WSC Triumph At Gala

WSC novice league gala team

10:08am 6th February 2013

Weymouth Swimming Club triumphed at their first outing at the Dorset Novice League, claiming first overall and 15 wins out of the 24 events.

The team excelled both the girls and boys 14/u and 10/u 50m Backstroke, with Kara Draper, Joshua Westlake, Lauren Knight and George Cartwright taking first place. Nathan Calton also came first in the 11/u race, with Kate Norman claiming third in her race of the same age group. Zoe Allan was denied a placing in her 12/u race because of ‘speeding’ – where organisers had set time limits for each event.

The girls proved invincible in the 11/u, 12/u and 14/u 50m Butterfly with Alice Adams, Sophie Godbold and Bethany Carr coming first. Tyler Baker took second in the 12/u boys event, Lauren Knight came third in the girls 10/u race, Aidan Turner took third in the 14/u boys event and Daniel Kingman claimed third in both the 10/u and 11/u races.

There was more success in the 50m Breaststroke with Sophie Moore and Nial Turner beating the competition to come first in the 12/u events, and Chloe Calton finishing first in the 14/u race. Tyler Baker claimed second in the 11/u boys race, George Cartwright took third in the 10/u race and Holly Calton came fourth in the girls 10/u event. Both Charlotte Harris and Joshua Westlake were denied placings for ‘speeding’.

In the 50m Freestyle Lauren Knight and Daniel Kingman came first in the 10/u individual events, Aidan Turner won the boys 14/u race and Kate Norman and Nathan Calton both came second in their 11/u races. Tyler Baker and Chloe Calton took third in their races, and Danielle Brunell was unplaced for ‘speeding’.

Weymouth Swimming Club Head Coach Steve White said: “Our swimmers did superbly well and they can all feel extremely proud of their performance – overall we had 22 first places, six second places, eight third places and two fourth places.

“The gala gave our squad a great opportunity to compete against swimmers from across Dorset and see the results of all their hard training.”

Weymouth swimmers also won eight out of the 12 relay events. Weymouth came first place in the mixed 9yrs, 11/u, 12/u and 14/u Freestyle relays, the mixed 14/u and 12/u Medley relays, the mixed 9yrs Breaststroke relay and the prestigious Cannon relay.
