On Sunday 16th July 13 HHSC swimmers competed at the East Region Open Water Championships which doubled as the Hertfordshire County open water championships. The day saw some great racing, the lake was calm, the weather was generally fine except for some (heavy!) summer showers during the 5km race at the end of the day and no-one reported seeing any water snakes.

Club Champs 2017 - session 7

43 swimmers participated in the final session of this year's Club Championships - the 800 and 1500 free.  Four club age group records were set by Rebecca Sewell, Heidi Gibbens, Matthew Rafiq-Craske and Kevin McKenna.  Three county qualifying times and 4 County Consideration times were achieved.  Because these events are not swum all that frequently there were lost of first time swims and big improvements, but there were also some notable races.  Most extraordinary was Dylan Kennel beating Matthew Rafiq-Craske by just two hundredths of a second after 60 lengths, although the third heat of the 800 was a close second with Millie Herbert edging out Heidi Gibbens by just over a second, who in turn was less than 2 seconds ahead of Lois Emery after 32 lengths.  Well done to everyone who entered.

Milton Keynes League - round 2

Congratulations to the Milton Keynes League team who fought off a strong challenge from Reading and Dunstable to finish second on the night to Harrow.  There were nine first places and fifteen second and thirds. Particular mention must be made of 9 yr old Elliot Gillham who won both the 25 fly in his age group and more remarkably the 50 fly competing against swimmers a year older than him, both swims being the first time that he'd competed at those distances.
Club Champs 2017 - session 4
Written by Andrew Farrow   
Wednesday, 28 June 2017 06:56
The fourth session of this year's Club Championships comprised arguably the toughest indoor race on the books - the 400 IM.  45 swimmers took part with Alice Fender setting a new Open Club record and Jo Lee-Pearce and Mattias Morse setting new age group records.  There was some excellent racing with the longer distance really emphasising the relative strengths in strokes between swimmers. 

Perhaps not surprisingly for a race swum so infrequently there were lots of significant personal bests, notably a 43 second improvement by Freya Beresford, 30 seconds by Matthie Perrault, 24 seconds by Elliott Davies, 21 seconds by Ashley Coombs, 19 seconds by Dylan Kennell, 18 seconds by Millie Anderton and 15 seconds by Millie Herbert, Mabel Coldwell, Mattias Morse and Lewis Clark.  Particular mention should also be made of those who swam the event for the first time - Maisie Adams, Kate Cresswell, Freya Goad, Joel Green, Freya McDonagh, Henry Newbury-Kemp, Georgie Pearce, Rebecca Sewell and Nathan Whiting.
