Sorry for the delay, life got in the way.
Tynemouth was hosting a marathon of a gala starting on the Friday evening with the 200s free and IM. With the majority of the swimmers gaining personal best times it was a great start and spirts were high.
Moving onto Saturday morning, it began with a notable swims from Faye Brown and Erica Mould in the 400 IM. The morning flowed with personal best times abound.
Into the afternoon with boys 400 Free and again notable swims by Cole Reid, Ethan Storey and Oliver Quigley. Throughout the long afternoon session there was a mixture of results, however, the swimmers gave their best efforts. The last couple of events – girls 200 breaststroke and boys 100 IM still provided personal best times and a notable technical swim by Kate Binningsley.
Sunday took awhile to get started and the swimmers were feeling the Friday night session; but onwards they pushed to get into the swim of things in the boys 100 back with good swims from Oliver and Ethan. The afternoon session started with the girls 400 free and oh how they stepped it up with Chloe Stephenson smashing her entry time and Amie Errington, Erica, Maia Stovold and Anabel Gaish all getting best times. With the following event being the 100 free sprint all swimmers were on or beating their previous times by up to 3 seconds!! As we progressed through the afternoon session again had mixed results but still the swimmers were supportive to team mates.
Finally we arrived at the final couple of events – boys 200 back and girls 100 IM ; Chloe still smashing those times and a notable swim by Isla Johnson, with older girls Jessica Milburn and Evie Johnson gaining best times.
Absolutely massive congratulations to all swimmers and bring on the next event – our home gala!!!
