Successful first weekend at Club Championships

It’s been a good first weekend at the 2017 Boston ASC Club Championships with plenty of Personal Bests, County Qualifying Times and Club Championship records being broken.

It was again the girls who broke the most records with 15-year-old Kieva Clegg breaking all five records in the events competed over the weekend – 400m Free, 800m Free, 100m Breast, 200m IM and 400m IM.

In the nine-years age group Lola Whitaker broke three records in the 800m Free, 100m Breast and 400m IM. Ocean Orrey also gained a record in the 400m Free and also broke the previous 800m Free and 400m IM records to finish in second place to Lola.

10-year-old Amelia Ridge lost her 9-years record in 800m Free but gained the record in her current age group and also the 400m Free.

Twelve-year-old Rico Bringeman made sure the boys were represented in the record breaking – smashing the 1500m Free record with a very impressive 18.18.4. He also gained records in the 400m Free, 200m IM and 400m IM.

Full results are available here.

The next weekend of competition takes place on Saturday and Sunday 1st and 2nd July 2017. We are still looking for donations of raffle or tombola prizes and also if anyone would like to have a go at time keeping please put your name on the noticeboard list.

Boston A dominant in Anglian League

Last weekend saw Boston Amateur Swimming Club field two teams in the second round of the 2017 Anglian League competition at Whittlesey, with Boston A looking to build on the lead they took in the first round.

Boston A took an early lead and at the halfway stage on 69 pts with West Norfolk 8 points behind them and Boston B in 6th with 34 pts.

The second half saw a dominant Boston A pull away from the rest of the teams winning 8 of the 15 races and although Wisbech picked up most of the remaining wins. However with many second places the result was never in doubt.
