’s open team swam a 4×100 medley relay and 4×100 freestyle relay.

Every single member of the team swam their hearts out and achieved PBs. The camaraderie was high and our small team more than competed with the larger clubs, cheering loudly at the end of our lanes whilst our teams were swimming.

Our Open boys’ team made the finals, finishing 7th in the freestyle and 8th in the medley. Our 12/13 boys also made both finals finishing 4th in the free but with an unfortunate DQ in the medley.
Our 12/13 Girls A team (Gabi, Arabella, Chloe and Milla) made the finals too, securing a bronze medal in the freestyle and finishing 5th in the medley. Our girls 12/13 B team (Ellie, Freya, Lilly and Mia) narrowly missed the finals finishing 9th in the medley and 10th in the freestyle.

Our 16U girls A and B teams finished 13th and 15th, respectively, in the medley and 9th and 15th, respectively in the freestyle.

Well done to everyone who took part and good luck to everyone competing in the individual events in February.
