Sunday 10th November, John Charles, Leeds
Another great day of competition was had by 19 of our swimmers at Spenborough Swimming Club’s Bonfire Bash meet last Sunday, at John Charles Aquatics Centre in Leeds.
A total of 82 races were swum and personal best times were achieved in 48 of them, an impressive 59% PB rate!
The medal tally was equally impressive with 7 gold, 8 silver and 9 bronze medals being won, plus 10 x 4th place, 6 x 5th place and 3 x 6th place pin badges also being collected over the day – well done to all on their success. Gold medals went to Georgina, Harry N, Tilly x 4 and Jimmy, silvers to Georgina, Tom S, Zara, Freya x 2, Emily, Jimmy and Daniel, bronze medals to Rebecca, Harry N x 2, Georgina, Harry L x 2, Chloe and Jimmy, x 2.
A very special well done has to go to Tilly Hendon who bagged 4 gold medals and a fourth place pin, resulting in her winning the top 9 year old girl award – fabulous swimming Tilly!
Overall Tadcaster Swim Squad came 10th in the club rankings, a very good effort all round.
Thanks very much to Vicky for coaching and supporting our swimmers on the day and to Anne for Team Managing and looking after our children so well throughout the event.
