The end of February only means one thing…the County Championships 2018 is at an end. And what a successful one we had! With 39 swimmers gaining qualifying times for the meet. From those swims: pb’s, regional times, skins qualification and county champions were achieved!
With some extremely strong swims from all our competitors, a total of 188 pb’s, 15 gold medals, 16 silver medals and 22 bronze medals. As a result of so many incredible individual swims, Newmarket produced 2 County Champions. Further success came from swimmers either winning their age group or coming in the top 3, in the county. Overall Newmarket came 4th in the Championships which is a fantastic achievement.
The final day of counties saw the skins and relays take place. The skins event is always very exciting and even more so as we had Lauren Watt competing in it this year. Lauren did incredibly well finishing in 5th place. Our relay teams had a fantastic battle for their placings, with 3 teams gaining medals, 2 silver and 1 bronze. Overall Newmarket came 5th in the relays.
Many congratulations also go to the swimmers that gained new regional qualifying times over the championships.
