Short course NER success

posted 7 Nov 2018, 10:14 by Team Jorvik
This year we had 19 swimmers with qualifying times for the winter Regional SC Championships - again a record number! But due to the competition being staged just two weeks
after the Yorkshire Winter Competition, and most of the swimmers going on the swim camp to Spain in between, David generally advised people not to enter. Thus it was that a small party of just seven swimmers made their way to Sheffield on the first week in November.

Bethan Endicott, in her first North East Regionals after moving from East of England region, qualified for 9 events altogether and won a complete set of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals - in the Age 13 50m Fly, 50m Back and 100m Fly respectively. Keke and Heidi also swam in the Age Group competition for the first time, putting in good performances.

In the Open competition (age 14+), all our competitors were breaststrokers: Emily, James, Aidan R & Aidan F! Between them they swam several PBs, Aidan F managed to achieve a Winter Nationals QT in 200m, and James made the best time improvement with a 3 second PB in 100m.

Again, much to celebrate and we look forward to seeing a bigger squad competing at the Long Course NERs in May.
