Pupils from Bolton School including our very own Maddie Kennedy competed in the National Swimming Championships at Ponds Forge Sheffield, taking on twenty four teams from all areas of the country.
Maddie and her team mates had qualified to swim in both the Freestyle Relay and the Medley Relay by recording very good times in the preliminary rounds earlier this year.
In the Medley relay they qualified for the final in 8th place and after an exceptional swim in the finals placed 5th with a time of 1.11 67.
In the Freestyle relay, the team had an amazing swim in the heats to put them into the final in 6th place in a time of 1.01.41. They really pushed hard in the finals but unfortunately got themselves disqualified for a faulty change over.
Well Done to Maddie and her team mates from all at Chorley Marlins.
