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:
Congratulations to our swimmers at the recent COMAST gala. Those swimming for Stretford on the day delivered almost a clean sweep of PBs and Lancashire County times achieved by: Nell; Vanessa; Alex; Alfie J.; Rohan.
There were medalists too – well done:
Grace; Hannah; Kaitlyn; Vanessa; Alfie M.; Jae Den; Jake; Jared; Lewis
The timetable for summer training. Diary to be updated.
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.
We had two swimmers representing Bolton & Manchester Swimming Association at the recent Inter Association team gala. We should be rightly proud of both swimmers, particularly when we receive the comment below from one of the officials of the association:
“Chiara and Reuben did a wonderful job of representing Bolton and Manchester at today’s IA Meet and thereby also representing Stretford.
Please thank them both for getting a bucket load of points between the two of them.”
The team finished second behind Liverpool & District and full results are on the M&D website:
An excellent finish to the Point Score season sees promotions for nine of our swimmers. Congratulations to:
Bronze –> Silver: Lucy Butt; Kaitlyn Crosby; Bethan Roberts; Lewis Crosby; Jerome Walker-Sherriff
Silver –> Gold: Lyanne Chung; Ainara Echeverria; Aurora Fogato; Leo Bushby
Swimmer times are found below.
Hoping most of you will be able to make our Presentations Evening on 1st July, where the Point Score winners for 2016/17 will be announced.
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.
