Over the last few years, both current and ex Stanley students have had some tremendous success with their swimming. Just recently Holly Hibbott qualified for the World Championship final in Budapest but it is the exploits of two current students who we are particularly proud of: Jess and Abbie are members of Southport Swimming Club, and they have recently taken part in both the North West Championships, English Championships and British Championships.
Abbie came first in the North West Championships in both 100m and 200m backstroke and qualified for the finals in both English and British Nationals. Jess competed in the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke events, the 200m medley and the 400m and 800m freestyle. Jess made the final in the last four events and was a gold medallist in the 800m, smashing her personal best by 7 seconds.
Both girls success is well deserved as their dedication to their training is reaping its rewards. As a school, we are very proud of their achievements, well-done girls.
