Team Ilkeston swimmers were recently in action at the Rotherham meet over the weekend which saw some fast end of season racing to conclude the competitive season of 2017-18.
The team of 21 swimmers included; Alfie Brown, Alicia Bull, Amber Wilkins, Arwen Moore, Caitlyn Cooke, Dominic Webster, Elliot Bestwick, Emma Wilkins, Erica Beharall, Erin Pickard, Eve Beharall, Fern Hunter, Finley O’Neill, Hannah Cope, Joshua Bestwick, Leo Charlesworth, Louie Stadler, Max Bull, Naomi Forbes, Paige Baldwin & Steven Cope.
A hot and uncomfortable poolside still produced some excellent results with a total of 26 medals, and a 80.39% PB rate over the weekend. Swimmers can be proud of their performances, but most importantly they can use their individual points for improvement to further their individual progression next season.
Well done to all swimmers, and thanks to our poolside team of coaches and team managers who helped throughout the weekend; Kyle Hudson, Charlie Palmer, Dale Wilkins, Elaine Wilkins, Steph Brown, Victoria Bull & Carl Stadler.
