Kent ASA Championships

A Report From Noah's Dad Ian, on Noah's Kents
Noah had a fantastic first Kent championship in February and March. He achieved 6 golds and 3 silvers from 9 events swam.  There were golds in the 200 breast, 200 fly, 200 IM, 50 back and 50 fly and 100 IM. Silvers were in the 200 free, 50 free and 200 back.  The 3 weekends culminated with a 1-23.40 sec 100 metre Individual medley victory winning by 6 seconds.  All races realised PBs of between fractions of a second and 16 seconds in the 200 metre backstroke.

A Personal View From Nicola (our Vice Chair)
 
For me this has been an amazing experience, my boys have never qualified
 for Kents until Tommy achieved 4 QT’s this year for 50 & 100 Free – 50 & 100 Breast.
   Overall he was a little fish in a very big pond – age 14 boys tower over him
 in size, he needs to grow about 2 foot as that will help him being on par with
them all! He managed to PB in all 4 events, which just shows he is still improving
with training from his coach Dean!   A very well done to all those who qualified
from White Oak this year – I saw most of your races, & I know you did very well,
please write your successes to Keith so he can add the finer details to this
compendium/ blog.  
Harry, Noah & Demi were the medalists from White oak this year, very well
done to them, something they can be very proud of.


You can find all the results HERE.

Kent Relays WOSC Team entries.

WOSC has entered EIGHT Girls Relay teams and FOUR Boys Relay teams into the Kents this year.

A Personal Report  on the WOSC Relays, from Nicola
(Other  reports were requested, but this is the only one to arive so far)

This was my first experience of team relays, as WO had not entered them for a few years
and with Keith’s team organizing and Jill’s agreement for the club to fund the event and
also produce and fund the T-shirts we were in full swing for this to go ahead…

The  relay teams were set, swimmers accepted, all we had to do was turn up for check in at 8.15…
I was milling about at the event - among the swimmers, coaches and parents on Sunday 8th March,
and the feeling was a good one!! The Swimmers all had a lovely spot seated by the announcers
office, and I was amazed at how fab they all looked wearing their green matching T-shirts with pride. 
I took lots of team photos that will be put on the website.  

Harvey was in the boys 11/12 relay team with Ben, Joshua & Nathan – they all swam a great race
and in the medley came 15th and freestyle came 16th overall.  
Tommy was in the boys relay team 13/14 along with Harry, Thomas & Alex,
In the medley they came 10th overall.
In the freestyle we watched them come first in their heat, with a time of 1:52.90, which then put
them in the final! We were all wondering how they were going to compare with the eight
final teams, and were overwhelmed with pride that they came 3rd overall – a bronze place medal
knocking another 2 seconds off their first heat time at 1:50.66!! 
All us parents were kept on the edge of our seat – they had beaten Beckenham, Shepway, Black Lion,
Erith & District, and Saxon Crown – what a huge achievement!!  

All relay teams did so well, we sat and watched with great pride on the brilliant performances of
our cherished children, and really are looking forward to next year – same place same time!!!
