Connie Philips with 11 fastest time in British ranking sets a new club record during Boston Open meet while others claimed more county times
Despite the fact the meet was just a week after club champs, swimmers bettered their personal best times over 2 very long days of racing. The most impressive swim was Connie Philips 50 butterfly race. Connie set a target to break the 50 butterfly club record and this time she swam superbly, not only demolishing the previous record by a second, but also achieving 11th fastest time in her age group in Britain. Connie unfortunately missed the County record just by 0.1 second. Woooow what determination Connie!
Sophie Culpin was another swimmer who managed to break club records in 50 free and 50 fly. Well done!
