Winter County Gala 2014

Winter County Gala 2014

Following a huge reorganisation of British Swimming, Sussex County ASA held a Winter Champs competition for the first time over the last 2 weekends, at the Horsham pool. The qualifying times were hard, but 23 EGSC swimmers, aged 9 to 17, made the standard, some in several events.


There were some stunning personal bests, including 10 secs improvement in the 200m Breaststroke for 2 young swimmers for whom this was their first championship - Joseph Lancaster and Ben Bailey, and another 10 sec improvement from a much more experienced swimmer, 14 year old Becky Frost, in the 200m Butterfly.


Many other EGSC swimmers picked up medals, including Isabel Harvey, Keira Narraway, Maddie Sims, Heidi Crowther, Liam Foulds, Amy Cowley, Charlotte Alexander and Elena Kent in their various age groups and events.


However, the Club stars were 2 swimmers who had qualified in multiple events, and who performed well throughout the competition - 12 year old Abby Jackson, and 9 year old Luca Plater. Both amassed enough performance points to be crowned overall age group winners, Abby by some margin, having won her age group for all except one of the events she entered, and they received their championship plates from the County President.

The following swimmers represented EGSC at Winter County Champs - well done to all of you:

Charlotte Alexander, Matt Anthony, Benjamin Bailey, Amy Cowley, Heidi Crowther, Kirk Foulds, Liam Foulds, Ryan Foulds, Rebecca Frost, Abigail Hall, Isabel Harvey, Abby Jackson, Elena Kent, Joseph Lancaster, Keira Narraway, Jake Newman, Luca Plater, Chloe Pollard, Caleb Rebelo, Josh Rebelo, Isobel Reeves, Maddie Sims and Luke Stacey.
