Another brilliant day at the Devon County Championships, with a further 19 pbs and 12 finals to add to our total, along with 3 Regional Consideration Times.

Particular well done to Haydn Stone for achieving his first ever Regional Consideration Time in the 50bk, whilst Sophia King & Madison Oman added their own Consideration Times in the 200fc & 50bk respectively.

Well done too, to Ella Moss, who has won her first ever Devons medal with a stellar 🥈 in the 200fc, whilst also claiming her first club record in the process, held since 2012 by Vicki Wilkins!

And also to Tia Crews, who won 🥇 in the 50bk in a new club record time, as well as a Jnr 🥉, to Jas D'Cunha who won 🥇 in the 200brst as well as Jnr 🥈, also with a new club record, to Gemma Bennett who gained her second 🥉 of the Championships in the 200brst and to Ella D'Cunha who improved her own club record in the same event.


Day 4 Report:

Today, we have added another 30 pbs to our total, which also competing in 14 finals, taking our total to 44, far surpassing last year's total of 30 with a full weekend still to go!

It has been a brilliant day all round for our swimmers, but a few individual achievements need highlighting.

Firstly, congratulations to Johnny Guerrier & Rosie Cuming for achieving their first ever Regional Consideration Times in the 50fly and to Sophia King (400fc), Maddy Jones (400fc), Frida Gallego-Cooper (50fly) & Tia Crews (50fly) who all gained Regional Consideration Times today as well as to Madison Oman who got a full Qualifying Time in the 100brst.

Well done to Jas D'Cunha who won age group 🥇 and Jnr 🥈 in the 100brst, whilst Gemma Bennett won another 🥉 in the 100brst. Ella D'Cunha gained an age group 🥈 in the 50fly as well as an age group 🥉 in the 100brst!



It's been a very strong first half of the campaign for us and now the swimmers take a well-deserved rest from competition for the next two weeks before the final full weekend takes place in early February.

Very proud of every one of our swimmers, especially our Devon debutants who showed great composure to all pick up new pbs today and some strong swims from them yesterday.

Thank you to all out volunteers who have assisted across either of the past two weekends. As always, it is greatly appreciated!
