32 schools entered this year’s North Somerset Primary Schools gala which, as a result, had to be held over two sessions. There were several schools entered for the first time, with the North of the area competing in the first session and the South in the second. Clevedon swimmers were in action representing their schools and the competition was exciting and the support noisy!
The results are now on our results page, together with Sue Clinton’s report of the event. Sue was again heavily involved in encouraging local schools to enter and with the organisation on the day. Clevedon ASC parents and helpers formed a significant part of the supporting workforce with John Merritt, our ex-Chairman and Life member of the club, refereeing again, which he has done since the start of the competition many years ago.
The times from all the galas were put together in a virtual gala to come up with the eventual winners who will be presented with their awards at school. Times for Clevedon swimmers have also been entered onto the club’s database.
Some great swimming at the Academy Sprint Meet at Burnham saw many medallists. Well done to Ryan Baldwin, Sophie Chambers, Francesca Coveney, Megan Fry, Erica Godfrey, Amelia Hancock, Ella Jenkins, Jake Manning, Isabelle Mitchell, Sophie Olver, Abigail Phipps, Danny Rose, Mason Smith, Max Streeter, Sam Streeter, Joe Thorne and Nathan Turner.
There were many pb’s which, with all 50m races, is brilliant. The biggest improvement on the day saw Elliott May-Hawkins knock a massive 9 seconds off his 50m free time!
Results are now on our Results page – well done everyone and the Academy also asked us to pass on their thanks to our officials!
Backwell hosted the first Four Seasons of the year. A great evening of swimming, very exciting and lots of noise! A close competition, our swimmers performed brilliantly and with fantastic support. With Backwell pulling away at the front, there was an intense battle between Henleaze, Clevedon and Bishopsworth for 2nd to 4th slot, with Clevedon swimming strongly to come away with 3rd. Thanks to Jon Gall (pictured receiving the club’s Andy Nicol Volunteer of the Year Award 2014) and his team of helpers and officials.
The results are now available on our Results page and Jon’s report will follow.
