North West regions – Youth 2023

This year’s Swim North West Youth Regionals proved to be a successful weekend for the older end of the squad with numerous pbs and medals being accumulated.

With some swimmers competing for the first time in the National qualifying window early nerves were evident but the squad showed great togetherness and spirit to help each other through which resulted in several swimmers putting themselves in the shop window so to speak for this year’s nationals. This was particularly evident in the 14/16 years women’s 800 freestyle relay with all four swimmers achieving personal best times.

Medals were won by:-

Caitlin Maylor 1 Silver 2 Bronze

Chloe Ridge 3 gold 1 Silver

Sam Grimes 2 Silver 1 Bronze

Rachel Hornby 1 Gold 1 Silver

Matt Tinkler 1 Gold 1 Silver 1 Bronze

Ruby Sheehan 2 Silver

Jack Pritchard 1 Gold

Alex Hornby 1 Bronze

Lucy Vaughan 1 Silver

Olivia Sheehan 1 Gold

Eve Horton 1 Bronze

A big thank you again to Jen and Mel on poolside for their invaluable assistance.

Big positives over the weekend:-

Team spirit

Professional approach to warm ups and swim downs Improvement from heat to final Lessons to be learned:- Some swimmers need to take the opportunities placed in front of them and not wait for it to happen, go out and grab it!!!!!!
