Somerset County Long & Middle-Distance Meet 2019

Duncan Verel

Keynsham go to a lot of effort to make sure this event goes ahead, unfortunately finding long distance swimming pool events can be tricky. They don’t have quite the cut and thrust of a 50m event, swimmers have to rely more heavily on tactics, concentration and stamina.

With that in mind a number of the Wells Squad Swimmers attended the meet on the last day of November.

Ex-Wells Swimmer Asta Maddox is still impressing she dropped 20s off her 400IM PB.

As for our current crop Brianna Davies took first and Sian Davies second in the 800m free (9-11)

In the 1500m free Anthony Davies and Owen Dukes got a first, as did Evelyn Wigley, while Katie Chambers got 2nd in their respective age groups.

Elizabeth Chambers was 4th in the u14 girls 800m.

Kitty Stone was 4th in the u15s 800m.
