West Norfolk Swimming Club pairing scoop top boy and girl accolades

West Norfolk Swimming Club and Norwich Swan SC jointly organised and hosted the inaugural Boudicca Meet at the Sportspark, in Norwich.

The meet was licensed at level 2, meaning that it was a ‘short course’ event, with races over multiples of 25m pool lengths.

The gala was set up to provide swimmers the chance to achieve times to qualify for winter regional and winter national competitions.

Among the visiting clubs were fellow Norfolk teams Yarmouth, North Norfolk Viking, Dereham Otters, Thetford Dolphins, teams from Beccles Kingfishers, West Suffolk and St Felix School, and others travelled from Melton Mowbray, Sheffield City and Modernian.

Over the two days, more than 200 swims were within the regional qualifying times achieved by swimmers from the different clubs.

Top girl and top boy awards went to West Norfolk Swimming Club’s Leah Wightman and Robert Addis.

West Norfolk head coach Sarah Vanderloo said: “This has proved to be a really popular late season meet for a variety of clubs and swimmers.

“This year is the first time it has taken place and is the result of months of hard work for the organisers from both clubs.

“The two clubs have worked well together and will both benefit from the hard work jointly put in. I’m hopeful that it will become a regular event in the calendar.”
