BSC at East Region Junior Championships

Congratulations to BSC swimmers Anouk, Nick and Faith who swam at the Swim England East Region Junior Championships last weekend in the 50m pool at Luton. These championships are for swimmers aged 11-14 years who can reach the high qualifying standards. It’s been five years since we had more than one Bottisham swimmer attend a Regional Championships!

Anouk was placed 30th in the region in her 50m butterfly; Faith was 31st in the 50m breaststroke and 21st in the 100m breaststroke; and Nick was 21st in the 50m butterfly, 22nd in the 100m backstroke, 22nd in the 200m backstroke and a particularly brilliant 12th in the 50m backstroke.

These championships are a great building block for the future: it’s all great experience of long course racing. Well done to all three of you – we’re really proud of you!

Mary (age 17) with 200 Fly

Anouk (age 11) with 200 Free, 50 Fly

 

There was one bit of sad news about the weekend, and that is because it was Yvonne Winterborns last competition with us. She will at the SFL but that’s not quite like a full weekend meet. She has always been a great person to have along at competitions with her positive and friendly attitude she will be missed. She signed out in style though with her last race by being the outright winner and getting gold in 100m IM, well done Yvonne.

Thank you to all those parents who helped in the hall, to the officials, and to coach Ciara.
