Regional Results and on to Nationals


The Regional Championships, which saw a record number of Taunton Deane swimmers making qualifying and consideration times, has now finished.

Over the 3 weekends Taunton Deane swimmers had some brilliant results, with a total medal haul of 9 Golds, 7 Silvers and 12 Bronze. Apart from this total of 28 medals there were also 44 finalists swims, with many achieving personal best times.

All swimmers should feel rightly proud of taking part in one of the best regional results for Taunton Deane Swimming Club.

There was the chance for swimmers, born in years 2003 to 2000, to be selected to swim for South West/Swim England at the Bulgarian National Championships in Sofia. We are delighted that Holly Hudghton has been picked, and therefore representing Taunton Deane. Good luck Holly.

In the 12 year age group we have had 3 swimmers selected to go on the South West Regional pathway training. So well done to them.

With only one more weekends swimming to go of the National qualifying window (closes 28th May) there is a nervous wait for the 12 swimmers, with a total of 58 qualifying times between them, to see if they make it to Sheffield in July and August.
