QEGS swimmers have amassed a staggering 30 qualifying County Championship times between them, to compete at the Lancashire County Championships early next year.

Amy, Anastasia and Daniel, all swimmers from Blackburn Centurions Swimming Club and Baylie from Pioneer 79 have all trained extremely long hours in the pool.  Their hard work this year has paid off, as Anastasia has qualified for 2 events, Daniel for 7, Amy for 8 and Baylie for 13 events.

With Lancashire having the toughest times to reach in order qualify for County Championships in the country, the pupils have swum extremely well to meet these required times.  The competition will be held over two weekends in Manchester and Liverpool.

Also, QEGS team swimmer and water polo player Jacob, this year was invited to train in the Under 18 boys NW Academy.  With the final training day taking place last weekend, and still only being 15, Jacob is hoping for team selection to compete in the Under 18’s Inter-Regional Championships which will take place in February 2019.

We wish all of our swimmers the very best of luck.
