Derbyshire ASA County 50m Sprints Sunday 6th December 2015
On Sunday, 6 December, 23 Etwall swimmers took part in the Derbyshire ASA County 50m Sprints, which were held at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.
Out of 84 swims, 49 swims by the swimmers, beat their entry time. We had the following swimmers who achieved top 6 placings:
Top 3: Toby Arnold (top three placings), Helen Rolle (top 3 placings), Jacqui Mann (top 3 placing), Malachy Watt (top 3 placing), Carys Coppen (top 3 placings), Beth Willetts (top 3 placings), Ryan Lovatt (top 3 placings) and Charlotte Hall (top 3 placing).
4th-6th placings: Emily Whitfield, Adam Banks, Sam Littler, Kynan Wong, Chloe Holden, Charlotte Hall, Jess Banner and Sophie Hotchkiss.
This was a remarkably achievement by those who took part. Also, they did the Club proud by their impeccable behaviour on poolside and when warming up/cooling down in the diving pit.
Well done to you all. Not long now until the Derbyshire ASA County Championships in February. Keep up the hard work in training and as you saw last week, the hard work in training does pay off.
Etwall Eagles Swimming Club was formed in 1980 to organise and provide competitive swimming for people in the Etwall and surrounding area.
The club is based at the Etwall Leisure Centre, Etwall (west side of Derby), Derbyshire. All members, young and not-so-young, with varying standards of ability are well catered for. Within the club we have members who regularly compete at Regional, District and National level. The Club is affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association, ASA East Midlands Region and the Derbyshire ASA.
We are a relatively small club with currently about 300 members, and are always seeking new members. Our Chief Coach is Dean Howard, who is helped by Charlotte Howard, Chris Roworth, Rachel Slevin and Rachel Joyce.
The club trains four nights each week in the 6 lane x 25m pool at Etwall, and one night in the 6 lane x 25m pool at Repton School. Training periods suit different ages and ability. Particular attention is given to developing our younger swimmers.
