Congratulations to all our swimmers on a great competition. Everyone was fantastic! We finished 9th overall, about where we expected this year, especially as we did not have a full complement of individual teams with several being away on holiday. This was the first time I have not been able to field a boys junior championship team!
Special congratulations to our medal winners:
Open Men’s Team – Will Le Merle, Tom Hogg, Sam Munro & Will Jagger Bronze in the 4 x 100 medley relay and Silver in the 4 x 100 free relay. I think you will all agree when I say Will Jagger was simply stunning in the free relay final, swimming a 50.72s split on his 100 free!
Boy’s 9-11yrs Team: Joshua Sheward, Sammy Smith, Ashton Netherwood & Henry Williams Silver in the 4 x 50 medley relay and Bronze in the 4 x 50 free relay, with another great finish coming from Ashton, who stormed past other teams to win the free bronze. The biggest heat to final improvement in both relays coming from Joshua!
All finalists improved their times from heat to finals – exactly what we want to see! Most heat splits were faster than PBs too.
With huge thanks to our lovely helpers: Coaches – Helen, Tamsin & Tina; Officials – Bernie, Tim, Dean, Darren & Heidi; Computers – Jacqui
