Jorvik Viking Sprints June 2018

posted 29 Jun 2018, 13:00 by Team Jorvik
With great anticipation, we looked forward to the best gala of the year - our very own Viking Sprints meet.  As always, it didn't disappoint.  Our awesome team of parent volunteers worked together as one big happy, friendly, efficient team and we all left at the end of the day felling justifiably proud of ourselves, if in need of a glass of wine or two!

On the swimming front, the kids were just as awesome - with countless PBs, medals and an incredible number of new Yorkshire qualifying times. Two of our swimmers won Top Boy awards: 9 year old Alex Tew and Zak Moorcroft in the 15+ age group; and we even finished as the 3rd highest team on total points scored.

With an amazing 22 of our swimmers achieving a full set of PBs, there were too many good performances to list individually. But special mention must go to two of our youngest swimmers: 8 year old Alice Sturgeon, who won an A grade silver medal for 50m Backstroke in the 9 year olds age group and also achieved a Yorkshire qualifying time; and Alex Tew, 9, who swam a full set of 5 Yorkshire Qualifying times and went home jangling with 3 gold and 2 silver medals.

Other swimmers gaining new Yorkshire QTs were: Ellie (100 IM), Libby (50 Back), Emma P-D (50 Fly, 50 Breast, 50 Back), Jess B (50 Fly), Joan (50 Fly, 50 Breast), Freddie (50 Back, 50 Free), Jake (50 Fly)
