Swim teams record good results

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.

GM Age Group 2018 (03/04 March)

There was excellent swimming at the weekend from all our swimmers – high proportion of PBs; N.W. Regional Qualifying times from not just squad swimmers but also club swimmers (superb reward for exemplary training and commitment); 17 medals – 10 Champions (Gold), 2 Silver and 5 Bronze.

Well done to all those competing and we’re looking forward to the second weekend of the event, 17th and 18th March.  A reminder to those competing on 18th March, there is the Wigan half marathon on the day… you can still enter if you fancy (deadline Thursday) via the LINK , which also contains, probably more usefully, a map of the route.

Swimmer results from the first weekend are in the link below:

Point Score Results Season 2016/17

A fantastic season of point score racing resulted in one of the Webb’s winning again this season, the other just missing out on defending his title.

Congratulations to Eva for winning this year with 147 points, just pipping Ana by two points and Eleanor just six points further back.

The boys event was just as tight, with Reuben just taking Jack’s title, again by two points and Alex three points further back.

A superb season of racing.  Well done to our winners.

M&D Team Gala 11th June

Whilst the overall result was a disappointment, finishing fourth, we were up against all three of our excellent Trafford Borough opponents for the first time in M&D this season.

We’ve beaten them before earlier this season in this gala and racing is so close between all the four teams, it could quite easily be a different result if we raced next week.  Nevertheless, excellent times again from both established and new members of the team, the details of which are found in the link below.

Trafford Development Gala 5.05.17

An exciting night of swimming at our pool on Friday, in the second Trafford Development Gala of the year.  The lead changed hands throughout the event; we lead early on, picked back the lead mid-way from Trafford Metro, but were ultimately overhauled after a couple of DQ’s and Speeding Tickets by Flixton Swim Team.  A fantastic effort by all our swimmers and feedback from the other clubs suggests it is the best gala of the year so far.  Well done.  Swimmer times are below and the result was:

Flixton Swim Team 76; Trafford Metro 67; Stretford 64; Altrincham 60.
