The first weekend in October saw 18 SASC swimmers compete at the annual Robin Hood meet in Sheffield.  As ever, our swimmers swam really well and raced hard against a variety strong opposition, especially as it is very early on in the season.  All of them recorded various long course(50m) PB times, with a total of over 80 amongst them all over the weekend, furthermore, half of them converting to short course PBs also. Medal-wise, we came away with our biggest haul from the meet to date. Gold came courtesy of a hatrick from Ellie Sykes in the 50m, 100m and 200m Breast events and Will Slawson in the 50m Back and 200m IM.  Additionally, Silvers came from Issy Lester in the 400m Free and Lucy Armitage in the 200m and 400m Free, with the later gaining Bronze in the 50m and 100m Free and 50m Fly, plus Bronze for Will S in the 50m Fly also.

Well done to all 18 on a strong and promising start for this season. Let’s work hard and push on guys!!
