Post date: 03-Jul-2016 19:56:00

A long but certainly worthwhile day spent at Ponds Forge at the Barnsley Summer Sizzler. The coaching team and team managers had 21 swimmers to look after and the swimmers were inspirational as usual.

This was a level 3 meet and there were a great deal of swimmers from the big clubs there looking for Yorkshire and NER times; this means that placings were at a premium but we were really hunting wabbits ...... I mean personal bests.

The attached sheet shows the improvements since entries were made - a detailed sheet of personal bests will be added once the times have been added to the club's database.

In total there were 61 personal bests out of 90 swims (a 68% conversion rate) with notable performances from Freya Brooke, Seth Brooke, Lottie McCay, Ryan Durose and Eve Horseman who achieved 100% personal bests as well as Millie Colbear, Jack Durose, Eleanor Lakin, Leah Hague, Callum Broadhead, Seth Brooke, Dzulija Karnevska and Ben Wilson who won medals at this high level event.

Well to all the swimmers you made the club look very strong in this Yorkshire wide event. Also many thanks to Julie, Rachel, James, Alison as well as Jacob for supporting the kids at this event.
