Stingrays Swimmers at Wiltshire County Championships
Last month twenty five of the younger Stingrays swimmers (age 9 -13yrs) travelled to Swindon to compete against over 300 swimmers from throughout Wiltshire in the County Championships. Salisbury swimmers achieved over 130 personal best times from 153 races – a fantastic total & testament to the hard work of age group coach Dave Currie who coaches the majority of these swimmers.
Luke Demetri achieved a National qualifying time in the 100 breaststroke as well as three Wiltshire age group best time records. District times were achieved by Robert Croager, Sidney Fenwick, Luke Demetri, Georgia O’Keefe, Emma Jackson, Matilda Bryant & Phoebe Wing which enables these swimmers to compete in the South West Championships later in the year.
In her first County Championships Oni Taiwo came second overall in the 9yr old girls, Katy Cutler achieved fifth place in the 10 yr old girls and Phoebe was sixth (13 yr old girls). For the boys, Sidney was third (11 yr old boys) and Luke & Robert topped their respective age groups (13 & 10yrs).
Overall the club won 44 medals with Robert & Luke topping the table – they both won either gold or silver in all their races! As well as the district swimmers, other medallists included Elena Demetri, Oni, Katy & Luke Musselwhite.
Well done to all the swimmers who competed & thank you to Dave & Eric for all the coaching & support.
