Holly and Ella excel in the water

On July 1, as school broke for the summer, Wrekin student Holly Townson became West Midland (Open Age) 5k Open Water Champion, this qualified her for the National 5K Open Water Championships where she finished 14th overall against some of the UK's elite international open water competitors. She has been selected to represent Shropshire at the National Inter County Championships in October.

Both Holly and her sister Ella have qualified for the Midlands Winter Long Course Championships in November - this will be Ella's first time at this prestigious championship and she has qualified in 100 Fly.

Congratulations to both girls!
