A-level PE student Lucy Pearce recently won two Gold medals and Bronze at the county swimming gala final.
She successfully defended her 50m Butterfly title in a close race, she then went on to win the 50m Breaststroke Final in commanding fashion, and in her weakest stroke, Freestyle, Lucy put in another strong performance to bring back the Bronze for the college.
Lucy’s success in representing St Brendan’s in the pool has to be highly recommended as she has for the last two years won medals for us at the county final. Lucy is also a great role model and example of how sport can open up opportunities beyond college life. Lucy will be heading off to Bournemouth University to study Business & IT and the university have awarded Lucy a sports scholarship to enable her to have the time to maintain her training standards. The scholarship will allow her to challenge competitively in the BUSA swimming competition. Who knows, we might be cheering Lucy on at the Commonwealth Games in Australia in 2018!
