Millfiled Super Series Age Group Squad Report

REPORT: MILLFIELD & STREET SUPER SERIES 22ND – 24TH MARCH 2019

AGE GROUP SQUAD MEDAL TABLE

8 x Gold

6 x Silver

8 x Bronze

There was a wealth of talent on show at the Millfield and Street Super Series meet at the weekend with some very big clubs in attendance. Our sincere thanks must go to the hosts for running a great meet. For the Age Group squads this was our first chance to experience a long course meet in the lead up to the Regional Championships in May. The meet also offered an opportunity to educate our swimmers on the difference between long course and short course racing.

In the 11 year Age Group, Luca S continued his success at the County Championships last month as he won 6 Golds, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze medals. He was also top point scorer. Luca’s swims in the 100m Butterfly and 100m Breaststroke were impressive as set new 12 year old club records in both events and reduced his long course PB’s by over 13 seconds. He also improved his 200m Individual Medley time by almost 20 seconds. Luca’s results follow a good period of hard work in training and a huge improvement in his all-round fitness. These results should put him in good shape for Regionals.

Jack G had a busy weekend as he won a Silver medal in the 1500m Freestyle and a Bronze medal in the 400m Individual Medley. Team mate Freddie B put in a superb swim in the 200m Breaststroke to take second place. His time of 3:01.74 makes him the fastest swimmer in the Region to date in this event and it was good to see him holding his technique and keeping the length on his stroke.

Swimming in her first long course meet Abigail S swam exceptionally well to win two Bronze medals in the 100m Butterfly and 50m Backstroke.

In the 12 year Age Group Tilly M recorded a time of 2:43.77 to take first place in the 200m Butterfly. This is an incredibly hard event to swim but Tilly was not fazed by it at all as she told Coach Jan that she had “quite enjoyed it” - Well done Tilly! In the same Age band Arron H started off the weekend for the Age Group squads on a high note on Friday evening as he took third place in the 800m Freestyle. Going one place better, Zoe S won a Silver medal in the 1500m Freestyle. To round off the weekend in the last of the Boys events, Charlie M swam 28.84 in the 50m Freestyle winning a Silver medal and rounding off a really good weekend for our 12 year olds.

 

Success came in the 13 year Age Group as Alex C improved the PB’s he set in January in the 50m, 100m Butterfly and 200m Butterfly winning 1 Gold and 2 Silver medals. Alex is on track to make Nationals this year if he can maintain his form and enjoy some uninterrupted training. The other medal winner in the 13 year Age Group was Molly G who won a Silver medal in the 1500m Freestyle.

Ryan O stood out in the 14 year Age Group as he won Bronze medals in both the 800m Freestyle and the 400m Individual Medley. Ryan is another swimmer who has his sights on Nationals later on in the year and it was good to see him swimming PB’s in every event at the start of the National Qualifying window.

All in all this was a hugely successful meet for the club as we were placed in the “Top 3” overall. There were some good performances and a huge PB rate from all of our younger swimmers. As well as the medal winners, swimmers who stood out included: Dan A (100m Freestyle); Lilia B (200m Freestyle); Fin C (50m Freestyle); Holly C (50m Breaststroke); Jess H (50m Butterfly; 200m Backstroke); Xavi J (200m Individual Medley; 200m Breaststroke); Sheila M (50m Freestyle); Zack S (200m Backstroke); Betsy V (50m Butterfly and 400m Freestyle).

Sincere thanks go to our officials and parents who do so much to support the swimmers. Thank you also to Annabel (Friday); to Phil (Saturday) and to Tracy (Sunday) for Team Managing and assisting on poolside. Finally, thank you to coaches: Barry, Becky, Jan and Sam for their unstinting commitment to a large contingent of swimmers over a busy weekend.
