Following a very close battle with Cinderford, the Cotswold team excelled to come out on top by just 3 points last night in the latest Cotswold round. Meredith Pollard and Joe Thorne were awarded Star Swimmers on a night when the team really pulled together and notched up their second win of the series. Thanks to Stuart and all his helpers. Full results and times to follow.
In the meantime, Harriet Dickinson has just finished her campaign up in Glasgow at the British Para-Swimming International Meet and boy did she finish in style on the last day – by qualifying for the C Final of the 400m Freestyle where she came an amazing 6th against competition from Ireland, Canada, Germany, Norway and Britain. A full report of Harriet’s performance will follow, but for the meantime – WOW!
The final press release covering the Somerset ASA County Championships is now available to read on our Press Release page. Also our Records page has been updated to include all the new Club Best Times achieved over the 4 weeks of competition. No less than 36 of them! And also 127 Regional consideration or qualifying times – amazing!
Check out this great photo on Facebook of our own Harriet Dickinson competing up in Glasgow in the British Para-Swimming International Meet. Great start to her campaign so far – two personal best times! Go Harriet!
The team sheet for the next round of the Cotswold on Sat 18th April is now available – details on our Competitions page. Venue and timing to be confirmed. Please confirm availability to Fiona (Stuart away over Easter) or tick the sheet on the board. We will confirm details as soon as we have them.
Congratulations to Highdown Juniors and The Red Maid’s School who, on Monday night at Millfield at the ESSA Primary Schools Relay Championships, secured places in the National Final at the famous Ponds Forge Pool in Sheffield.
Clevedon swimmers were involved in helping the schools achieve this success. For Highdown Juniors, Ella Jenkins and Freya Elliot were part of the medley relay team which came 2nd (by hundredths of a second!) in the Large School category. Representing The Red Maid’s School in the Middle School category was Isabel Major, part of a team which came 3rd in both freestyle and medley relays and therefore also through to the National Final. Both schools will travel to Sheffield on Saturday 20th June – the only disappointment being that they will miss our Clevedon & Chard Meet – but we’ll forgive them!!
Other club swimmers in action on Monday night were Ryan Baldwin and Danny Rose for Highdown Juniors and William Finch and Bertie Williams for St Josephs. Full Results
