Rockets and Sparklers make a bang for Newmarket Swimming Club

It has been a busy few weeks for the junior swimmers of Newmarket Swimming Club culminating in the Dettori Cup novice event on Saturday 8 November. Newmarket fielded two young teams, the Rockets and the Sparklers who between them made sure Bonfire celebrations ended with a big bang. There were a total of 18 Personal Best times (PBs) for the Sparklers team and a County Time for Jack Saunders in the 50m Breaststroke whilst the Rockets gained 22 PBs and a County Time for Rhys Clements in the 50m Butterfly. The Rockets and Sparklers swam strongly to finish 3rd and joint 5th overall against impressive opposition from two teams from West Suffolk, Witham and Halstead In recent weeks there has been further success for the juniors including 3 Gold medals for Joseph Bavey at the Big Bang Meet held in Norwich on 1 & 2 November. A team from the club also attended the Basher Gala in Norwich on 25 October finishing 6th out of 8th teams competing but providing many with the first chance to swim in a Long Course 50m pool. At the Bishops Stortford Open held over 18-19 October there were further impressive medalling performances for the club from Maeve Pooley 5 Gold & 1 Silver, Ignacio Larghero 1 Gold, 4 Silver & 1 Bronze, Joseph Bavey 4 Gold, Evan Thomas-Mansfield 2 Gold & 1 Silver, Jake Thomas Mansfield (first club Cambridge) 1 Gold & 1 Silver, Safi Axon-Coates 1 Bronze & 1 Silver, Ciara Gill-Ryan 3 Bronze and Charlie Davis 1 Bronze. Overall a busy but successful period.
