Eastbourne Swimming Club is celebrating success at the County Championships.
They made it through to the final round of the competition at the weekend.
On Saturday (4 March), there were 6 swims and 5 PB’s with Ava-Lily Parry narrowly missing out on a South East Regional Base Qualifying Time on the back of a 2.3 second improvement. Kian Day took a second off his 50m Breastroke, as did Marcy Harley on her 50m Butterfly. Sophia Titterton-Manos and Kacey-Lee Phillips both managed 2 seconds off their existing PB’s in 50m Butterfly which equates to an improvement of over 5%.
Sunday saw Marcy Harley smash 13 seconds from her 400m Freestyle Personal Best time and over 1.5 seconds from her 50m Backstroke time. Ava also PB’d for the second day in a row on her 100m Butterfly. The other two swims were completed in style by Sarah Quinn and Chloe Hughes with their end-times being almost identical to their previous bests.
Head of Performance James Nock said, “These results after just 8 weeks of the new training plan are very encouraging. New plans often take time for swimmers to adapt to so this weekend definitely far surpassed any expectations that I had, well done to all those involved.”
