Devon Development Galas
By Emily Hadley: “As team manager I can say that all the children who attended the developments were fantastic ambassadors for the club. Their behaviour was exemplary from start to finish with everyone displaying great sportsmanship, impeccable manners and good support to their team mates.
There were many excellent PBs achieved across the two weekends and a good smattering of gold, silver and bronze medals. (Full results are on meet mobile and will also be available via: http://www.devonswimming.org.uk/?page_id=126 .) Alex had an awesome meet and I think was the highest scoring swimmer overall with Angus not far behind, thanks to a first place in the 1500. There were massive PBs for Harry and Sam, including in the 200IM, along with Flo in the 100 fly and Lara swam in the 200 breastroke.
The Skins events were particularly exciting, with Harry, Sam and Alex all making it through. Sam did brilliantly in the upper age group, coming 4th, despite being unlucky with the chosen strokes! Harry and Alex were the final two in the lower age group with Harry being victorious in the end.
