Strong Showing At Stockport Open

A small team of swimmers traveled to Stockport to take part in their annual short course open. As usual it was a fast gala with some of the UK’s big teams in attendance including the odd Olympian and Commonwealth Champion for good measure. Despite the tough opposition our swimmers did very well posting a host of personal best times including a couple of new club records.

Debbie Cocking gained 4 pbs with a series of strong swims and set a new junior record in the 50 metre butterfly with a time of 31.18 seconds. Dayna Towns improved her times in the 50 & 200 free, Abigail Jackson knocked 5 seconds off her 200 breastroke time and Alice Aucott finished 3rd in the 100 breastroke.

The boys also performed well with George Russell setting 5 pbs and also finishing 2nd in the 400 free & 50 fly and 3rd in the 200 free. George also broke the 4 minute barrier in the 400 free to set a new senior club record of 3:59.81. Jack Anderson also performed well over the weekend again with 5 pbs including a second place in the 50 free. Rob Pearson finished 2nd in the 50 free and 3rd in the 200 back and also picked up two pbs to round off a good weekend for our swimmers.
