Potential squad at the Sunderland National Qualifier
Members from the Potential squad attended the Sunderland National Qualifier event on March 23 and 24 and for some of the swimmers this was a first time experience in a Long Course (50 metre) pool either swimming or event competing.
Even though the days were long, the swimmers did really well to keep on top of their effort throughout. From 58 swims they had 36 personal best times and a few others were very close too, so congratulations to all that competed. In addition there were 5 swims which are all but achieved for the Counties 2020, so keep up the training and confirm your places. Your plans went well and so set new ones for the home gala!!!
Congratulations to all who swam, my notable swimmers were Sophie Brown (50 FC), Madeline Blakelock (50 FC) and Evie Johnson (100 FC), also Oliver Quigley (50 BR).
In the younger potential swimmers special mention to Cole Reid (50 FC), Ethan Storey (50 Fly) and Isla Johnson (50 BK).
Happy coaches all round.
