Shropshire County Age Groups 2013 – Coach’s Report

This year’s County Championships saw a team of 40 SASC swimmers descend on Wolverhampton Central Baths to mix it with the best that the other teams from Shropshire had to offer.  Over the 2 weekends of the competition, amidst an excellent team atmosphere, our swimmers excelled across all events.  Collecting in excess of 150 PB times between them, they tore up the Central Baths pool with real intent and commitment and got their just rewards for their hard training.   Competitions stats are as follows:

                        28 Gold, 30 Silver and 18 Bronze Medals

                        39 Midland Qualifying times

                        3 New County Records

                        Top 10 year old Girl: Lucy Armitage

All these are a vast improvement on the 2012 Championships, showing how far the swimmers have come in 12 months.  The 28 Gold Medals meant we have 9 different County Champions. Leading the way was Lucy A with 7 Golds along with New Records in the 200 Back and 400 IM, with the other Record Breaker being Stan in the 50 Breast on his way to 3 Golds.  Other Champions were Issy L, Will S, Tom S, Claire B, Ellie S, Ffion B and Grace M.  The team overall really did excel over all 4 days and every single swimmer did the club proud.  Massive well done to each and every one of you and here’s to the rest of a successful season!
