Year 7 student now part of the Junior County Squad!
Holly Warnes first took part in the Eggar's supported Primary Schools Swimming Gala in January 2016. Back then she could only swim breaststroke but that first gala inspired her to take lessons.
In 2017 Holly entered the Gala again and this time she was able to swim 25m front crawl in just over 60 seconds. She realised how much she enjoyed swimming, so she joined Alton & District Swim Club.
Holly has now worked her way up to swimming in the Junior County Squad, training for over 6 hours per week and taking part in various competitions. Now that she has started at Eggar's she looks forward to joining other club swimmers at school and being an inspiration to others.
And what does progress look like?
She can now do 25m front crawl in under 17 seconds!
The 2019 Primary School Swimming Gala is already in the diary: 15th January at Alton Sports Centre. Eggar's are looking forward to sponsoring the event again and hopefully it will be the start of another young champion's swimming career.
