This 1st May bank holiday weekend saw the Senior section of this year's Regional Championships at Luton. Watford had 9 individual swimmers qualify, plus 2 relay teams.

 

Day 1


Saturday started with the girls 200m fly in which Ceri Heard swam a long course PB. Up next were Harrison and Ashley in the 100m fly. Ashley swam a PB and Harrison qualified for the final, where he came 5th in a new PB.

Fiona was up next in the 50m Free and swam a very strong race breaking 30 seconds long course for the 1st time. Leanne swam a very solid 28 sec for her 50m Freestyle. These races were followed by both Harrison and Marcus in the 50m Backstroke, Marcus edged out Harrison in the battle of the Watford boy's with both boys swimming a fantastic 30.4/5sec race. Then it was time for the girls 200m Breaststroke where Emily and Lucy both competed well. Marcus carried on the breaststroke theme and swam a very strong 100m  time. For me this was one of the races of the weekend with Marcus executing some great races tactics.

After a little break we had Harrison back in the pool competing in the 400m I.M. Again he swam well setting a new long course PB. Emily finished off her day with the 50m Breast with another good time. Tying up Day 1 we had the 14-16yrs boys medley relay team. The team of Harrison (bk) , Marcus (br) , Dev (fly) and Ethan (fr) swam a good strong race which placed them in the Top 10 in the East Region. All the boys swam well and showed great team spirt.

 

Day 2

Harrison carried on from where he left off the night before with butterfly, but this time over the longer distance -200m. He swam a good race which put him into the evenings final. Lucy and Emily both competed in the 100 Breaststroke where they both swam good races with excellent turn skills. Marcus again swam a long course PB in the 50m Breast with a very strong finish. Leanne swam bang on her PB in the 100m Free, a good sign for the up and coming relay. Harrison had two more races left today; 50m Free, which he swam just off his PB and the 400m Free, again just off his PB. Emily swam her longest race of the meet in the 400m IM where she did not disappoint and produced a strong race throughout.
The older girls secured a top 4 place in the 4x100m medley team. Sophie led off with the backstroke leg and swam a long course PB. Handing over to Emily on the Breaststroke leg she swam  her fastest time of the weekend. Ceri swam a strong fly leg and set it up for Leanne on the Freestyle in which she swam a big long course PB. Harrison swam a solid 200m fly final and came in a very respectable 7th place.

 

Day 3

 

The energy levels of the swimmers had a boost with the arrival of Louis after his exploits in Sheffield the previous few days! Louis did not waste anytime and picked up 3 golds in the 200mi IM, 100m Backstroke and the 200m Free. Both Harrison and Sophie swam in the 200m IM races and picked up  top 8 places. Harrison and Marcus went on and swam long course PB's in the 100m Back. Leanne swam a very well paced 200m Free and picked up another long course PB.

The last races of the session saw Ceri, Ashley and Harrison compete in the 50m fly. Ceri swam on her PB, Ashley set a long course PB and Harrison just missed his.

The older swimmers set a good standard in these Regionals, so the pressure is on the younger ones later in the month!
