Swimmers Dozen medals at Southampton Xmas Meet
Seaclose Swimming Club attended the City of Southampton Swimming Club Level 3 Xmas Meet with a very large team over the weekend of 12th and 13th Dec.
The meet produced a very successful weekend for the club and some fantastic swims saw a medal haul totalling twelve medals.
For the girls Megan King (13/14 years) led the way with Gold in the 200m Individual Medley and 100M Freestyle along with a Silver medal in the 50m Butterfly event. Amber Backhouse (13/14 years) collected medals for the second weekend in a row with Gold in the 50m Freestyle and Silver in the 50m Breaststroke whilst Eleanor King (15 years and over) took Gold in the 50m Butterfly event. The youngest competitor over the weekend and also taking Gold in the 100m Butterfly event was Mia Stillwell (9/10 years).
The boys were also in the medals with Alex Stewart (15 years and over) taking silver in the 50m Freestyle and Butterfly events and Bronze in the 100m Butterfly and 200m Individual Medley. James Stirling (15 years and over) also in the same age category took Bronze in the 50m Freestyle event.
A special mention goes to Tom Kral (15 years and over) who due to a technical error on entry was allocated to the wrong heats for all of his races but still managed to produce two new personal best performances over the weekend in the 200m Individual Medley and the 100m Freestyle.
The Hampshire County Championships qualifiers have now been finalised for Seaclose Swimming Club and congratulations to the following for their qualification: Amber Backhouse, Lelayna Blacklock, Eleanor and Megan King, Abigail Lacey, Mia Stillwell, Michael Joyce, Tom Kral, Frank Morrison, Alex Stewart and James Stirling.

Promising Season start for Seaclose Swimmers at Southampton Open
Alex Stewart and Megan King started the seasons medal tally for Seaclose swimming Club last weekend at the James Moreno Open Meet at Southampton.
Alex picked up a gold medal in the 400m Freestyle event in a time of 4 min 28.65 sec and also finished fifth in the 50 and 100m freestyle events. Megan meanwhile captured Gold in the 50m Freestyle event in a time of 27.93 sec along with bronze medals in both the 50m and 100m backstroke events.
There were also some well deserved personal best performances from Lelayna Blacklock, Grace Bolland, Eleanor King and James Stirling. Coach Val Gard said ‘this was a great start to what looks like being a great year’.
As you will remember the fees for squad sessions changed from September 2015 and many members have yet to change them.
Please can you do this ASAP and let us have the difference in fees for September and October (if paid so far this month) as the club has to cover the increased pool hire/ASA fees etc.
Pre-Senior Squads: £24
Senior Squads: £25
