ERIC EADY GALA 22ND SEPTEMBER 2014

The National Arena League warm up gala, The Eric Eady, was held at Southbury Road on Sunday. Due to resting a few key swimmers, late withdrawals because of illness and unfortunately some no shows the squad was quite inexperienced and light in numbers. This however didn’t stop a very determined group put together some fine swims at this stage of the season and certainly gave the Coaches something to think about when selecting the squad for the Arena League campaign which kicks off in October.

The team accumulated 10 podium finishes on their way to 5th place at the end of the evening. Brett Mclean won the Men’s 100 breaststroke in a time of 1:10.71 and came 3rd in the Men’s 100 fly with a time of 1:02.84. Sam Llewellyn-Smith also had a 3rd place in the Men’s 100 backstroke in a time of 1:08.15. The Open relays saw Dominic Mcloughlin and Head Coach Wayne Lock join Brett and Sam to claim 2nd place in both the 4x50 Medley and 4x50 Free. Sam Tomkinson achieved a PB in the Boys 13/u 100 free and came 3rd in a time of 1:09.86.

The Girls 11/u squad of Elena Dewhurst, Annie Thomas, Charlotte Macey and Emma Brealey were in 3rd spot in the 4x50 free relay with a time of 2:26.26. The Girls 15/u squad of Esme Llewellyn-Smith, Aggie Benedict, Sofia Mavili and Jessica Neale had success in the 4x50 medley relay coming home in 2nd place in a time of 2:21.41. Aggie went on to get a second place in the 100 backstroke in a PB time of 1:13.38 and Esme clinched 3rd place in the 100 breaststroke. Special mention for the 15/u squad of Aggie, Esme, Sofia and Jessica who not only swam their age group races but also the Ladies Open races. A very gritty performance from the girls who showed a fantastic team spirit especially when they were told they didn’t have to swim the final race due to fatigue but still stepped up on the blocks. Well done ladies.

Many thanks to the rest of the squad who all played a part: Zach Lyttle, Billy Winterburn, Adam Tomkinson, Sam McAllistair,Sadie Wilson Alexa Kennedy,Emily Thomas, Alistair Woolley,Matyas Sinko, Dempster Fawden, Leon Scott-Engel , Jacob Omondi and Max Greenhalgh.

NORTH LONDON GRADED LEAGUE GALA 21ST SEPTEMBER 2014

Anaconda were the hosts for this gala at Clissold pool and after a shaky start by the poolside volunteers the swimmers got into the action and put together a superb performance in the pool.

The squad of 18 swimmers accumulated 28 podium finishes, ten 1st place, eleven 2nd place and seven 3rd place finishes from the 46 races. Every member of the team contributed to the 45 PBs which accounted for 9 upgrades. Although the team were penalised on the night for swimming too fast, we as a club go into these galas only expecting our swimmers to better their previous best times and to progress up the swimming ladder so Head Coach Wayne Lock and Ben Bedwell were very happy with the squads’ performance.

Well done to all the squad who contributed towards a great team effort.

LONDON REGIONAL AGE GROUP CHAMPIONSHIPS 2014

LONDON REGIONAL AGE GROUP CHAMPIONSHIPS 7th /8th /14th /15th JUNE 2014

This year’s regional championships were held at the iconic London 2012 Olympic Pool, where the regions fastest age group swimmers showcased their talents.

Anaconda had three representatives at this year’s championships in the shape of Fred Goudie (14), Max Greenhalgh (14) and Noah Boydell (11) and between them they swam in 13 events where they achieved 10 Long Course PBs and reached 3 finals.

Fred Goudie an ever present at the Regional Age Group Champs thru the years competed in 7 events and achieved 5 PBs in the 200m and 400m free, the 100m fly and 200IM /400IM. In the 200m backstroke Fred just missed his PB but his time of 2:28.56 was good enough to put him in 8th spot in the heats and a place in the final where he came 9th.

Noah Boydell was making his debut at this level of competition, but you would never have known that as the young speedster stuck to the game plan set out by Head Coach Wayne Lock and achieved a full complement of PBs in his events, 200IM, 100m & 200m breaststroke and the 100m and 200m fly. Noah’s times of 3:06.97 in the 200m fly and 1:25.25 in the 100m fly meant he qualified for both finals where he finished in 7th and 10th respectively.

Max Greenhalgh was also making his bow at this level in the 100m breaststroke where he also achieved a PB with a time of 1:21.81.

 

Well done to the boys who qualified and swam so well at such an impressive and inspiring venue, let’s hope we as a club build on this and achieve more qualifiers for next year’s Regionals.

M11 JUNIOR LEAGUE 3RD ROUND 29TH JUNE 2014

Congratulations to our M11 Junior League squad who went into this gala outside of the promotion zone but came through a tough afternoon of competition to win a place in the top division next year by grabbing 3rd place in the final standings.

After being relegated last season the clubs aim was always to be promoted and every swimmer who took part showed great focus and a “never give up” attitude to make sure all their efforts were to be rewarded. Well done to all our swimmers who took part in all three rounds as every point earned contributed to the overall success of the team.

A big thank you to all the coaches, our judges headed by Lesley and to Ray who helped to make this year a successful one. Now the hard work starts as we try to build on this success and keep our place in the 1st division next season.
