Two new club records were set at the County Championships this weekend. Stephen Wenban did 5.02.64 in the 400m Freestyle and Adam Taylor did 5.09.09 in the 400m IM - Well done
1st place what a great result. Thank you to all the swimmers who stepped in to replace those swimmers that were poorly and that was quite a few of you. Unfortunately this meant that you had alot of swims during the evening but looking at the results the hard training is paying off as your times were very consistent, so really well done. We achieved 17 individual PB's which is fantastic. We came away with 12 individual wins Luke Newton achieving a double in the 15/u 50m Fly and 15/u 100m back and 8 relay 1st places which are always great to win. We also had 13 2nd places with some really close finishes. Well done again everyone and thanks to everyone that helped on poolside.
Marnie Fedorowych, Louisa Wallace, Jacqueline Farrow, Howard Farrow - Marnie made PBs in 50 Back and 50 Free, Louisa took home Silver for 100 Back and a PB in her 50 Back gave her another silver, Jacqueline took Silver in 50 breast, 200 breast and 100 fly
Well done again everyone we came 2nd overall which is another great result. We were in a very difficult lane and sometimes couldnt hear the starter so to come away with 15 Individual PB's (PB's can also be obtained from the first leg of the relay) was fantastic. We also achieved 6 individual wins and they came from Maisie Green 11/u 50m Back, Michael Wenban 11/u 50m Fly, Matthew Collins 15/u 100m Brst, Georgina Lockwood Open 100m Free, Dan Johnson Open 100m Back and Joel Smith Open 100m Fly. We also achieved a first in the 15/u Medley Relay Tom Robinson, Matthew Collins, Stephen Wenban and Tiarnan Nelis. We also achieved 14 2nd places, so well done again everyone and thanks to everyone that helped on poolside.
What a fantastic evening, I think you would all agree. To come 2nd was a great achievement. The past few years we have come close but always been 3rd so to bring the Runners Up trohpy back to Kettering is brilliant. It was great to see all the team at the shallow end cheering on each other, what a great start to our Diddy season. It was good to see our Junior Captains (Dominic Whalley, Ryan Napier, Sarah Kings and Maisie Green) warming the swimmers up at the start and in good voice during the gala setting an excellent example to the younger swimmers.
We had three swimmers competing for the very first time for Kettering in a gala George Wykes, Thomas Wiggins and Johnathan Arnold, well done to them for producing some excellent swims. We came away with 11 2nd places, 13 3rd places, zero disqualifications and 13 individual PB's (not including relay splits).
Well done to Maisie Green who achieved 2 2nd places in her individuals 10yrs 50m fly and 10yrs 50m back, also well done to the boys 9yrs relay team who came 2nd in bothe their relays (Jamie Vaughan, Johnathan Arnold, George Wykes and Thomas Wiggins) and also well done to our boys 11yrs who also achieved 2 2nd places in thier relays (Adam Roberts, Ryan Napier, Michael Wenban, Dominic Whalley).
