Over the course of two weekends team members from Stretford ASC have been competing against other swimmers across Greater Manchester at the Greater Manchester Autumn Meet. What a successful two weekends our swimmers had. Medals for some, PBs for all our competitors and whilst there was not a team competition, the suggestion is we were one of the Top 10 performing clubs (parent’s view was Top 3!!!). We had three swimmers in their first open meet gala, so well done to Saioa Echeverria, Ainara Echeverria and Eleanor Smith. Congratulations to all and a summary of medals is below.
Gold (200IM; 50 Fly; 50 Back; 50 Free; 200 Back; 100 Back; 100 Free); Silver (400IM; 200 Free; 50 Breast; 100 Breast); Bronze (400 Free)
Additionally Reuben Rowbotham-Keating, Alfie Marrs and Chiara Tomasello were the top swimmers in their respective age groups over the whole meet.
A total of 154 swims, with 120 faster then entry times, 17 Golds, 16 Silver and 11 bronze. Everybody swam at least 1 PB and a special mention about one of those Erin Hoyland’s swim in 400 IM – her time in this gala was almost as fast as combining her 100m best times from the individual events -“awesome!”
Well done to all!
