AmershamSC younger swimmers win Top Boy and Top Girl awards Haslemere B Grade Open Meet
While the senior and more experienced swimmers were training hard for the National Arena League Finals the younger members of the club were gaining valuable race experience at the Haslemere B Grade Meet.
And it obviously brought out the best in them as a huge percentage of the swims were in personal best times, over 100 PBs in all.
There were a smattering of potential county Qualifying times too, a great achievement so soon after this year's championships.
With many of the swimmers being new to competition it was fantastic to see them get so many top eight finishes, and even win medals. Of the 36 medals overall, 15 were Gold; 12 were Silver and 9 Bronze.
There were medals for the girls:
Polly McGrath 13: Gold in the 50m Fly & 100m IM
Lily Pearson 11: Gold in the 200m Free & 50m Back, plus Silver in the 50m Breaststroke
Magdalena Rospedzihowska 10: Gold in the 200m Free & 100m IM
Alice Moffat 9: Gold in the 200m Free, plus Bronze in the 50m Free & 50m Back
Danielle Parker 13: Sliver in the 50m Free & 50m fly, plus Bronze in the 200m Free
Rachel Padwick 12: Silver in the 50m Free
Amy Hortop 11: Silver in the 100m IM
