23 of our swimmers competed at the Santa B/C Meet in Beverley, which was our last gala of the year. It was a very successful meet for the whole squad; between them they brought home a total of 23 Gold Medals (15 B grade and 8 C grade), 18 Silver medals, 8 Bronze medals and 8 Speeding tickets.

Massive congratulations to Fay Clark and Laura Bettles who both achieved their first ever Yorkshire qualifying times: Fay 50m back and Laura 50m breast. Aidan also achieved a new Yorkshire qualifying time in 100m fly.

Several of the team members swam PBs in all their events: Ben (2), Laura (6), Mia (3), Aidan (3), Maximus (4) and Libby (5).  There were some massive PB swims during the day (in a hurry to see Santa?!): Jess 200mIM (12s pb), Ben 100m back (9s pb), Eve 100m free (10s pb), Maximus 200mIM (11s pb) and Dalton 50m fly (13s pb)

Lots of the swimmers competed in some events for the first time and they all did amazingly well. Joe Dennis swam two solid races at his first ever gala. Our newcomers Ben, Libby and Cormac, who were swimming for Team Jorvik for the first time, all came away with Gold Medals and Libby won the 10 year old Top Girl trophy – well done!

Overall Team Jorvik were the 3rd placed team (only narrowly missing out on second place) - a fantastic joint achievement by everyone!!
