A record number of Paignton’s younger swimmers qualified for the South West Regional Age-Group Championships this year and competed at Hengrove and Millfield over two weekends. Amy H, Finn, Izzy B, Joe and Nicole all made their their debuts with strong swims across a range of events. Amy B, Ed and Isobel B, Harriette and Luca returned for a second or third time, to compete against the best in the South West. The highlight was Harriette’s silver medal in 50 backstroke and she also made the finals of the 100 back and the 100 free. Most of our swimmers took away a long course PB, plus some great experience, souvenirs and memories. It was impossible to get all the swimmers together for a photo, so apologies to those who are missing!
