Counties 2015 - Weekend 2

It was another successful weekend for CABSC at Counties so a big well done to all those swimmers who represented the club.  There were some fantastic swims and 93 PB’s recorded out of 110 swims which is a fantastic achievement and brings the total PB tally so far to 193!!

Congratulations to all our medalists.  Jacob Carrington from County Squad won gold in the 14U 100 FC in 59:11.  This was the first time Jacob had gone under 60 seconds which is an amazing achievement for a 13 year old and he now qualifies for the Midland Championships. Rosie Rudin added to her medal collection winning gold in the Open 100 and 200 BK and gave our younger swimmers a great demonstration of shoulder rotation and underwater work on backstroke.  Rosie set a new club record in the 100 BK (1:02:38).

Silver medals went to Jack Wilson in the Open 400 IM and CDS swimmer Becky Whittaker in the 10 years 200BK and 400FC.   Becky also took bronze in the 200 Fly along with Jack Wilson in the Open 400FC and Amber Keegan in the Open 200BK.  Isobel Filer qualified for the final of the 14U 200 fly and took the bronze medal in a PB of 2:35:31, narrowly missing out on the Midland qualifying time.  

Congratulations also go to Jess Doherty who achieved her first Midlands time for this year in the 14U 200BK.    County Swimmer Will Halstead could hardly contain his excitement when he saw the electronic timing board after the 12U 50 Breast.  Will led from the front and swam 38.93 to qualify for Midlands.  We also had a number of swimmers narrowly missing qualification but who are on course for later on in the year.
Finally, after a long day at Beechdale, 10 year old Lilly Cherry stayed on into the evening to swim the 800FC and shaved a massive 25 seconds off the 800FC club record which she currently holds!!

Here’s a note from CDS Coach Kate Vines, who coached the team this weekend…..

“It’s been a few years since I was last at the county age groups… in fact, apart from a momentary blip when I thought it would be fun to compete as a 32 year old (!?) , it’s been over 20 years since competing at my own counties! Returning as a coach was such a great experience; I felt every swim as though it was my own!  Memories came flooding back as to how the nerves felt, how the races felt (especially that 200 fly!) and that feeling of touching the wall and knowing that all that hard training had paid off. Seeing swimmers who have worked hard on various aspects of their swimming, putting it into action in their races and getting the results they deserved was particularly impressive… We had some AMAZING starts and turns in some of those races!  The real highlight for me was seeing so many PBs being totally smashed to pieces ... it made for some really exciting races... the result of which is that I now have no voice!  Not only was blown away by the CABSC performances, but also by the way the team conducted themselves throughout the weekend.  They really did do themselves, their parents and the CABSC coaches proud.
WELL DONE to all the swimmers and a massive THANK YOU for easing me in gently!”

The next Counties video will be appearing here soon….
