South Tyneside Spring Meet 2017

South Tyneside Spring Meet 2017

A sunny weekend at the beach which was spent poolside – but the weekend was a great success!

The swimmers from group 1 & 2 were brilliant and really worked as a team with everyone supporting each other and cheering each other on whenever they could. There was an electric atmosphere at Haven Point and we had great support in the spectator gallery – thank you to all who came to cheer the swimmers on! 

We had a PB rate of 69% overall across the weekend, with 122 PB’s!

This is just too many to mention them all individually but there were some fantastic swims with some PB’s smashed by a mile.

A special mention to Thomas Maskell, Blake Hooper, Carys Punton & Lucy Pearson who swam their 1st 400 free – all with fantastic times and the boys got their NER qualifying times 1st time out!
