We had 17 qualifiers for the Yorkshire Winter Competition - 6 in the 13 years+ weekend in Leeds and the others competed 2 weeks later in Sheffield.
Stand out swim of the first weekend came from Freddie, knocking an amazing 6 seconds off his 100m Fly time! Heidi managed to improve her 100 Back PB by almost 2 seconds, went sub-30 in 50 Free for the first time and narrowly missed out on an NER QT with her 50m Back PB swim. Libby and Lewis achieved PBs in each of their swims. Alex swam a solid race to finish in 12th place in 50m Breast and achieved a PB in 100m Breast. Unfortunately Elizabeth had to withdraw due to a week of illness.
This was followed by some great swimming from the 9-12 year olds in Sheffield. Lots of PBs, new NER QTs for Alex, Millie and Joe, and several “Finalist” hats for top 10 finishes: Dan 7th in 100 Free, 9th in 50 Free; Alex 4th in 200 IM & 400 IM, 5th in 100 Back & 100 Free, 6th in 100 Fly, 8th 50 Fly, 9th 50 Back; Sam 4th in 50 fly, 5th in 50 Back, 100 Back & 100 Fly, 6th in 50 Free, 100 Free & 100 IM; Evelyn 9th in 100 Breast.
