This past weekend saw our Watford swimmers take part in the East region winter championships at Norwich. This would normally be a short course meet and a bit later in the season, but due to the commonwealth games trials, it was turned into a long course meet . This is not the same as the summer regionals, there is only 1 age group. So every swimmer is competing against each other (I.e 13yrs v 21yr olds)
We had 12 swimmers competing over a wide range of events over the 3 days.
Ethan Sutton started us off on Friday evening with the 1500fc. Ethan swam a big pb taking him from 29th seed to 17th, plus taking an age group club record.
Over the rest of the weekend, we had swimmers competing in events 50fly up to 400 im and everything in between.
Erin swam a big pb in the 200im which saw her qualify for the final in 8th place. In the final she stepped up and finished a very impressive 7th. Erin also swam in a number of other races over the weekend, she swam really well and produced some good pb's.
Sophie, Francesca, Madeleine and Emily also swam strong races in which they all produced good times and improved on their entry rankings.
The sprint boys (Ashley, Harrison and Marcus), competed over 50m and 100m in their best strokes. What was pleasing to see, by these three swimmers was how strong they finished their races. Marcus and Harrison also swam in the 200im, in which they both swam well and showed some impressive race skills.
Devesh, Ketan and Lewis competed in the middle distance races (200m, 400m). Devesh swam a big pb in the 400im and 50fly plus a strong 200fly. Again, he improved on his entry rankings. Ketan (200bk) and Lewis (200br) both went out strong. Ketan improved his entry ranking and finished bang on his pb. Lewis led his race from the start and produced a big pb.
Over all, I was very happy with how our swimmers did at this meet (considering the timing of the meet) and I look forward to a great arena league next weekend and our end of year meets- finishing 2017 on a high.
