Building on the success from the first weekend, the 18 under 14 year old swimmers who went to Waterlooville achieved a wonderful 62 personal bests between them.  Overall 47 swims were top 8 finishes with 34 swims inside the Regional Qualifying Times.  Medals were won across all ages with special mention to Allie who won another 2 golds, 3 silvers and 1 bronze, Emily who won another 4 silvers and 1 bronze, Matthew who won 6 more silvers, Penny and Fraser who both won a bronze, Macey who also won a bronze in 50 fly.  Gabrielle and Zoe just missed out on medals with some 4ths.  Riz Ellison, Evie, Hannah, Jadan and Danny all experienced the counties for the first time and did well with a string of PBs.  As head coach, David Terry said, "These results are another true Indicator of the progression we are currently making.  We had more younger swimmers qualify, more younger swimmers in Finals and Podium positions.  Not to mention a very good ‘Personal Best Hit Rate."  Watch this space for future success!
