Stowmarket Swimming Club hosted its club championships in November and the final meet of 2017 was the ‘no frills’. Over these two galas the club had 37 qualifiers for the county championship which will be held at Crown Pools, Ipswich during February.
The club, along with Head Coach Sylvia Harrison, had the opportunity of attending a long course competition hosted by Waltham Forest whose home pool is the coveted 50m Olympic pool at Stratford. The competitors from Stowmarket rose to the long course challenge and 10 individuals secured a clutch of medals.
Trophies were awarded for top scoring boys and girls in each age group; both Calvin Coe in the 16yrs/over and Sophie Lander in the 12yrs categories were worthy recipients of the awards. Many of their swimmers had never raced in a 50m pool before and their performances were a credit to them all. The club had a great time and really enjoyed the opportunity of swimming at this amazing venue.
