It’s the final countdown . . . !
We’re (still) top of the league – and the Nuneaton Junior League squad are just one gala away from a place in the promotion final for the second year running! The third and final round is on June 27 at Rugby – if you are selected for the team, please make every effort to attend as every point could be vital.
Meanwhile, the Ross PGL League squad have sealed a place in the final in the club’s first season in the league – well done all! They claimed seventh spot in the league overall with a great win in the fourth round at Worcester and will now take on seven other teams in the final at Gloucester on June 6. Save the date!
Bank Holiday closures
There will be no training at Much Wenlock or Bridgnorth on Monday May 25. The session on Tuesday May 26 starts at 6.30am
Fab weekend at Midland Youth gala
Cameron and Jennie did the club proud at the Midland Youth Championships in Corby, with seven long course PBs from seven events. Cam also made three finals, finishing fourth in two and sixth in the other – breaking two club records in the process. Jen was a reserve for the 50m breaststroke final.
The pair were in exalted company - swimming for his City of Derby club at the championships was double world record holder Adam Peaty who, despite winding down from his starring role at the British Championships last week, gave a textbook demonstration of breaststroke swimming as well as helping out his team mates in the freestyle relay.
Senior land training . . .
. . . is ON on Saturday mornings in the small gym upstairs, 9.15am-10am. Open to all senior squad swimmers. Can anyone challenge Louise on the rope climb?
Shropshire Development Gala
Forms and details are on the noticeboards at Bridgnorth and Wenlock for the Shropshire development gala on July 4 & 5 at Wolverhampton.
It is open to everyone who does not have Midland times and THERE ARE NO QUALIFYING TIMES. The times on the boards are UPPER TIMES – if you have swum faster than these times you cannot enter, otherwise it is open to all.
There are events in all strokes and most distances, and the gala is a good chance to improve your PBs or get times to enter opens. If you have any queries about the competition, talk to your squad coach for advice.
Wenlock Junior Biathlon
Visit the biathlon page in events for entry details – there is a limit of 150 entrants, don’t miss out!
Well done Cam!
Cameron Minifie was the club’s sole representative at the Midlands distance championships at Coventry. Leading her 800m heat from start to finish, Cam recorded a big long course PB and bagged another long course club record to boot.
Dan Galloway, Elle Humphries, Cameron Minifie and Jennie Ballinger had a fantastic weekend at the Derventio level 1 meet in Sheffield. Daniel won a bronze medal, Elle gained two new Midlands times, Cam and Jennie consolidated their Midlands times and there were numerous PBs. The four swimmers also racked up no fewer than eight new long course club records between them.
The full list of long course records has now been uploaded to the members’ area – who else is going to get their name on the list?
