SLCSC End of Season Swim

On 8th/9th July South Lincs Competitive Swimming Club, from Spalding, went to Corby International pool, for Northampton S.C. 2017 Summer Festival Open Meet. This event was to provide our team of 14 swimmers a chance to compete at a long course event before the end of the season. With 14 other clubs attending it was an undeniably tough event.

The opening race saw Esther Skells (13) win her first heat, the 200m backstroke. She then went on to get 6 personal best (PB) times. With Daisy Rummerys (13) beautiful backstroke technique she came 7th in 2 events, 200m & 50m. For 3 swimmers, Beatrice Finch (11), Nitesh Anbazhagen (11) and Oliver Sorrell (10) it was their first L.C. meet. Sorrell proudly went on to gain four 5th place medals.

With an excellent performance, Emma Croker (12) won gold, beating 34 girls in the 50m free and silver in 50m back. Luke Blanchard (16) achieved 12 PB’s and got gold for 100m breast, Colin O’Reilly (18) getting the silver. Blanchard also won silver for 200m breast. Mollie Briggs (12) strong swim gained her 4th place in 100m fly.

Ellisha Cookson (13), Dusty Saines (13), Aurinija Maliauskaite (13), Andre Ubaviciute (13) and Edward Skells all achieved PB’s. Callum Lawson, head coach, commented

“The swimmers delivered a great set of results over the weekend and what pleased me the most was that many of the swimmers are now delivering the skills that we have been working on all season. When these skills are delivered swimmers can race faster and more relaxed – it’s fantastic seeing this put into the pressure of a racing environment.

This was a nice, friendly close to our competitive season and I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all swimmers, parents, team managers, coaches and officials that have helped the swimmers all through the season.”

Special mention goes to the officials of the club, Reshma Cookson, Neil Walker, Caroline Sorrell, Clyde Finch and Sam Blanchard, as without their support events like this cannot go ahead.
