Swim England Masters National Short Course Championships 28-30 October 2022

John Reed
Following our Masters trip to Rome for Europeans in the summer holidays, a number of our competitive swimmers headed off on the half-term holiday with their families, so numbers were slightly depleted for Masters Short Course Nationals at Ponds Forge in Sheffield. However, the team of 8 did not disappoint. Despite a very busy 8 weeks of competitions and training, the results were strong and everyone swam well. 
The team: Dave Wood, Keith Goggin, Francine Kidd, Kellyn Caldwell, India Crawshaw, Kate King, Samantha Usher and Pip Williams
3 golds, 3 silver, 7 bronze and 6 Club records were our reward
The results:
Gold: Kellyn (2) and Pip
Silver: Francine and Pip (2)
Bronze: Kellyn, Pip (4) and 2 women’s relays
Club records :
Kellyn Caldwell (30-34): 200 IM 2.28.45; 50 free 28.01
Keith Goggin (45-49): 50 breast 35.00
Pip Williams (60-64): 100 breast 1.35.00
160+ 4x50 free relay: Francine, Kate, Kellyn, Pip 1.59.75
160+ 4x50 medley relay: Francine, Samantha, Kellyn, Pip 2.14.31
Thank you as always to our coaches for getting us to where we are, especially Dave, Kieran, Patrick and Ronnie; and to the Club and Kevin for all the support.
