Richmond Dales April Fool Meet

posted 10 Apr 2017, 14:30 by Team Jorvik
We were back at John Charles Aquatics Centre again, this time for the Level 1 April Fool meet.  Again our swimmers put in some fantastic performances, achieving a total of 63 PBs and managing to come away with 2 gold, 2 silver and 6 bronze medals.  10 year old Heidi Fothergill achieved a clean sweep of 6 PBs, while 13 year old Amy Bettles continued her fine run of form with another 5 out of 5 excellent PB swims. Notably large PBs came in the longer events from Joe Callin (400 IM, 200 Free), Laura Bettles (200 Breast), Amy Bettles (200 Breast, 200 Free, 400 Free), Heidi Fothergill (200 Back, 200 Free), Joe Senior (400 IM), Abby Dennis (200 IM), Aidan Fothergill (200 IM) and Eve Clark (200 Free).  It was pleasing to see Maximus Mawle and Emily Hill returning to form, both swimming PBs and winning bronze medals.  Special mentions to Joe Senior and Rhiannon Wood for achieving NER times in 400 IM and 50m Fly respectively, and Fay Clark for a Yorkshire qualifying time in 50m Back. With medals awarded only to the top 3, Joe Callin could be considered the unluckiest swimmer with a total of five 4th placed swims!
