SWIMMER Cassie Walker has been named a finalist in a national competition.
The 17-year-old Huddersfield swimmer has just received news that she has qualified to race in the British Gas Swimming Championships, to be held in Wales in the summer.
Cassie will compete in six events – 50m, 100m and 200m breast stroke and 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle.
And the student at Hipperholme Grammar School was last month crowned champion of Yorkshire for her performance in the Yorkshire Bi-athlon. The victory has meant that she qualifies for a place in the national finals later this month at Crystal Palace.
