ERIC PENWILL TROPHY RELAY GALA 2/2/14

Spectators in the packed viewing gallery at Southbury Road were treated to a very exciting and very well run relay gala on Sunday evening.

Due to withdrawals and illness we sent a relatively inexperienced squad to this gala but while they may of lacked  race experience they certainly made up for that with lots of enthusiasm and determination.

With the Junior League a couple of months away this gala is always a great way of seeing how the young swimmers cope and react to a race environment. Finishing in 5th place and only 4 points away from 3rd was a satisfactory result and as long as the swimmers continue to train hard and remember to take what they learn and practice in the training pool into a racing situation then they will continue to grow in their development as competitive swimmers. A big well done to all who took part.

 Many thanks to Head Coach Wayne Lock and Steve Greer for all the coaching on poolside, thanks to Ray for making sure all the swimmers were at the right place at the right time. A big thank you to Iona Ocak who gave up her afternoon to help out on poolside and to John Goudie who managed to get all the splits from the 28 relays up in the gallery.(some feat considering the viewing gallery was in near darkness)

SQUAD: Harriette Sebag-Montefiore,Isabella Hudson, Elena Dewhurst, Polly Rayner, Eve Proctor, Emma Brealey, Mabli Eliman, Annie Thomas, Sadie Wilson, Dora Goudie, Sydney Celul, Bluebell Carroll, Emily Thomas, Jessica Neale:

 Ahmet Arslan, Alden Whiting, James Brealey, Conrad Rayner, Sam McAllister, Billy Winterburn, Matyas Sinko, Isaac Omondi, Leon Wolanski, Leon Butterworth, Luke Dudley, Louie Marsden, Tommy Donovan.

HACKNEY AQUATICS LONG DISTANCE MEET 25/1/14

On Saturday evening Fred Goudie (14) and Tommy Donovan (12) made the short journey to the Clissold Pool to embark on the gruelling long distance event of 1500 metres in the water. Both boys went away very pleased with their performances in the pool.

Fred was competing in his first 1500 race but his love for training and competition was very evident as he made it look easy by powering his way home in a time of 18:21.58, which placed him in 4th spot, only missing out on bronze by 4 seconds. His time was a full 1minute15 secs inside the county qualifying time and he smashed the club record by 3 minutes.

Tommy was looking to qualify for the counties for a second successive year in this long distance event and he was not to be disappointed as he took 47 seconds off his PB to easily qualify with a time of 19:54.32. That fast time ensured Tommy the gold medal and also a new club record.

 

Head Coach Wayne Lock was very happy with the swimmers afterwards as they both stuck to the game plan that they had discussed beforehand and it was perfectly executed within the race environment. 

 
NATIONAL ARENA LEAGUE 3RD ROUND 14/12/13

Eltham was the venue for the third and final round of this year’s National Arena League campaign where once again Anaconda had made it to the division 1 final looking to improve on last year’s performance.

Against the top eight teams in the league it was always going to be tough and after a slow start the swimmers started to show their quality and held their own with 13 podium finishes by the end of the 50 races.

The 15/u boys’ squad were very dominant throughout with wins for Freddie Cornwell in the 100m fly and Riyan Salem in the 100m breast and a 2nd place finish for Fred Goudie in the 100m back. The boys also won both relays with Freddie, Fred Celul, Alex Mackay-Howse and Sam Llewellyn-Smith storming to victory in the 4x50m free and Freddie, Riyan, Fred C and Alex cruising to top spot in the 4x50m medley.

The boys 10/11 squad also had a very successful night with Alistair Woolley winning the 50m fly and clinching a close 2nd in the 50m free. Noah Boydell swam strongly to seize 2nd place in the 50m back. The boys were joined by Leon Butterworth and Gabriel Wilmshurst to grab 2nd spot in a hard fought 4x50m medley relay.

The Open squad also contributed to the podium count with stylish victories for both Sarah Boyle in the Ladies 100m back and Brett Mclean in the Men’s 100m breast.  The Men also picked up a 2nd place in the 4x50 medley relay with Calvin Biss, Freddie Cornwell and Wayne Lock joining Brett.

So at the end of an exciting evening of racing Anaconda finished in 4th place on the night and 4th place in the league overall. Every swimmer who pulled on the red cap of Anaconda contributed to a fantastic campaign and should feel proud of all their achievements, every point won helped us to improve on last year’s league position which as a club was our target.

 Well done to every swimmer who took part in this season’s campaign and with lots hard work in training over the next ten months let’s see what we can achieve next year.
