Woodmill HS Retain Russell Hogg Trophy

Woodmill High School

Woodmill HS swimmers retained the Russell Hogg Trophy at the 38th Inter Schools Swimming Gala for pupils with additional support needs held at Lochgelly HS and organised by Disability Sport Fife (DSF).

The 59 event swimming programme incorporated 3 very exciting relays at the end of the gala won by Madras College (girls) and Woodmill HS (boys). Other schools that participated were Balwearie HS, Glenrothes HS, Kilmaron, Bell Baxter HS, Lochgelly HS, Levemouth Academy and Queen Anne HS. The Queen Anne HS pupils were participating in their first ever DSF event.

Woodmill HS pupils topped the table with 82 points, Balwearie HS finished second with 59 points and the home team Lochgelly HS took third with 53 points. DSF will select the Fife team for the Scottish Junior Swimming Championships organised by Scottish Disability Sport at Tollcross Aquatics Centre on Wednesday 23rd November from the results at the Inter Schools Gala.

Callum Donaldson (Woodmill HS) and Holly Jane Gray (Madras College) were voted top boy and top girl of the gala.

As always at a swimming event DSF was well supported by volunteer officials from local swimming clubs and on this occasion by school ambassadors from Lochgelly HS. Assistant Rector Sam Stewart presented medals to race winners and Julie Hogg presented the Russell Hogg Trophy to Woodmill HS swimmers.
