The U13 and U12 squads enjoyed a closely fought afternoon in the Ashdown pool with the swimmers finishing within a couple of metres of each other. After 10 races there were only 4 points between the two teams.   It was neck and neck down to the last few races with Ashdown narrowly beating Cottesmore.  A needle match with some outstanding swimming and amazing team spirit by both sides.  Well done.  JR

Swimming Gala v St Ronan's
We hosted a friendly, but lively Gala against St Ronan's with squads of Under 10s, U11s, U12s, U13s competing.. 

All the races were close in ability and time.  It was noticeable how our swimmers have improved over the Autumn Term.  After 20 races there were only two points between the two teams.   It was neck and neck down to the last few races and Ashdown was narrowly beaten into second place with 79 to St Ronans 81.  A close fought match with some outstanding swimming by both sides.  Well done.  JR

Swimming v Cottesmore
1st    99      Cottesmore A
2nd   75      Ashdown A
3rd    32      Cottesmore B
4th    23      Ashdown B

The U11s, U10s and U9s faced off against Cottesmore in a swimming gala in which every race was competitive and closely fought until the very end. The afternoon was also riddled with intrigue in terms of the rules of swimming, which were under close inspection from Mrs Rigg throughout. 
.
Everyone showed great sportsmanship during the entire event, which was brilliant to see. As we have come to expect with Cottesmore, they had a number of very strong swimmers who were too much for us to handle at times.
Final positions from first to last as follows: Cottesmore A, Ashdown A, Cottesmore B, Ashdown B.
Well done to everyone who took part!  W.T.

Swimming Gala at Cottesmore
Ashdown arrived at Cottesmore with Storm Dorris having tried to blow the minibus off course.  Both teams showed superb sporting spirit, and the close scores reflected the effort which was put in by both teams.  The races were close, but Cottesmore seemed to have the vital edge in the last few metres of the pool.  Although we tried our hardest, we weren't quite able to out-swim some of the talented Cottesmore swimmers.
Final score: Ashdown 59, Cottesmore 63.   WT
