Year 8 Pupil Swims To Success in Hertfordshire County Swimming Championships 2018

year 8 pupil swimming champHuge congratulations to amazing award winning swimmer Georgia Pritchard in Year 8, who has recently enjoyed much swimming success. Following her selection for the ASA East Region Age Group Talent Program for the 2017/2018 season Georgia has produced some great performances with 9 PB’s and 7 Regional qualifying times. She is a member of Hatfield Swimming Club and attends 7 swimming sessions a week, with her training schedule requiring her to often train twice daily; both before and also after school. This normally involves a very early start with her alarm going off at 4.30am so she can be up and ready for action by the poolside at 5.15am ! In addition she also runs on a Saturday at an Athletic Club in St Albans.

At the Hertfordshire County Swimming Championships 2018, held at Borehamwood Pool on 21st January, Georgia was narrowly pipped into second place in the overall competition but she did successfully retain all three of her county titles in the process; 100 breast, 200 breast, 400 Individual Medley and achieved Silver in the 50 Breast and 800 Free style as well. Plus she was presented with a further Gold and Bronze medal as a member of Hatfield SC’s age group relay squads.
Well done Georgia all your dedication and sheer hard work has really paid off! STAGS community are very proud of your achievements.

Georgia Pritchard, Year 8J
