Ludlow swimming club participated in round two of the National Arena League last weekend at Tamworth. Ludlow were competing against Telford, Blythe, Tamworth and Perry Beeches.
The evenings events went well and as always these young swimmers swam with gusto and enthusiasm. Many of our younger swimmers are at the lower age in their age category and often are swimming in the age group above, this never deters them from doing there absolute best. Swimming requires a great deal of commitment and in our very busy lives and living so rurally this commitment is multiplied, so a great many thanks to our swimmers and their families, our committee and team of voluntaries who give up their time to teach and officiate.
Our open swimmers from university once again travelled to support the club and did so with some great results. Guy Woodhouse wasn’t fazed by swimming the 100 Fly and achieved a PB.
Oliver Morgan swam well under pressure swimming in 3 individual events and 2 relays, sister Rebecca as always did some super swimming. The girls 15 year old team were just beaten in the medley relay at the start of the evening and were determined to win the Front crawl relay later in the evening, which they did with a 2 second advantage. Halfway through the events a consecutive triple win by Oliver Morgan, Ffion Gilbert and Jack Corston boosted the team. The whole team were proud of Jack Corston who PB in the 100 F/C with a time of 59.68.
The evening ended with some fantastic swimming in the open freestyle relays with both teams placing second.With 5 disqualifications the team finished 3rd without these we would have been placed 2nd but it was still another great show for Ludlow Swimming Club and we look forward to the third and final round in December.
On the 14th December we are holding our Christmas Party at Ludlow Rugby club from 4pm this will include the presentation of medals from the club championships.
