Prestonpans Leagues Round 2

Another tremendous effort by all the swimmers showing that the hard graft in training is making a major difference to the level of performances.
A huge congratulations goes to Kirsty, Ellie, Alice, and Vilara for the effort and times posted for their swims. Vilara was competing in her first 200free and gave it everything. All four posted personal bests in their swims. I would also like to congratulate Elise who is improving all the time and her split time in the relay was excellent so well done.

Despite carrying a slight injury Abby competed really well as did Annabella, Rachel, Thomas, Maggie, Aimee and Kara. Elliot was clearly not feeling 100 per cent but credit to him for not missing any of his swims which says a lot for his determination.

The day produced some outstanding performances not least of which was Kara’s 200 Free. The meet produced no fewer than seven club records as follows

Elliot Furniss 200 IM 3.09.11
Ellie. Watt 50 back. 49.07
Ellie. Watt 50 Free. 43.10
Aimee Henderson 200 Free. 2.51.48
Thomas Henderson. 200IM. 3.11.96
Kara Armstrong. 200 Free. 3.20.05
Abby Rutherford. 200 I’m. 3.06.71

All times will be shown on swim scotland website in due course. In addition for archive purposes the club records broken at a previous meet have now been added to the Hogwarts report (am getting writers cramp with all these new records lol).
As usual if I have missed anyone out please accept my apologies in advance. Keep up the hard training and I have to say that the enthusiasm shown as a swim team is second to none so a big thanks from me and Susan.

I would also like to thank Thomas for helping me out poolside and also to confirm with Alice that despite over twenty games of Rock Paper Scissors I am still the reigning world champ lol.

Next on the agenda amongst other training sessions is our starts and more importantly our turns on all strokes which I feel can be improved upon.
