Essex Regional Championships – May 2018
Times achieved at the recent Age Group Championships means that Seals has four swimmers who are able to take part in this year’s Regionals – Ciara McAuley, George Rogers, Elliot Skingley and Isla Stringer. The sessions are again being held over the two Bank Holiday weekends in May.
ASA East Region Championships – 28th to 30th May 2016
The ASA East Region Championships were held at Luton Sporting Village. This event is only open to swimmers who achieved qualifying times during the past year, and clubs from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk were represented. This is a Long Course (LC) event, swum in a 50 metre pool.
Our two swimmers – Ollie Rogers and Claire Stockton – took part in sessions over the three days. Ollie competed in Backstroke, Breaststroke and Freestyle, and Claire in Freeestyle.
Claire competed in her event on Sunday and achieved her second fastest time for 50m Freestyle.
Ollie competed on Saturday and Monday in his three 50m events. He successfully came through the heats with PB times, and qualified for the finals – 8th fastest in Freestyle, 2nd fastest in Backstroke and 3rd fastest in Breaststroke. His Backstroke final achieved a first place, and a Gold medal, and another PB time. He came fourth in the Breaststroke final and 7th in the Freestyle, again with PB times.
Our congratulations go to both our swimmers, who represented our club so successfully.
