Tigersharks continue their winning trend at South West Region Competitions.
Following on from the superb first weekend of racing at the South West Region Championships Tigersharks swimmers embarked on weekend two and three at Hengrove and Millfield.
The weekend got off to a superb start with Tigersharks hitting a 100% personal best time tally in session 1 at Hengrove. Jessica Smith (13) swam to a superb Bronze medal in the 400m FC and Isabella Thomson swam a superb final to take 7th place.
Session 2 saw the swimmers take on the 1500m FC event for both boys and girls. James Andrew swam to a PB taking a well-deserved 4th place. The girls reigned supreme with 11 year old Neve Porton taking the Bronze in the 11/12 year age group, Jessica Smith a Silver and Isabella Thomson a bronze in the 13’s, Caitlin Gulliver a Gold, Emilie Gulliver a Bronze & Grace Osman a 6th place in the 15 year age Group, Emily Preedy a Silver in the 16’s and Laura Edwards a 5th place in the 17 and Ov. A wonderful display of distance swimming from Tigersharks.
Day two continued in the same vein with the PB’s pouring in and Freddie Logan swimming to a great 8th place in the 50m Breaststroke final and Alfie Smithson producing a fantastic swim and time to take 7th in the 200m Butterfly final.
Millfield saw some mixed results on day one. Jessica Smith swam her way into the 200m FC final and Tigersharks were strongly maintaining a 98% Personal best status. Day two saw us raise the game again back to our 100% PB swims and producing stunning swims. Neve Porton showed her strength again as the only 11-year-old in the 400m IM taking 6th place and Jessica Smith taking 8th place. Freddy Logan swam a stunning 200m Breaststroke to come in in 6th place in the final in a another PB.
Tigersharks have shown themselves to be the most successful Wiltshire club at this year’s Regional competitions all down to the swimmers and coaches tireless effort and work.
Next British Championships, Home Nationals & National Open Water where we are hoping to feature at least 10 swimmers this year.
