Fantastic Swims by Grantham Swimmers at Tulip – Congratulations to Grace, Alex and Rosie for Qualifying for Counties for the First Time

A great group of swimmers went to Spalding.

Grace Turner (2nd in the 50 breast and 2nd in the 50 fly) was the next young swimmer to secure a place in next year’s County Championships in 50 butterfly. Grace achieved stunning progress by nearly 3 seconds in the fly race and is now the second fastest in the county ranking. Wow!

Alex Hallam Stott has shown great determination recently also qualifying for the first time for next year Counties in the 100-backstroke improving her previous time by a whopping 7 seconds.

Rosie Belcher swam a superb 100 butterfly, recording a stunning 9 second PB and claimed her first county time! Well done girls!!

Billy Reed managed to better his own club record in the 100 free – congratulations for another record Billy!

Mia Ellis dropped 3 seconds off her 100-free time, and nearly 6 seconds in the 100-fly final in which Mia finished 5th.

Chloe Daybell swam a great race in the 100-backstroke final finishing 3rd and the fastest from Grantham, achieving a new PB by over 6 seconds. Great Chloe!

Chloe Hopkinson finished 2nd in the 100 breastroke final with a very solid 2 second personal best time.

In the 100 breastroke final Billy Reed came first, Callum Melville second, Vadims Molcanovs third and Cade Barends fourth with an astonishing PB of 11 seconds! Cade also dropped 8 seconds in the 100 IM! Vadims also swam a great 50 free, which was faster than this year’s Midland qualifying time! Next year Vadims!
