Luton Development Meet
Monday, 12 December 2016 13:22
Fourty-three swimmers attended the Luton Development meet on Sunday as a last-chance County qualifier event.  There were almost 100 PBs of which half were either first time or improved County Consideration times and 7 regional qualifying times were set.  One Club age group record was set alongside 21 golds, 20 silvers and 33 bronzes in a highly succesful day of competition for Hemel swimmers.

Arena 2016 - rd 3
Monday, 12 December 2016 09:09
What a night in East London that was!  Half way through the competition Hemel lay joint second, 17 points behind first, but with only 18 points separating second from sixth it was nail-biting stuff.  In the end it was Hemel that held its nerve to finish a comfortable second, a place above our pre-competition seeding, and only 9 points behind first.  arena 2016 rd3
The team has improved in each of the three rounds of this year's competition, for which credit must go to the coaching team as well as the swimmers.  This round was the third fastest aggregate time posted by a Hemel team in the competition ever, beating a time set by the record-breaking 2015 team. There were four first places but the result was more a tribute to consistency with 16 second and third places. There were no fewer than 23 individual or relay lead leg PB's, a number of them significant improvements, which is a remarkable achievement coming toward the end of a hectic short-course season.  There were ten new or improved Regional QTs, one Club open record, 4 Club age group records and three Club competition records. Overall it was a huge step-up in effort with non-swimmers raising the roof in support of their team.

November's swimmers of the month are Louisa Wilson and Ernie Coldwell, both Sealions 2. Louisa was our top fundraiser in our Children in Need sponsored swim and has shown amazing enthusiasm since showing the club. Ernie has shown fantastic focus and dedication is his training and this has resulted in huge improvements in his technique and stamina. Congratulations to them both.

Club Champs - 400IM
Wednesday, 07 December 2016 11:54
The final round of this year's Club Champs concluded with the 400 IM and once again the value of running the event jointly with Watford SC was clear with a number of fantastic races helping swimmers achieve 22 new personal bests alongside 18 first time swims.  Alice Fender set a new open Club record, Sam Gaines a new age group record, and Kevin McKenna became the first Hemel male swimmer aged 50 or over to swim the event, just beating his target time.  Both Sam and Alice also set Summer Regional times along with Georgia Purkis and Mattias Morse.
 
Children in Need
Tuesday, 06 December 2016 15:28
We raised a magnificent £3,812.40 in support of Children in Need - £ 286.98 from the Cake Sale and £ 3,525.42 from the Sponsored Swim - which will go a long way in helping the lives of children across the UK. A massive thank you to all those swimmers who took part and raised money, all the helpers who supported them, (and to those who ate all the cakes!) and to Lauren Wilding for organising it. It was great to see the team spirit the event created. The swimmer who raised the most money was Louisa Wilson, and something is on its way to her in recognition.

 
Records update
Tuesday, 06 December 2016 11:48
With meets coming thick and fast at this time of year we're running a little behind on reporting them for which my apologies.  Last weekend, fourteen swimmers attended the Black Lion meet in Kent, in a new departure introduced by Head Coach Oliver travelling down by minibus and spending the weekend at a local venture centre unencumbered by parents!  You can read a blog of their adventures here.  With over 75 PBs it was a resounding success with special mention for Joe Coldwell who set new Club age group records in both the 50 and 100 breast.  The same weekend, but rather closer to home at St Albans, Holly Robinson also set new Club age group records in the 50 free and 100 and 200 back.
 
Club Champs - 800/1500
Monday, 05 December 2016 11:28
Congratulations to everyone who took part in the 800 and 1500m events held jointly with Watford SC.  Alice Fender set a new open record for the 800 free as well as breaking the old age group record for a 15 year old by over 30 seconds.  Georgia Purkis set a new age group record for 14 yr olds, improving her own record set only a month ago by nearly 8 seconds, and Grace Cawley set a new age group record for 10 yr olds, breaking a record previously set in 2010.  Both Alice and Georgia set Summer Regional qualifying times.
