Team Jorvik's Winter Yorkshire's campaign got off to an awesome start. The first day of the 9-12 year olds competition saw almost 100% PBs, 3 Top 10 finishes for Will (100 IM, 50 Back, 100 Fly), 6 second PBs for Will, Alex & Zach in each of their 100 IM & 100 Fly swims, a 3.5 second PB for Ellie in 100 Back and a good swim by Joe (who was only just 9) in 50 Breast too. 50 Free was particularly exciting with the three 10 year old boys all in the same heat - Alex just out-touching Zach by 0.02 seconds! Unfortunately, Freddie was unable to participate due to a perforated ear drum.

Swim of the day on Day 2 was an incredible 10 second PB in 100m Breast from Zach, who also knocked 3.5 seconds off his 50m Fly time. More amazing swims also from Alex and Will with great PBs in all of their 4 events, and Will picking up another Finalist hat for his 8th place finish in 100m Breast. Good swimming too from Ellie and Aiden to round off an excellent weekend.

In the 13+ years competition a few weeks later, Aidan R put in an incredible swim to knock 3 seconds off his 100m Breaststroke time, finishing in 13th place in 16& Over, plus a PB in 50m Free too. Awesome PB also for Libby in 50m Free and PBs too for Heidi in 50m Back and Cormac in 50m Breast.

The final day saw more fantastic swimming from Aidan R, with great PBs in 100m Free, 200m IM and 50m Breast - thoroughly deserved results from all the hard work he’s been putting in during training sessions! A 2 second PB from Heidi in 100m Back and a PB from Jess in 50m Back rounded off a good weekend for our small senior squad.
