Hello and welcome to the start of 2018/19 season.
We have already dived straight in with our first competition last weekend at the Nifty 50’s….
We had 52 swimmers which is the most we have every taken to a competition. It was great to see and I hope we can continue to take lots of swimmers to future meets (without me having to pest everyone). It is very important for the swimmers to attend with their friends and have fun and It makes a huge difference to see how they are progressing, particularly the younger swimmers.
We had 124 PB’s including 13 new swims which is a great start after the summer holidays. There was some great swims with a lot of big improvements, the biggest of the day was Mya taking off 17.36 seconds in her IM.
Here is a list of how many each swimmer achieved:
5 PBs – Mauricio, Livia, Cassidy, Anna N, Mya, Freya
4 PBs – Evie, Tom C, Ethan, Katherine, Patryk, Rebekah, Zubair, Mary O, Maia, Chris, Megan
3 PBs – Mary B, Zavi, Phoebe, Livia
2 PBs – Anna B, Ruby, Nina, Matteo, Sam, Freddy, Lewis P, Millie, Joseph, Justine, Arwen, Lilla, Eleanor, Amy, Bethan, Anouk
1 PBs – Jack, Matthew, Ellen C, Alex, Tom H, Izzy, Lewis K, Freddy, Katie, Andrew

Thank you to all the parent volunteers and Suzy for helping manage everyone’s swims and to the officials.
