Leys School celebrates by getting its hands on the Denelm Cup for the first time since 1939.
The team of Austin Johnson, Christopher Howe, Alexander Hsieh and Isaac Hoy secured silver medals after finishing first in the Small Schools Medley Relay, which formed part of the Bath Cup event.
After their win, the quartet took an early lead in the final at the London Aquatics Centre, eventually stopping the clock in a time of 1 minute 56.35 seconds. They finished ahead of Lansing College and Cheltenham College, who finished second and third respectively.
Harriet Ley, Head of Swimming at The Leys, said: “This has been a real story of resilience. These four boys have stuck together through the pandemic and lockdown and their fourth-place finish last year motivated them to do even better. It’s great that the school has this trophy for the first time since Over 80 years old, which is a testament to the hard work and dedication shown by the pupils.
These four boys have been instrumental in helping to change the spirit around swimming and we currently have a fantastic group of pupils on both the men’s and women’s teams.
“Their hard work and dedication is really starting to show in our offerings and this trophy is the cherry on top.”
