Congratulations to all our swimmers who competed in the Littlehampton Splash into 2017 Open Meet on Sunday 8th January at the Arun Leisure Centre in Bognor.
Despite some tough competition, our swimmers did a fantastic job. Every single swimmer achieving a Personal Best. This was a great result, as for some of our younger swimmers it was their very first Gala. They should all be enormously proud of themselves.
A few of our swimmers have been busy attending open meets in order to gain their licensed county times. Tom Hogg, Amber Mac-rae and Grace Womer-sley attended the PeterBull Meet at Waterlooville on 21st November. They were joined by Katie White, representing Millfield. All swam good personal best times (PBs), with Tom and Amber both winning medals. Tom gained two Gold and two Silver medals, whilst Amber gained Silver in the 200m butterfly. Katie swam for time only, posting the fastest 200 free time in her age group. Tom swam a 12 second PB in his 200 breast to easily achieve his county time. Amber swam a 19 second PB in her 200 free and Grace a 9 second PB in her 100 breast. Fantastic!
The following weekend saw Tom, Amber and Abbie Turner at Portsmouth. Tom swam two good PBs, both county times, winning with gold in the 200 back and silver in the 400 free. Amber swam a good PB in her 100 fly and edging closer to her county time. Abbie swam a superb PB to gain her 400 IM county time, winning Silver.
Great work guys!
