Weekend Water Warriors (March 23rd & 24th)
Wow, what a fantastic weekend for our Club!!
Crusader League: To get the ball rolling, on Saturday evening, a squad including many of our younger swimmers, came 1st in the second round event staged at the Market Drayton Pool.
Staffordshire County Relays: On Sunday our swimmers dominated with many outstanding performances including:-
- Senior men winning the 200m medley relay in a Staffordshire Championships record
- Senior ladies 3rd in the 200m medley relay
- Senior ladies/ men won the 300m free relay
- Senior men winning the 200m free relay in a new Staffordshire Championships record
- Senior ladies winning the 200m free relay
Staffordshire Masters: Not to be outdone by the ‘youngsters’, our Secretary Mark Gunning competed in the Staffordshire Masters event on Saturday evening. Mark was obviously on fine form, winning 8 medals in total, including 3 golds. Whilst Mark’s performance shows that swimming is a sport that can be a companion throughout your life, it also demonstrates that if you want to win and keep on winning, regardless of age, you have to focus and train hard.
and finally… none of this would be possible without the continued support of all the parents, poolside helpers and of course our wonderful coaching team. Many thanks to you all.
