Another belated post, this time from the Trafford Mets gala in May. The swimmer times are now published in the club format and are below:
Some awesome swims during the day, almost two thirds of which were PBs (Conner knocking 27 secs off one of his times) and a really good return on medals (16) from a total of 77 swims. Congratulations to those taking part in their first open gala and also to our medalists:
Ana (2 G); Grace (1G, 3B); Vanessa (1G); Alex (4G, 1S, 1B); Jae-den (1G, 1S, 1B)
Well, it’s been a couple of weeks since the invite lists were published so whilst we are overdue to say so, we are pleased to be able to congratulate four of our swimmers who have qualified for National Championships 2017 at the end of July:
Alana: 800m freestyle
Chiara: 200m freestyle; 100m backstroke; 100m butterfly; 200m I.M.
Alfie M: 50m freestyle; 50m butterfly
Jared: 100m and 200m freestyle.
On top of that, we are overjoyed that Chiara also qualified for the British Summer Champs taking place at the start of August:
50m and 100m freestyle; 50m backstroke; 50m butterfly
Have a great time at each event, #swimfast and enjoy. #WeAreStretford and proud of you all.
We traveled once again during May along Chester Road to Sale Leisure, this time to complete in the Manchester & District Program A semi finals against Trafford Metro; Glossop; Warrington.
The team stepped up, a number of whom had not competed at this level before, to finish second in the event. Unofficial score on the night:
Trafford Metro 117
