Jacob does the double at Midlands 2016

Congratulations to county squad swimmer, 15 year old Jacob Carrington. who became Regional Champion in the 50 Back and 100 Back at the 2016 East Midland Championships held at Ponds Forge.  Jacob was defending his title in the 50m back so to complete the double was a great achievement considering he has been battling with an injury this season.  He also finished 5th in the 50m free.  The 50m back race was a close call with Jacob touching in 29:53 which is a new 15 year club record previously held by National Backstroker, Tom Roberts.  Jacob now waits until the qualification window ends in May to see if he has qualified for the ASA National Championships in August. Well done also to Jack Reddington who had to compete in a 'swim off' to secure a place in the 16 year old 50 fly final where he finished in 10th place.  We also had a number of CABSC swimmers representing NOVA Centurion -  congratulations to 15 year old Jess Doherty who made her first Midlands final in the 200 Backstroke and finished in 9th place; Rosie Rudin was competing in the 200 fly (not a regular event for her) and took silver and James Cox finished in 6th place in the 1500m Free improving the 800 and 1500m club records that he had previously set last month at Derventio.   Well done also to Kris Moodley, Tom Fletcher, Sandy Jarvis, Kelsey Giles, Jack Wilson, Lilly Cherry and George Partridge who all competed over the weekend.   The Junior Midlands Championships starts on May 28th at Corby.

Tulip Open Meet 2016

The annual CABSC trip to the Tulip Open Meet 2016 was much smaller than previous years, and sadly there was no camping this year, but it still turned out to be a great weekend of swimming for those that competed.  We had a few of our younger swimmers competing in their first open meet and they got off to a great start. In the 9 year old age group Charlotte Allbones won a silver in the 50m breaststroke and came 5th in the fly and 6th in the back.  Amelie Clayden also swam some great PBs.  Matthew Cox won 4 golds and was top boy in the 9 year old boy age group; and George Kennington swam some great PBs in this age group too .   10 year olds Mya Whitby, Anastasia Walker, Noah Rai and Ollie Wilson were swimming 100m for the first time and came out with some fantastic times. Noah Rai bravely attempted the 100m fly and qualified for the final then unfortunately a false start saw him leave without having another chance at it but he still proudly came away with the 6th place trophy.  In the 11 year old age group James Cox won 3 golds in the 100 Free, Back and IM and a closely fought silver in the 100 Fly.  James also broke the event record and the 100m fly club record by 4 seconds in a time of 1:13:84 and improved the 100 IM record which he currently holds.  11 year old girls Neave Kielty and Sophie Harris had some great swims and Hermione Blackwood narrowly missed out on the 12 year 100 backstroke final.   In the 13 year old age group Georgia Wilson was a last minute entry into the 100 fly and came away with a 20 second PB and bronze medal to go with the silver in the 100 back.  Ruby Whitby had a great swim in the 100 breast just missing a place in the final alongside Claudia Lister who came 5th.  Fabio Medri swam a big PB in the 100 breast and was favourite for the final but was pipped into second; he also came away with a silver in the 100 fly and 100 Free and a bronze in the 100 Back.   Finally in the 14 year age group Sophie Kennington swam a 21 second PB in the 100IM and Kya McBride won 2 silvers and 2 bronze medals.  Overall CABSC were 8th which was pretty good considering that we only had a very small team.  Well done to everyone who competed and thanks to Nigel, Katey, Nicola, Tracy, Rob and Pete who all helped out poolside and all our patient supporters (and Reggie the dog) who waited outside until their swimmer raced !
