Swimmers Strike Gold In District Gala

Higham Lane School struck gold three times in the Nuneaton & District Swimming Gala.

The event, held at the Pingles on November 22, saw Higham entering the biggest squad in town - three Year 7 teams, three Year 8 teams and two Year 9 teams.

Making a splash were the Year 7 Girls, Year 8 Girls and Year 8 Boys who all finished first, while the Year 9 Girls came away with a silver medal despite competing for most of the gala with just two swimmers!

PE teacher, Mrs Mitchell, commented: ``Well done to all the students who competed, it's great to have continued success in the pool!''
