A team of nine Master and Senior swimmers from Newmarket & District SC competed in the Valentines Masters Meet at Sudbury incorporating the Suffolk County Masters & Seniors Championships 2017. The team swam fantastically well and finished as Top Visting club (for a second year running) on 264 points, a full 76 points ahead of both Colchester and Stowmarket who were joint second. On top of this they came away with 46 Meet medals between them. However, the separate competition between members of Suffolk swimming clubs resulted in a fantastic haul of 33 Gold, 14 Silver and 7 Bronze County Championship medals. The individual results were Sarah Lingard and Reuben Smith leading the way with 6 Gold’s each. Leslie Broussard and Jane Smith gained 5 Gold and 2 Silver medals each and a personal best for Leslie. Alice Theobald 3 Gold, 2 Silver, 1 Bronze and 4PBs, Peter Winter 3G and 2S, Alex Millard 2G, 3S, 4B and 3 PBs, Sophie Bellwood 2G, 2S and 2B and finally, a great first competition for newcomer to the team, Alasdair Craighead with 2G, 1S and 3PBs. Thanks must go to Chris Bellwood and Paul Hood for officiating at the event and to our supporters.
