West Midland Swimming have released their QTs for the 2017 Championships. The schedule and entry pack will be available in due course.
A team of 26 swimmers made the short journey to Wolverhampton to race at Wyre Forest “Rock the Blocks” open. Some of our swimmers were aiming to gain or improve on County qualifying times, some out for Midland times, but all were there to have fun … and have fun they did.
A great team spirit, fantastic swims, PBS, medals, County and Midland qualifying times and The Mannequin Challenge, all contributed to a very tiring but thoroughly enjoyable weekend of racing.
Big thanks to coaches and parents who supported our swimmers over the weekend and to Wyre Forest Swimming Club for their hospitality and running a well organised open meet.
With my last Open Meet wearing a Stourbridge shirt, some of Prem took to the water at the Stafford Apex Open Meet.
Although we had coughs, colds and croaky voices (and that’s just the coaches) the swims were amazing.
We dominated the final heats with three and four swimmers in a lot of the races. We had gold after gold after gold in medals all weekend long and topped the medal haul up with silvers and bronzes.
We had both lifetime best & season best. We had swimmers who gave it their all to achieve today, we had team work, commitment and pride to wear Stourbridge on their hats.
It was a fantastic weekend, with fantastic kids who always give their best, you did your club proud today, you are a pleasure to coach and I will miss each and every one of you.
Can I just take this opportunity as always to thank all our officials, helpers, parents, teachers and coaches as without you all we wouldn’t be Team Stourbridge SC.
