Portal Pack

A team of 5 boys from the Pack recently took part in the annual Chester District Swimming Gala which was held at the Chester City Baths.

The boys competed against 8 other teams from the District in age groups of 8, 9 and 10 year olds.

The gala included individual races for each age in breast stroke, backstroke and freestyle as well as freestyle and medley relays.

The team, Henry Oliver & Lucas Dorsett (10 year olds), Cameron Stewart & Theo Lavin(9 year olds) and Rory Dorsett (8 year old) all swam brilliantly and represented the Pack well.

The competition was tough and after all races were over the pack emerged with 2 medals, both going to Henry Oliver, a gold in the freestyle and a silver in the backstroke. Henry’s success means he will now be part of the team representing the District at the County Gala on 17th November.

Special mention perhaps should go to Rory who as the only 8 year old in the team had to take part in all 5 races!

However I was very proud of the whole team who as ever were well behaved and a pleasure to take to the event. Well done to you all and thank you.
