Dinnaton Teams Take Medals at County Relay Championships

Nathaniel Rookes

12 of our swimmers raced in the Devon Relay Championships, a county event attended my a host of clubs across the area. Each team completed the 4x50 fc & 4x50 medley relays.

Our 10/11 combined girls team was made up of Maddy Jones, Frida Gallego-Cooper, Issy Hawling & Holly Haymes. After producing a strong swim in the medley relay, narrowing missing out on collecting a bronze medal, they rallied and achieved a fantastic silver in the front crawl event.

We entered 2 teams into the combined 12/13 age group.

A team made up of just 12 year olds, consisting of Isla Pollak, Gemma Bennett, Amelia Enticknap & Olivia Jones produced some fantastic swims in both events, remaining very competitive despite being in the lower end of their age group, preparing themselves well for the remainder of the season and next year!

The team of 13 year olds containing Madison Oman, Jas D'Cunha, Sophia King & Megan Harris swam a strong race, taking a bronze medal in the front crawl event before producing an unbelievable relay swim in the medley race to become Devon Champions by over 2 seconds! 

This was an amazing team gala with a very positive atmosphere and some amazing swims, many of which where swimmers are beating their own personal best times!
