Most of our Competitive Squad, plus a few others, had an enjoyable weekend at the Richmond Dales April Fool Meet.  Many of the swimmers took the opportunity to try some of the longer events for the first time and others achieved some big PBs in events they hadn’t swum for a few months, showing just how much they are improving all the time.

Our youngest swimmers put in awesome performances: Aiden S achieving good PBs in all his 4 races and winning two bronze medals; while Alex T swam 6 PBs, won a silver and 3 bronze medals and gained qualifying times for the Winter Yorkshire Competition in 4 events.  Freddie was also on great form and his efforts earned him 2 bronze medals and a Yorkshire QT.  And Alex M showed that continuing to train hard really does reap rewards, with PBs in all 7 of his events earning himself 2 golds and a bronze medal.  A good PB for Ben in 200m IM saw him take gold too.

For the girls, Robyn, Ellie, Libby, Lilly and Scarlett all put in several great PB swims, with Ellie winning a bronze medal and achieving a Yorkshire QT.  Our older girls, Jess B and Laura, though not quite on their best form on the day, came away with a silver and a gold, and 2 gold medals respectively.

Well done team!
