The new swimming season is well underway now with West Norfolk SC teams being kept very busy at various league meets.
An enthusiastic young team travelled to Bedford for the latest round of the Junior Fenland League, under the guidance of manager Ryan Sykes.
There were some brave performances from new team members, including Erin Curl, Kyle Ostil and Mackenzie Stewart making their debuts for the club.
Alfie Randall was in superb form winning both the 100m I/M and 50m breast, along with two other second places. Alex Hall had a good win in his age group I/M, and swimming siblings Molly and Harry Sharpe took two second places each.
In the Eastern Junior League another young team took on tough competition from UEA, Peterborough A and B, and Lowestoft.
Boys’ team captain Freddie Laws is virtually unstoppable in breaststroke these days, taking first place with a stunning swim of 37.59 secs in the 12/u 50m.
Robert Addis can always be relied on to deliver great performances, winning the 11/u 50m free in 30.90 secs, along with the 50m breast too.
Nine-year-olds Anya Richings and Abigail Nicholson had their first taste of league competition, sharing the 25m races and appearing to enjoy the evening greatly, undaunted by the quality of opposing clubs.
Thomas Owen also swam for the first time, teaming up with Henry Overton, Sam Randall and Harvey Isle in a relay. Rosie Muspratt enjoyed her duties as girls’ captain, just being pipped to first place in the 12/u 50m breast.
Many thanks to the enthusiastic parental supporters, and all the valuable assistance from club officials.
