A HENLEY primary school ran out winners in both boys’ and girls’ events at last Wednesday’s Sainsbury’s School Games, Oxfordshire Swimming finals.
There were two competitions, one for year five/six boys and one for year five/six girls. Valley Road had won through two rounds to secure their place in the finals at Abingdon where swimmers had to compete in an individual event (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke or butterfly) and then two relays (freestyle and medley). All the competitors in the Valley Road team swam well, coming highly placed or winning many of the events, with Will Butler and Betsy Greengrass impressing with their freestyle race wins.
The overall title was secured for both boys and girls after timings across heats were added up. The boys’ team included Will Butler, Charlie Shaw, Harrison Bell and James Laing while the girls’ team consisted of Elsa Horne, Josie Sawbridge, Betsy Greengrass, Charlotte Beadsmore and Ella Collins.
