We had two fantastic weekends at
the County Champs 2018. Both junior and senior squad swimmers
continuously surprised me with more and more outstanding swims and
regional times. After the successful last season and the very
promising autumn I was hoping to confidently win the points table
but I wasn`t expecting to gain more points than last year because
of our strongest age group (16 years old this year) moved up to
open age group and also quite few swimmers have been struggling
with illness recently but despite all of that we gained 48 points
more than last year and the gap between us and the second place got
bigger. It`s hard to highlight anyone after a meet like this.
Everyone put their piece in for the team success who gained any
points or swam in any of the relays over the two weekends. I am
extremely proud and happy to be part of this success. At the moment
we have got 30 regional qualifiers, same as last year but there are
more opportunities left to qualify. 3 swimmers gained their first
ever regional time at counties. There were 3 junior county records:
Jack T 2x on 50 backstroke and Emily J on 50 frontcrawl.
Thank you for all the coaches for their hard work.
I look forward to the national and regional qualifier meets.
