Over the last few weekends many of our swimmers have been competing in the Staffordshire ASA County Championships at Riverside Leisure Centre in Stafford. 20 swimmers competed in the full range of events and between them achieved 86 new personal best times. The club’s swimmers chalked up 4 third placings, 16 second places and 10 age group or open wins. Those who achieved age group wins spanned the age groups from Mandy Chen in the 11 and under age group who triumphed in the 100m and 200m butterfly to open swimmer Holly Shepherd who won the 100m and 200m backstroke and 200m Individual Medley, setting two new championship medals in the process. Other age group first places went to Harry Lancaster (200m breast, 200m backstroke and 400m Individual medley); Callum Rushan (1500m freestyle) and Eden Schiller (800m freestyle). Many of these swimmers will now be preparing for both regional and National Championships later in the year and most are preparing to compete for the club in this weekends Crusader league.
