Six students took part in the Loreto College’s Swimming Gala which was held in the National Aquatic Centre on Thursday, 19 November.
This year’s team included Lauren Brady Donegan, Namh Fulton (1st Years), Rachel Whelan (5th Year), and Sinead McCrohan, Ellen O’Reilly, Catriona Finley (6th Years). It was the first time ever for Lauren and Niamh to compete in a swim competition and for Sinead, Ellen and Catriona it was their last Loreto Gala.
The team had great success with Caitriona winning gold in the Butterfly event and Rachel and Niamh both winning bronze in the backstroke and freestyle respectively. The over 16 freestyle relay team of Rachel, Sinead, Ellen and Caitriona won bronze in a tight competition – well done to all the girls!
