City of Derby Long Course Open Meet
Ponds Forge, Sheffield
Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th January 2013

 

This was the first long course meet of the season at Ponds Forge. Only a small handful of National swimmers took part. All heats were heat declared winners apart from the 100 meters where the swimmers had to qualify for finals.

First to compete in the over 15 years and over age group was Leah Altoft age 17 in the 100 meter breaststroke heat in which she qualified 8th for a place in the final in a time of 1.17.38 and improved her position finishing 7th in the final. Leah then went onto to compete in 200 meter backstroke and finished in 9th place with a time of 2.24.25. In the same age group Dervla Curran age 15 competed in the 200 meter freestyle and finished 6th in a time of 2.07.46. Dervla qualified for the final in the 100 meter freestyle in a time of 59.88 and finished 9th in the final. In Dervla's final race of the weekend she finished 10th in the 400 meter freestyle in a time of 4.29.29.

Shannon McGahey age 13 competing in the 13/14 years group improved all her times over the 2 day meet knocking 3 seconds of her personal best in the 200 meter freestyle in a time of 2.13.03, 2 seconds of her 100 freestyle in a time of 1.03.25, 4 seconds improvement in her 200 meter individual medley in a time of 2.34.16 and in her final race of the weekend a 4 second personal best in the 200 meter butterfly in a time of 2.30.24. Competing in the same age group Jace Cappleman age 14 finished 4th in the 200 meter freestyle in a time of 2.11.13, qualified in 8th place for the 100 meter freestyle final in a time of 1.01.83, Jace then went onto finish 7th in the final. In the 400 meter freestyle Jace finished 10th in a time of 4.37.93.

Members of the Junior A squad also travelled to Ponds Forge in Sheffield to take part in a prestigious level one meet and rubbed shoulders with some of the top swimmers in the country. 13 year old Bailey Hairsine acquitted himself incredibly well against tough opposition, reaching finals in both the 100 and 200m backstroke races. He ended up recording new personal best times of 1:11.09 and 2:28.49 respectively and finishing in four positions for both races, narrowly missing out on medals.

12 year old Darcey Hambly gained no less than three NER qualifying times over the weekend; swimming 1:07.53 for the 100m frontcrawl, 2:26.12 for the 200m frontcrawl and 1:17.23 for the 100m backstroke.

12 year old Jack Woodcock continued his impressive run of form by achieving a personal best long course time of 2:23.38 for the 200m frontcrawl and then posting a 13 year old NER qualifying time for the 100m frontcrawl in a time of 1:04.02.
