Our top swimmers took part in the Bath Cup (the National Public Schools Swimming Relays) at the Aquatic Centre, Stratford on Friday 11 March. This event is now in its 50th year and this year's competition saw 80 boys' and 70 girls' teams travelling from schools across the country to compete, resulting in an outstanding level of swimming.
The Bancroft’s boys team of Theo Athienitis, Zach Foster, George Whalley and Oscar Saharoy swam solid races in the 4x50m Medley Relay and 4x100m Freestyle Relay.
This year’s heats were seeded and the girls’ team of Amrita Robertson, Evie Foster, Dora Zhou, Alice Bolitho and Grace Kelly competed in the fastest heats against Caterham, Alleyn’s, James Allen’s and Eastbourne College. The girls swam well achieving some personal best times; however, they just missed out on this years finals, by a fraction of a second.
