The small school entry saw 5 schools competing they were – Debden, Friends, Rickling, Ashdon and Chrishall.

The final result of the top three schools were –year 3 and 4 – 1st – Chrishall, 2nd Friends, 3rd Ashdon in the year 5and 6 -1st Ashdon, 2nd Chrishall and 3   Friends. The overall school who won the small schools competition –  Ashdon.

In the large schools the competition between Katherine Semar and Ra Butler was so close. In the year 3 and 4 events Katherine Semar were beaten by only 1point! Ra Butler won both events and so all winning schools will go through to the next competition where they will swim against the Dunmow and Stansted school winners. Eventually we will have the top school representing Uttlesford in the Essex Games in the summer.
