 Excellent Night for Watford Swimming Club at Herts ASA Presentation evening

 



Lets start with the headlines Watford 2nd club overall at County Champs , well done to all our swimmers for this great result. Girls were 3rd overall in the age groups ( 15 and under ) and boys were second and then the senior girls came 2nd.

On the night awards are presented to swimmers who come in the top 8 in their age group , this is based on the points you score in your best 50, 100, 200 and distance event. To qualify you must swim something from each category.

So Counties 2017 is now over, but what a finish to the championships for our young swimmers.
Kicking off the weekend with the 400 freestyle and individual events, we had 28 Watford swimmers tackling these longer races on Saturday. The girls started the racing well with 6 PBs between them and Erin O’Meara bringing home a silver medal, as well as claiming a regional qualifying time. In the boys 400 IM, we saw another 6 PBs with Lewis Shayler, Alex Williams and Devesh Kapoor claiming medals (gold, silver and bronze respectively), with those three along with Ketan Rach qualifying for regionals.

 
Watford's swimmers continued their successful run at this year's County Championships with another staggering weekend's worth of swimming.
Starting off the weekend with the 50m breaststroke and 200m freestyle events, we were well represented with 29 swimmers in the breaststroke and 36 in the freestyle. After some impressive performances in the heats, Enzo Lim, Charlie Taverner, Alex Williams, Ben Green, Ketan Rach, Lewis Shayler, Gemma Nottage, Megan Worley, Harriet Clements, Ellie Williams, Erin O'Meara, Fleur Hines, Emily Sellen and Leanne Carey made the breaststroke finals, bringing home 5 medals between them - gold for Erin and Alex W, and silver for Enzo, Ben and Ellie. There were also 24 PBs swum in the freestyle, with Enzo and Erin achieving regional times, and 4 swimmers claiming medals (Erin and Enzo - silver, Gemma and Ketan - bronze).
