The weekend of the 16th/17th June, saw 24 Newmarket swimmers attended the Suffolk Development Meet at Crown Pools in Ipswich. The 24 swimmers took part in individual races during the meet and had to reach qualifying times to enter.
With the meet starting at early afternoon on Saturday, the swimmers finished the first day with 13 personal best times, 5 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 3 bronze medals. After a full day of competing, the swimmers finished day 2 with 23 personal best times, 11 gold medals, 2 silver medals and 9 bronze medals.
Which means in total 36 personal best times, 16 gold medals, 6 silver medals and 12 bronze medals were won! The team came 8th out of 13 clubs the attended the meet, with such a high standard of swimming at the meet, this is a fantastic achievement!
Thank you to our officials that took time out of their weekend to officiate at the meet and Tess and Sophie for helping on poolside.
Well done everyone!
