Taunton Deane and Millfield Summer Sizzler


Cheddar Kingfishers Swimming Club at Taunton Deane and Millfield Summer Sizzler 2019


Cheddar Kingfishers entered twenty-three swimmers in the Taunton Deane and Millfield summer Sizzler at Millfield School on 16 June.  Zoe Alvey, Anna Banks, Kiera Reed O’Grady and Josh Hutchinson all made their debut for the club. The team with representatives from all squads was on good form with twelve top three finishes and 53 top ten finishes from 86 events.  


There were very strong swims and new best times from Anna Banks, Zara Bird, Lois Brimm, Ed Hardman, Phoebe Hillman, Tilly Hullah, Louis and Oliver Hurst, Josh and Sam Hutchinson, Cassidy Iles, Ewan McClumpha, Kiera Reed-O’Grady, Jemima Seagrove, Beau Sedgwick, Lucy Todd, and Isla Warman.


Megan McClumpha was first in the 50m Freestyle and 50m Backstroke. Olivia Iles finished second in the 50m and 100m Freestyle and Simon Toogood was second in the 50m Butterfly. Jack Brimm and Toogood were both third in the 50m and 100m Freestyle. Zoe Alvey finished third in the 100m Freestyle and Grace Hurst was third in the 100m Breaststroke and the 100m Individual Medley.


This was another good performance by the swimmers who have been working hard in training and competitions since the County Championships in January, and a reward for the time and effort put in by the swimmers, coaches and parents.
