Last night saw the climax of the Wiltshire ASA Moonraker Winter League, with the A Team travelling to Trowbridge for the B Final. It had been a long and hard qualifying season, starting off with a difficult trip to Salisbury, and based on the results to date Corsham were seeded third in Lane 2. Some gaps in the team caused by late injuries had meant that there would be a lot of swims for the team, always challenging against 5 other clubs out to win the trophy.
Wednesday March 26th is a fun Water Polo evening starting at 7:30pm and all length swimmers (TAGS, Juniors, Upper Juniors and Seniors) are invited. Entry is by card and the event is organised by our own AquaForce Young Volunteers.
Come along and have some fun!!!
County Championships - BagCat
Congratulations to all our BagCat swimmers whose event finished last weekend. Again there were lots of great PB's and a silver for Leo Feasby in the 50m Back. Well done to Mark Edmundson, Alice Chadwick and Leo Feasby who all finished in the top 10 overall for their age groups.
County Championships - Youth
Congratulations to all those who competed in this event. There were lots of great PB's and silvers for Nikki Harris (50m Free), Megan Trollope (50m Back) and Craig Harris (200m Fly) and bronzes for Lauren Jones (200m Breast), Megan Trollope (100m and 200m Back) and Craig Harris (200m IM).
Well done to everyone who took part in the One Length Gala tonight. It was great to see such a good turnout, and especially so many TAGS swimmers.
Times are posted here.
Recently, there has been an increase in swimming numbers at our masters sessions and it was nice to see that transfer into increased numbers at the first round of the Wiltshire Masters at Trowbridge last night. As usual, the events on offer were 50 back, 100 fly, 25 breast and 100 free - with a splattering of relays too. And, as usual, you don't have to swim all the events (I mean, come on, there's a 100 fly in there!)
County Long Distance 1st February
Congratulations to Megan Trollope, Alice Chadwick and Jolie Partington who swam in the 800m and Mark Edmundson who swam in the 1500m. They all produced great swims in this tough event at Bath University, Megan taking silver in the 17/18 year age group.
County Sprints 2nd February
Well done to all 15 swimmers who took part in this event for many of whom it was their first taste of County competition. Isabel Slateford won gold in the 9 year old Fly, Leo Feasby won gold in the 10 year old Back and Alice Chadwick won silver in the 11 year old Fly.
The results and times from the club time trials are in the attached spreadsheet. Some very good swims and new County qualifying times - well done!
Many congratulations to Nikki Harris who has been awarded the Wilts County ASA Girl Swimmer of the Year 2013. So very well deserved.
Her achievements at County and National Level in 2013 are:
3 British Long Course Records set in Plymouth. 50 free, 100 free and 50 back. 3 Golds too.
3 Golds at Short Course championships in Sheffield in 50 free, 100 free and 100 back
Wiltshire County Youth
Gold in the 100m Freestyle 19+, competing against swimmers many years younger.
7 events, 7 Gold Medals, 7 Records – a perfect achievement
