Last day of the County Championships!

Sunday was the last day of the county championships. We were off to a good start with all remembering we were at Cambridge and the clocks had gone forward.

There were only two sessions but some big races including the 400IM & 100 fly for the boys and 200 back and 200 fly for the girls. Yet again all the swimmers performed brilliantly and even after 3 weekends of swimming they were still a happy bunch poolside and a determined bunch in the water. Great to see Livi Pearce not only back in the water but pb’s & medals as well.

Well done to the following swimmers who all competed on Sunday – where we had 33 personal bests, 4 swimmers in a final and across age group & finals a medal haul of 3 gold, 5 silver & 5 bronze:

  • Emily Aston
  • Tom Blenkiron
  • Hannah Daley
  • Will Davies
  • Charlotte Elson
  • Emily Harman
  • Rebecca Jordan
  • Katie Ladds
  • Zoe Leech
  • Amy Leslie
  • Emma Leslie
  • Ava Lessing-Caller
  • Jess Mansfield
  • Ciera Norman
  • Beatrice Pauley
  • Henry Pearce
  • Livi Pearce
  • Chloe Phillips
  • Charlotte Riches
  • Dan Riches
  • Millie Steel
  • Will Steel
  • Skie Wallace

The clubs overall county championship success is as follows:

  • 109 personal bests
  • Swimmers in 14 finals
  • Age group & Finals medal total – 13 gold – 15 silver – 14 bronze

Pretty good going – well done all.

I would like to say a well deserved rest coming our way but tonight we have club championships and during the Easter break it is the last round of the Peterborough mini-meet!

Well done to our newly qualified time keepers! and please if you would like to help in anyway grab one of us poolside and we will happily point you in the right direction.

Lastly a well done to Henry Pearce, Emma Leslie & Will Steel who have all been asked to trial at City of Peterborough swim club. Part of the role of Huntingdon is to develop promising young swimmers and feed them into performance clubs such as Peterborough. This is a partnership that works very well.

Looking forward to finally enjoying the good weather this weekend!
