Three teams of swimmers from the Whitby area will battle to be the district’s bestafter winning through to the Ryedale and Whitby partnership final .

The Whitby School Sports Partnership Association held its annual swimming gala, sponsored by York Potash, last Tuesday.

Thirteen local schools took part and participated in a series of individual and team events.

Individual school winners: breast stroke - Glaisdale/Goathland & Ruswarp; backstroke - Sleights & Hawsker; butterfly - Glaisdale/Goathland & Ruswarp; freestyle- Airy Hill & West Cliff; mixed freestyle relay - Airy Hill; mixed medley relay - Glaisdale/Goathland.

The three top teams qualified for the Ryedale / Whitby partnership finals at Pickering in June - they were Ruswarp, Glaisdale/Goathland and Airy Hill.

Gala organiser Andrea Hansell said: “The association thanks you all who helped in the run-up to the event and on the day.”
