Abigail Pashby swam 4 lengths getting 100 m and Selma Omran went that bit further to achieve 200 m. Sam Smith gave it three goes to get 400 metres and Loretta Nolan, who thought she might manage 400 m, actually swam 40 lengths for a 1000 metres badge and may have kept going if she had more time. Alana Russell swam 1000 m and Jackson Smith completed 20 more lengths for 1500 m. Libby Robson, Alex Gallaguan, Sam Race and Raphaella Lund all went a mile, 64 lengths. 2000 metre badges went to Eleanor Kirby, James Draper and Bea Russell.

Spring 2016 Yorkshire Championships Report and Results

Posted :08 March 2016

Please see report and results below

Spring Yorkshires 2016 Scarborough Swimming Club are celebrating their success at the prestigious Yorkshire Swimming Championships. Held in 50m pools in Leeds and Sheffield, across 3 weekends during February, these championships attract the fastest swimmers in the county and with over 130 qualifiers in some of the events, per age group, this is six long days of competition. With a record number of individual qualifiers , Scarborough had Finalist swimmers at every one of the six sessions, making an impressive 22 Finals between them, Scarborough also entered five age group teams who earned an exciting four finals. Once again leading the way, was the talented Amy Corcoran , who earned the title of Yorkshire Champion, taking the Gold Medal and trophy as the fastest 14 year old girl in the 200m Individual Medley, in a time of 2.33.37. Amy then went on to take the Silver medal in her 100m Breaststroke in a time of 1.19.52 and narrowly missed medals coming 4th in her 400m and 800m freestyle events. Amy continued her success in the sprints, again narrowly missing medals with 4th places in her 50m Breaststroke and 50m Butterfly but easily earning her qualification times for the May North East Region Swimming Championships. 17 year old Alex Lynn, proved he was back on form, picking up five strong senior North East qualifying times and winning his heats in the 50m backstroke and 50m Butterfly to take him into the senior finals. Two strong swims saw him take a 5th place finish in 50m Butterfly in a time of 27.07 and 8th place in his 50m Backstroke in a time of 29.41 Also narrowly missing medals was 13year old Joe Kelly with finalist places in four of his six entered events and earning five North East qualifying times. A competitive swim in the gruelling 400m IM gave him a 4th place finish, in a time of 5.36.19 and another good personal best swim of 2.55.96 for 200m Breaststroke saw him take another 4th place finish. A 6th place was earned in his 100m Breaststroke finals and a 7th place in his 50m Breaststroke, with a good personal best improvement of 4 secs on his 200m Freestyle gave him an 11th place finish and NER qualification. 14 year old Adam Dawson was on flying form for his championships. Looking powerful and determined he made four individual finals out of his 9 entered events. With two 7th place finishes his 50m and 100m Backstroke in times of 33.15 and 1.11.54 and earning NER times in these events, he also took a 9th place in his 200m Backstroke , with a strong 8th place finals finish in his 400m Freestyle, in a time of 4.49.93. Team mate 14yr old Owen Robson also took up the challenge in the 400m Freestyle to finish in 5th place with a time of 4.47.10 and gain his NER time for this event. Owen also made the finals in his 200m Freestyle with an 8th place finish in a time of 2.16.88 and an 8th place in his 50m Backstroke in 33.44. The 13/14 year old boys really showed their strength in the team events on the last day though , when Joe, Adam and Owen were joined by 14yr old Nathan Mundey. Against 24 of the fastest teams in Yorkshire, the boys were focussed and determined. The enthusiastic commentator and the loud, cheering crowd built the atmosphere for the heats, with the boys swimming strongly to earn places in the finals for both their events, the 200m Medley and 200m Freestyle relays. A short break saw them back in marshalling ready to swim, with both finals just 15 mins apart! The boys dug deep, missing a medal position by only a few seconds to finish in a well earned 6th place overall. The 13/14 Girls team of Amy Corcoran, Phoebe Dawson, Atlanta Dowkes, Katy Snell and Caitlin Wilson then went on to take up the high standard set by the boys. They did not disappoint, making both of their finals too in 200m Medley and 200m Freestyle relays. With deafening cheers they raced for home, improving their heat times to finish 8th in the freestyle and 10th in the Medley. The younger competitors swam well too, with quality experience at high level competition being earned. Eleven year old Chloe Holloway, competing in ten of her qualifying events had a strong swim in her 200m Butterfly and narrowly missed a medal to finish in 4th place overall. Team mate 11yr old Georgina Calvert also swam well in her four events, with a good personal best swim in 50m Backstroke, and seeing her finish in 19th place out of 131 eleven year old girls. An exciting end to a successful championships for the club. Club President and Head Coach Sam Greetham would like to thank his team of coaches and all the parents and helpers, who support our swimmers to achieve these results and confirm the Clubs status as the leading competitive club in the area.

Club Champs is a great chance for the younger swimmers to be inspired by the competitive section as they race alongside them and the older swimmers did not disappoint. The Support from the spectators intensified the atmosphere, with every swimmer determined to achieve their own personal best goals. Proving that commitment in training was paying off and they were ready to tackle the best of Yorkshire during February , Amy Corcoran and Owen Robson both broke long standing records from 1999 in 13yr and under girls and boys 100m IM, with Amy also smashing the 1983 50m Breastroke record. Adam Dawson meanwhile stormed the 50m Backstroke to take the 12/13yr olds 2004 record. The younger swimmers went on to show their potential, with stand out performances from 8yr old Eric Hobkinson, 9yr old Jessica Constantine , 12yr old Joe Kelly, 13 yr old Phoebe Dawson and 13yr old Special Olympic swimmer Angus Leckonby. The 14yr and under events were domimated by Dak Cappleman and 16yr old Alex Lynn showed his strength in the open events. Well done to all the swimmers who took part and thankyou to everyone who gives up their time to support the club and the swimmers. An award ceremony is being planned for presentation of the trophys and medals.
