Blue Coat Swimming Gala
The annual inter house swimming gala took place on Friday the 3rd of February.
Congratulations to Lord Motherill who are our 2017 Inter-House Swimming Gala champions. The result was in the balance until the final leg of the final relay of the evening. The scene was set for a grandstand finish with Birley Hall stalwart Eri-Be Doro diving in on the last leg with a big lead over Lord Mothersill’s City of Manchester swimming star Matty Riddell. The contrasting techniques made for an engrossing finish as somehow Ridell managed to out touch Doro on the wall to take the title for Lord Mothersill.
Congratulations to all of the 100 plus participants who gave up their Friday evening to represent their house. The Inter-House Swimming Gala really encapsulates the beauty of inter house competition at Blue Coat. With novice and expert swimmers from differing year groups coming together to form one team.
Birley Hall – 300
Lord Mothersill – 316
Rowntree Wrigley – 280
