This weekend was the final weekend of the MCASA Age Group County Championships and it saw our Harrow SC swimmers racing their hearts out to finish in style, and boy did they step up to the occasion! As a club it saw them manage to also achieve 23 new personal best times, 1 silver medal, 3 bronze medals and 23 top 8 placings (finals).

Also well done and fantastic swims to the following who were also competing; Olivia Dawson (10/11), Xavier Golding-Laing (12 – relay), Saaj Malde (12 – relay), Nancy Nolan (10/11 – relay), Kishan Patel (13), Ioana Popovici (10/11 – relay), Mina Safahe (10/11 – relay), Sanchit Sethi (12), Mahi Shah (12 – relay), Louis Waissman (10/11), Aditiya Sharma (12 – relay).
To conclude on our success at Middlesex County Championships as a whole club I really feel we are building on the great foundations made over the years at the club and we are really starting to see the benefits of hard work and being consistent with their required training sessions. Due to this coaches are then really able to take that swimmers training programme to the next level and help them to hopefully achieve the next ring on the British Swimming ladder, which will now be qualification for the London Summer Regional Championships in May.
Don’t forget the next chance to qualify for this will be at our own ‘Regional Qualifier Open Meet’ 16th & 17th March at Barnet Copthall.
