Northumberland and Durham County Championships 2019

Northumberland and Durham County Championships 2019Many congratulations to Jessica Maughan and Annabel Cooper who qualified to swim in the Northumberland and Durham County Championships at Sunderland Aquatic Centre over two weekends of 2/3rd and 9/10th February 2019. This year, these Sunderland Championships were only for “age group” swimmers (“age group” means swimmers aged between 10 and 14). Several other senior swimmers, Joseph Dobson.

Thomas Power, Neve Mason and Ryan Baker have also swum County times but were too old to compete in these championships. This gala was held in a 50-metre pool so all times swam were long course (50 metre) times.

Northumberland and Durham County Championships 2019Jessica Maughan swam in the 100m and 200m breaststroke events and gained long course personal bests (pbs) in both events. Well done Jessica!

Annabel Cooper competed in the 50m and 100m butterfly (fly), together with the 100m and 400m freestyle on the first weekend. Annabel was delighted with a pb in each of these events and won a silver medal in the 400m free with a new pb of 4.51.06. On the second weekend, Annabel competed in the 200m and 800m free, 400m Individual Medley and the 200m fly. Annabel gained long course pbs in the 200m free, 400m IM and 200m fly, together with a bronze medal in the 200m fly.

Very well done to both of our “Age group” swimmers and many thanks to the Coaches.
