Swim England North West Regional 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.

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.
