Tettenhall College Swimmers Represent Midlands in National Finals
Many hours of training culminated in swimming success for four Tettenhall College pupils who proudly represented the Midlands region at the ISA National Swimming finals in London earlier this month.
Jamie Welch (Year 4), Sammy McDonnell (Year 6) and Oscar Ward (Year 6) had qualified to swim in relay events in the competition. Jamie Welch swam on the day for the bronze medal winning Year 4 boys 200m freestyle relay team, competing brilliantly. Sammy finished 4th in the Year 6 boys 200m medley relay team, and both he and Oscar competed strongly in the Year 6 boys 200m freestyle relay.
Para-swimmer, Ross Wontner (Year 11) represented the Midlands for the first time in his swimming career. Ross only began swimming training when he joined Tettenhall College three years ago. School swimming academy Coach, Tracy Bate comments:
“All of the boys have shown incredible dedication and train exceptionally hard. To get four pupils into a national final is a great achievement. However, supporting Ross to qualify for the para-event has truly been a highlight of my coaching career.”
