Close on his heels was Greta Jackson with a 100% conversion of 4 races, 4 gold (50m BK, BR, FC & 100m IM) and 4 pb’s…another one with no excuses when it now comes to training

For me as the coach, the swimmers who medalled did really well, but there were also a lot of fantastic swims from the other swimmers…some but not all are listed below

  • Ben Hilton who achieved 7 pb’s…the smallest being by 0.03secs…but they all count
  • Evie Dargue who achieved 7 pb’s whilst wearing a Leek beanie hat for the entirety of day 1
  • Hannah Proffitt who achieved 5 pb’s and kept Nina and Mel amused each time she finished her race
  • Imogen Mollart who achieved a clean sweep of 9 races, 9pb’s
  • Miley-Ann Brown who pb’d every race…despite being constantly tired
  • Robyn Schiller who achieved a clean sweep of 7 races, 7pb’s and a silver

Congratulations to everyone who swam

Lastly, a big THANK YOU to:

Simon, Ana, Elaine & Julia

Without you guys on poolside to help, we would not be able to achieve such fantastic results…THANK YOU

Finally, it was great to see many of our swimmers in the new club kit. It looked very good, so a thank you to Mel for her hard work in getting it sorted.

Satellites meet is 16-17th October…see you at training Tuesday 😊
