English National Relay Championships 2018
Saturday the 17th November at the London Aquatic Centre

Further to success at the Kent County Schools’ Swimming Championships back in September, Walthamstow Hall qualified for this year’s National Finals. These were held on Saturday 17th November at the London Aquatic Centre. Walthamstow Hall were represented in the Intermediate and Senior age groups.
Those representing the Senior Team were: Laura Wright, Isabella Childs, Zoe Naylor-Perrott and Emma Evans-Wilson.
The girls representing our Intermediate Team were: Millie Childs, Lilie Chambers, Imogen Stoddart, Edith Norton and Mimi Vorster.
All of the girls had outstanding performances in the heats and qualified through to the finals in three of the team events on the day. The finals comprised of the top 10 teams in England and I’m pleased to announce the following results.
Intermediates 4 x 50m Freestyle Relay Team came 4th in England in this event and just outside the medals. This was the highest place finish that Walthamstow Hall has ever achieved at this competition.
Intermediate 4 x 50m Medley Relay Team came 7th in England in this event.
Seniors 4 x 50m Freestyle Team came 8th in England in this event.
Congratulations to all of our swimmers who swum superbly on the day and achieved fantastic results at a national level.
Special thanks also to all parents who came to support Team Wally.
