Club Champs 2017 - session 4
Written by Andrew Farrow   
Wednesday, 28 June 2017 06:56
The fourth session of this year's Club Championships comprised arguably the toughest indoor race on the books - the 400 IM.  45 swimmers took part with Alice Fender setting a new Open Club record and Jo Lee-Pearce and Mattias Morse setting new age group records.  There was some excellent racing with the longer distance really emphasising the relative strengths in strokes between swimmers. 

Perhaps not surprisingly for a race swum so infrequently there were lots of significant personal bests, notably a 43 second improvement by Freya Beresford, 30 seconds by Matthie Perrault, 24 seconds by Elliott Davies, 21 seconds by Ashley Coombs, 19 seconds by Dylan Kennell, 18 seconds by Millie Anderton and 15 seconds by Millie Herbert, Mabel Coldwell, Mattias Morse and Lewis Clark.  Particular mention should also be made of those who swam the event for the first time - Maisie Adams, Kate Cresswell, Freya Goad, Joel Green, Freya McDonagh, Henry Newbury-Kemp, Georgie Pearce, Rebecca Sewell and Nathan Whiting.

Congratulations to Hemel Masters who with six of their number swimming at British Masters still managed to finish second in this year's 2017 Herts Masters.  No fewer than nine Club records were set by Jo Lee Pearce (50 breast and 100 IM), Hilary Coulson (50 free, 50 back and 100 IM), Roz Garratt (50 free and 50 breast), Kevin McKenna (100 IM) and Mark Ayres (50 breast).  And the curry afterwards was every bit as succesful as the swimming!

Twenty-three Hemel swimmers attended the Terry Davies Alternative Nationals at a baking Watford Woodside over the weekend.  Freya Beresford had an outstanding meet with 3 golds, 2 silvers and a bronze with PB's in all six of her events.  There were also golds for Sam Gaines, who set a new age group record in the 50 fly, and Henry Newbury-Kemp alongside 15 second and third places.

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the first of the seven sessions of this year's Club Championships last night, but in particular to the 13 swimmers entering this distance event for the first time.  The fastest time was set by Jack Spence, but interestingly given this year's new "Championship Awards" the most FINA points were achieved by Alice Fender who also set a new Club Open Record.  Age Group records were set by Rebecca Sewell (breaking a record that was last set so long ago we only know that it was sometime before 2006!), Sam Gaines and Jo Lee-Pearce.
Congratulations Vic Coombs - J2S

Congratulations to Vic Coombs who braved the searing heat of Watford's Woodside pool over the weekend despite not having a swimmer at the competition to qualify as a Judge Level 2 - Starter.  That means that he's completed a minimum 20 hours post qualification experience as a Judge Level 2 - and I happen to know that in reality he's done many, many hours more - and is now officially able to start races.  With Club Champs about to start it's a timely reminder that without parents like Vic training up as officials we wouldn't be able to run these competitions.

A busy weekend for Hemel's Masters and Senior swimmers got underway in Aberdeen at the British Masters & Senior Age Group Champs.  The Hemel team of Jack Christie, Jack Spence, Kira Doyle, Hannah Bennett, Kyle Holmes and Josh Gaines hoovered up medals with Hannah and Jack (S) winning golds in their individual 50 back and 200 back respectively alongside relay golds for the mixed 4 x 100 free and mixed 4 x 200 free quartets.  Hannah also set 4 Club age group records - one in an event, the 1500 free, that we haven't recognised for ladies before and which was also an East Region record! 2017-06-18 15.22.23

Everybody swam really well and worked their hardest in the second round of the Peanuts League. There was great team spirit and everybody should be proud of their performance.

A special mention to Arthur Coldwell and Caitlin Walters who were this round's Swimmers of the Gala, to Millie Herbert and Natalie Krezel who won their individual races and the girls u12 free relay team and girls u13 medley team who won their relay events which along with 25 second and third places helped secure us third overall.

Milton Keynes League - round 1

The first round of Milton Keynes Junior League kicked off with a home match. We were head to head with some tough opposition and were jostling for position throughout the evening, eventually finishing 5th.  Swimmers of the evening were Ernie Coldwell for some good butterfly & breaststroke racing, and Mila Brooke mk-league rd1 2017 2
for breaking two club records in the 25 free and 25 fly, her enthusiasm and good butterfly, but there were lots of stand out swims throughout evening.
