17 Shrewsbury swimmers took part in the City of Leicester Age Group meet at Braunstone Leisure Centre. Across the 3 day meet they recorded over 50 PB times, most of which were only set 5 weeks previously at Counties! Leading the way were the club captains. Max D set PBs in 7 out of his 8 events and gained his first Midland Youth QTs in the 50m and 100m Free and made the final of both events, gaining silver in the 50m Free. Claire B, despite being hampered by an injury, set PBs in her favoured 50m and 100m Free, making the final in both and narrowly missed her 2nd MDQT in the 100. Kate G set sizeable new best times in 5 out of her 6 events, made the final in the 100 Breast and gained her first ever MDQT in the same event.
Other stand-out performances amongst the awesome weekend meet for the team came from Lucy Fairbanks, who got 3 new MDQT’s from 3 events while making the 100 back final and having an amazing race in the 400m Free. Sophia Motala-Evans, who narrowly missed her first ever Midland time in both the 100 Free and 200 Back on Saturday, smashed her 100m Back time on Sunday to gain her 1st MDQT. Finally, Will Carter paced his 200m Free race to perfection to drop another 4sec PB and gain his first MDQT and Lucy A made the 100 Free and 100 Fly finals. Others racing and setting best times were Aron, Jodie, Tasha, Grace S, Megan, Sophie, Michael, Ed, Lolly and Woody.
Awesome performance guys, great job!!!
