What a fantastic start to the County Championships !!
Lewis, Ryan, Sam and Tom all swam in the 100m Free; personal best times, County qualifying times for next year as well as Regional times for Tom and Lewis had them all smiling. And as a bonus, having finished in the top 8 in their age groups, both Lewis and Tom went onto the final round for this event – with outstanding performances by them both.
Next up were the girls and the 100m Individual Medley (IM), we had 6 of our swimmers in this event; Bethany, Eloise, Mia W, Jess, Mia Y and Beth Young. All did amazingly well with PBs and next year’s County times gained – this was a heat declared winner event so no age group finals. Well done girls!
Boys were next in the 50m Fly – a rapid and very splashy event! Fin, Ryan, Sam and Tom swam their best and finished with a PB for Fin and a place in the final for Tom.
Lastly for today were the girls in the 50m Freestyle, 22 heats for this event and we had 8 swimmers competing. Bethany, Abi, Megan, Mia W, Beth Young, Eloise and Mia Y all did fabulously and gained a total of 2 PBs, 5 County times for next year and 1 Regional qualifying time (Mia Y). Mia Y and Eloise made the finals in their age groups and swam brilliantly.
All in all, a tiring but great day for the club’s swimmers.
Between now and tomorrow the schedule will look a little like this…..
EAT -> SLEEP -> SWIM -> REPEAT
