On Wednesday 18 March the 2015 GSV Swim team lead by captain Phoebe D, finished an outstanding 2nd overall in the GSV Division 1 Championship! This exceptional team result means that for the third year in a row, Ruyton has ranked 2nd in swimming out of the 24 GSV member schools. For many years, Ruyton has had two GSV Swimming records – Libby Forbes in Year 11 Breaststroke (set in 2009) and Phoebe O’Sullivan in Year 9 Butterfly (set in 2004). This year our Year 7 swimmers set four new records and we congratulate the following girls on this outstanding achievement:
Mia W Year 7 A Freestyle (28.11sec)
Rachel C Year 7 B Freestyle (29.90sec)
Sascha C Year 7 D Freestyle (30.98sec)
The Year 7, 4 x 50m Freestyle team of Rachel C, Sascha C, Vanessa L and Mia W (1.59:86 sec).
Ruyton now holds six GSV swimming records! Thanks to our Ruyton Swimming Coach Mrs Lauren McLaverty and also to PE staff member Mrs Ange Allen for their enthusiasm and work throughout the season.
