2016-2017 was the first year that Borlase have entered a team into swimming fixtures and it came with great success. Throughout the year, we raced at Girls and Boys Junior, Intermediate and Senior level. Alongside friendly galas, held as Wycombe Abbey School and Piper’s Corner, we also entered the English Schools Championships. With many experienced swimmers within the school, Borlase were able to compete at all levels and all events, not to mention the fantastic personal successes outside the school setting. In 2016, the Junior Girls came 15th in the South Region at the English Schools Swimming Championships. This was a fantastic result for such a small squad and one we hope to build on in the future.
We look forward to next season with anticipation. Borlase Swimming is still very much in the early stages, but it is a sport we hope to grow, competing at all levels and standards across the board with success in all.
