A big "well done" for the MKJL Round 1 Team!!!
Saturday we (32 swimmers, 4 coaches and a couple of parents) travelled to Staines to compete in the first round of the Milton Keynes Junior League. We faced some strong competition, coming up against Windsor, Hillingdon B, Witney & District, Staines A and Teddington and managed to secure 4th place just 1 point behind the 3rd placed Windsor.
The final scores were:
Our winners were:
Girls 11/U Freestyle Relay Team (Sadie Lucas,Olivia Lee, Emily Sharpe & Daniella Hoyland),
Shanil Vora - 10 yr old 50m breaststroke,
Sadie Lucas - 11 yr 50m backstroke,
Haniya Glazebrook - 9 yr old 25m breaststroke,
Maddie Rae - 9 yr old 25m backstroke,
Harry Gibbs - 9 yr 25m butterfly,
Girls 11/U Medley Relay Team (Sadie Lucas, Holly Henderson, Daniella Hoyland & Emily Sharpe).
Our team created a loud atmosphere in the very spaceless poolside and face painting was going on throughout the whole gala led by Emily & Izzy.
I hope you are all aware that this weekend and over the next 2 weekends, the South East regional championships are taking place. If you are not aware of the regional championships, this is the next step up the competitive ladder from the counties and 1 step below the Nationals. This year we have had the highest number of swimmers qualify for regionals (12) from Chalfont that we have ever had. A fantastic achievement.
This weekend has been the turn of the younger swimmers and I'm pleased to say they have performed to a high standard.
So far the we have had :
James McClenn: 1 silver 50 back; 1 bronze 100 back
10 finals - James McClenn (200 back-6th; 50 free-8th; 200 free-8th) Sam Clark (200 IM-6th; 50 back-5th; 200 back-4th; 100 back-4th) Charley Huggett (50 fly-6th)
Not to mention strong long course PB's from Hugo Lane (50 back) and Zebina George (100 breast; 200 breast; 100 back)
The majority of all these swims have beaten the current club long course records. Well done all.
With such high standards set this weekend, I'm looking forward to see how the next couple of weekends go for Chalfont Otters swimmers.
A Very Happy Head Coach
