Members of Gower College Swansea's Netball Academy team took part in the recent Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton Relay in Swansea.

As winners of a Swansea Sports Award in 2016, the team were invited to accompany the Baton Bearer during Leg 6* of the Relay, which took place between Blackpill and the 360 Beach and Watersports Centre. 

"This was a great honour for the team and we were delighted to be a part of such a momentous event," says Curriculum Leader for Sport, Sarah Lewis. "Everyone really enjoyed walking alongside the Baton Bearer and travelling along the promenade on the Land Train."

* The Baton Relay was made up of 11 Legs, starting at Knab Rock at 7.30am and finishing at the National Waterfront Museum at approximately 10:30am.
