Eight swimmers competed at the joint County Long Distance Championships (800 and 1500m) for Lincolnshire and Leicestershire last weekend. For the first time, the event was held in a long course pool at Loughborough.
Four swimmers from Grantham Swim Club swam well at the Junior Inter-County gala held a Biggleswade. Molly Colbert swam 100 free and came 4th with a small personal best, but bettering her own club record. William Hawkes came 3rd in 100 free and 2nd in 100 breastroke.
Certainly some of our top swimmers could learn from our youngest how to race with full commitment and determination. Abbie Philips astonished everyone not only by coming first overall in 50 fly but also by breaking Leah Roughan’s old club record.
