Congratulations to Abbie Barnwell, coming 4th in the Girls 16 years’ Swim England 5k Open Water.
Abbie, together with Chantal Smith, qualified for the Swim England National Open Water Championships by virtue of them winning their respective age group’s 5k events at the East Region’s 2019 Open Water Championships.
In total seven of the Club’s swimmers took part in the East Region event with everyone (Lauren Donnelly, Lauren Hooker, Lyla Howard, Zara Fallon and Dave Wright) winning regional or County medals. Full report here.
Our junior swimmers finished in second place in Division 2 of the 2019 M11 League to gain promotion to Division 1 for 2020.
