Its a busy time in the swimming calendar with no let up for the next few weeks. A couple of weeks ago a strong but mainly junior group of swimmers competed locally at the COSACSS open meet. Despite their tender ages many swimmers came away with great personal best times and medals for some the first medals of their swimming career. As a club we were placed a commendable 4th place. At the senior end of the club, a group of swimmers competed in Sheffield at both the City of Sheffield Open and the Derventio Excel level 1 open meet. Leek ASC swimmers again performed well against national competition with a number of medals, improved and new regional times being achieved.
In two weeks many of these swimmers will attend the West Midlands Regional Long Course Championships in Coventry and hope to both measure themselves against the best in the region and hope to achieve times which will place them in contention for Nationals places later in the summer. Closer to home, on the 29th April we have the next round of the four towns competition and team sheets for that event will be coming out in the next week.
Im sure you would join me in congratulating all our swimmers for their achievements and within them well in the upcoming events
