Well done to our squad swimmers who have qualified for the 2018 National Championships.
The British Summer Championships take place at Ponds Forge in Sheffield from 24-29 July and three of our swimmers secured qualifying times to participate – Reuben Rowbotham-Keating (200m freestyle and 400m Individual Medley), Chiara Tommasello (50m/100m events in freestyle, backstroke and butterfly) and Erin Hoyland (1500m freestyle and 400m Individual Medley).
The English National Championships follow at the same venue from 31 July – 4 August and Chiara (200m freestyle), Erin (800m freestyle and 200m Individual Medley) and Reuben (400m freestyle and 200m butterfly) have also secured qualifying times for them and will be joined there by Jared Armstrong (400m freestyle) and Luca Tommasello (50m freestyle).
Congratulations on a tremendous achievement – and good luck at the championships.

We had a number of our swimmers competing – either for Stretford or representing City of Manchester Aquatic Swim Team (COMAST) – over the three weekends of the Swim England North West Regional Championships. These are prestigious championships, involving the top swimmers from across the North West of England, and given the strength of swimming in the region it is an achievement to qualify to compete in them.
Congratulations to all of our swimmers who competed in them.
The swimmers representing Stretford can find their times here.
Particular mention to our swimmers who claimed medals over the weekends while representing COMAST – Erin Hoyland won bronze medals in the 800m freestyle and 400m individual medley, and a silver medal in the 1500m freestyle; Jake Christon won gold medals in the 50m backstroke, 200m freestyle and 400m freestyle, a silver medal in the 50m freestyle and bronze medals in the 100m freestyle and 800m freestyle; Chiara Tommasello won gold medals in the 50m and 100m freestyle and 50m and 100m backstroke; Reuben Rowbotham-Keating won gold medals in the 50m/100m/200m butterfly, 100m/200m/400m freestyle, and a silver medal in the 200m Individual Medley.

Our swim teams have done well in two recent galas, staging late rallies to surge into the top two places.
On Friday night (4 May) our development squad won the first of this season’s Borough Development galas against our Trafford neighbours – Flixton, Altrincham and Trafford Metro. From sitting in fourth place at the halfway stage some great swims saw the team finish on top claiming the first trophy of the season.
And the week before we all but secured a place in the Manchester and District Programme A Final by finishing second to Glossop after another late rally. The final will be in September – look out for details.
