The team has been promoted to Division 2 of the Nuneaton and District Junior League after winning the Division 3 season ending gala. The club took a team of swimmers aged 9 to 12 to Wolverhampton Central Baths for the final, in which they won 13 of the 51 races on the day. The club also came away with a further 21 top-three finishes and came top of the league overall to earn promotion.
Among the highlights, Gemma Hughes broke the league record for the nine year old girls fly and also won the backstroke. She was also part of the team that won the girls 4X1 freestyle and medley relays. Ben Taylor, 10, won the breaststroke and was on the winning boys 4X1 medley relay side. Grace Shorrock, 11, won the butterfly, while Callum Mitchelmore took individual and medley freestyle gold. Megan Potts’ backstroke win, Lloyd Davies’ freestyle triumph and Tom Rowley’s wins in the backstroke and boys 4X1 medley relay were also among the highlights.
Finally, a special mention for the supporters. Numerous parents and senior team members gave up their day to support the team. Team colours were displayed by all and we were without question the best supported team.
Well done to everyone!!!
