Overall in the 2011 Herts County Championships we had 53 swimmers qualify, 48 swimmers entered and we managed to produce 191 Personal Best Times with 10 Gold, 15 Silver and 17 Bronze medals, 7 top 8 finishes in the BAGCAT Championships and 8 Regional Qualification times.
Everyone’s times are now loaded on the Club database and are available online.
I want to say a big congratulations to all the competing swimmers not only did they swim well but they were a credit to our club with their behaviour and attitude – I am very proud to be Head Coach to such a great group.
I must also thank the back room team in the Club; we have a tremendous amount of support which starts months and months in advance with gala planning and gala entries to get the qualification times then the mammoth task of co-ordinating the entries for counties. We had a full team of 3 coaches at every session and we must mention the support of the coaching staff helping the swimmers to get times for the event. It really is a big team effort and I know from experience we do this much better than most clubs in the County.
If you did not manage to get a time for Counties this year then keep working hard getting fitter and improving your technique and you will get there.
