The weekend’s competition proved to be another hugely successful event for our younger swimmers, as they battled against 9 other northern clubs in Durham City’s annual Medley Challenge.

The event saw our youngsters go head to head across all four strokes, to win a place in an age group medley final.

After some strong performances and a ream of personal best times, we managed to secure a place in 10 out of a possible 14 finals –  with some events even having more than one qualifier!

After some exciting swims, we were crowned champions in the Boys 9 years age group, the Boys 12 years age group and Girls 13 years age group, with a further 3 silver medals, two bronze and several place awards to add to the tally.

Congratulations go to:

Jacob Davison (9)  Wavin Cup Winner

Luke Pye (12) Nationwide Home Improvement Cup Winner

Taryn Wheat (13) Ramside Hall Hotel Cup Winner

Lauren Heppell (9) Silver

Tara Sebastiao- Yatsuzuka (10) Silver

And a huge well done to all our other competitors who achieved numerous personal best performances.

Apart from the stifling heat, it was a fantastic day all round, and another successful day of competition for our swimmers.
