SHROPSHIRE COUNTY AGE GROUP CHAMPIONSHIPS, WOLVERHAMPTON, FEBRUARY 2016

The annual County Age Group Champs took place over 2 weekends back in February at Wolverhampton Central Baths and saw the cream of Shropshire swimmers battle it out for final places and medals. With a team in excess of 40, our swimmers got stuck in and raced tough and produced a strong display across all age groups over the 4 days. With the new format of heats and finals, it made for a busy and fast paced competition, keeping several swimmers busy with many swims!!

Over the whole competition, SASC had a large PB rate, in excess of 100 new best time set, with 63 final appearances. A total of 45 medals, 13 being Gold coming courtesy of Porsha Jones, Ffion Butler, Tom Piggott, Reilly Shanahan and Rob Cowley. Also there were 44 Regional Qualifying times achieved, including the first ever for Melissa Pugh, and there were also more than 5 first time county qualifiers competing in the team.

Well done to all.
