Nearly 30 of our swimmers took part in the Dartmoor Junior Sprint Meet at the beginning of March. The majority of our swimmers were just 8-10 years old, some swimming outside of our own club for the very first time. Supported by a handful of our more experienced competitors, everyone stepped up to the mark in a great atmosphere with all the swimmers excited to race and cheer each other on.
It was a very successful meet, allowing Coach Kev to get a good view of where many of our swimmers are in terms of their racing ability and technique.
Altogether there were too many PBs to mention, plus a huge haul of 29 medals. Our medallists were: Robi Morris – 1 silver and 4 bronze, Elijah Apps – 5 gold, Phoebe Wills – 1 silver, 1 bronze, Kizzy Kirkwood – 1 bronze, Daisy Edwards – 1 gold, Jasmine O’Flaherty – 1 silver, Isabella Ashford – 1 gold, 3 silvers, Izzy Dover – 3 bronze, Morgan Ashford – 1 silver, 4 bronze, Adam Glew – 1 silver, Ethan Crocker – 1 bronze.
Special congratulations to Elijah and Isabella who respectively won top boy and top girl awards in their age groups.
