Ten swimmers from BBSC spent their Bank Holiday weekend in Norwich, at the East Region Age Group Championships. Sophie Clerkin competed in six events, making four finals, with her best finish a fourth place in the 50m Freestyle, agonisingly close to a medal. She also made the finals of the 100m Freestyle, 100m Breaststroke and 50m Backstroke. Thomas Underdown had a packed schedule, swimming in the 50m, 100m, and 200m Breaststroke and the 50m, 100m and 200m Backstroke.
In the 50m Breaststroke there were strong swims from Hollie Heighes and Ella Greatbach, both 11 year olds swimming in the mixed 11/12 age group. They finished 2nd and 3rd fastest 11 year olds in the field. Marcie Aley competed in the 50m and 200m Breaststroke, whilst Finley Petts and Sophie Ball swam the 50m Butterfly, and Collin Okusaga and Sophie O’Rorke competed in the 50m Freestyle. Harry Rose finished as third fastest 11 year old in the mixed 11/12 age group 50m Backstroke.
Well done everyone for stepping up to Regional level and racing against the best swimmers from across the whole East region.
