Arena team photo and team manager report

Arena team 2014A very excited and proud Mike Smith has published his first Arena team manager report – and what a way to start Mike!  The full results make great reading and the final points show how close it really was – Barnstaple 286, Bournemouth B 250, Clevedon 249, Street 247, Seagulls 221, Paignton 195, Chard 184 and Cirencester 163.  Of course, these results do still have to be validated.  Currently, this means that Clevedon ASC will have finished 14th in the league.  It’s difficult to compare this with our 9th last year, as in 2013 there were 18 teams, whereas this year there are 24.  Certainly taking this into account and the fact that in many of the double age categories we have many swimmers in the lower age group, then this year is an outstanding result and next year should be equally exciting.

Our supporters certainly excelled themselves and we are sure they spurred our swimmers on – thank you!  Thanks also to the officials – we supplied 5 on the night – and to the marshals who as always did a great job.  Thanks too to the Captains on the night – Jack, George, Elena, Finlay and India.

A fantastic finale to our Arena campaign and bring on next year!!

Amazing Arena team bag 3rd spot

Thanks all!

RESULTS NOW ADDED – RESULTS.   Report and press release to follow!

4 at Regional Championships and Callum makes final

finalistElena Crossan, Callum Greenwood, George Leaman and Lizzie Warnes all represented the club at the ASA South West Winter Championships at Millfield at the weekend.  We are still waiting for official results and times, but can report on an excellent weekend for all four.  Elena performed near her best, despite still suffering from a recent illness, Lizzie surprised herself (but maybe not Pete!) with personal best times, George had a strong weekend with an excellent 7th place finish in the 400IM 15 & under and Callum topped it all with an appearance in the last final of the weekend, the 50m backstroke, getting a personal best in both the heat and the final to finish in 6th place (having gone into the final in 7th).

Our congratulations to them all for their well-deserved success at such a high level meet.
