An elite group of swimmers from Warriors of Warrington SC attended the British Swimming International meet last weekend with great success:
Leading the way was Kathleen Dawson who won the Girls’ Junior 50m Backstroke, was 3rd in the 100m Backstroke and 4th in the 200m Backstroke. Kathleen broke the Scottish Senior 50m Backstroke National record. Kathleen achieved 3 European Junior Qualification times. And we are delighted to confirm that she has been selected for the British team for the up and coming European Junior Championships, to be held in Poland in July.
Matthew Domville, in his first national championships, had a fantastic outing making the 18 and under final of the boys 200m butterfly at the age of 16 and coming a more than respectful 8th place in a personal best time of 2:08.96
David Richardson made his first Junior 18 and under final in the 400m Individual Medley which he finished just outside his best time in 4:44.59 but a very credible 10th place for his first International Swimming Meet.
14 year old Oliver Houghton showed his future potential by reaching the 18 and under 50 metre backstroke final , in a personal best time of 28.22. This swim shows that Oliver has the potential to swim at the highest level in Great Britain.
