  Cheshunt Peanuts Swim Strong
Posted By : Cheshunt SC On 2015-06-13 01:25:00
Saturday 6th June 2015 saw our youngsters take part in the 2nd round of the Peanuts League where they were up against Harpenden, Hitchin, Hertsmere Flyers, Hatfield B and Ware. The competition was strong and Cheshunt team finished 5th on the night, where just 5 points separated 3rd and 6th place!

During an exciting race an excellent last 10 metres saw Aaron Pickard pick up our first win of the night, boys U/11 Freestyle, with a time of 16.55. This success was followed by Ela Norton, girls U/12 Breaststroke (20.55) and Emily Lush, girls U/13 50m Backstroke, (35.84) and the 50m Freestyle, (31.29), both girls having comfortable wins. 

2nd place finishes came from  Jake Evans, boys 9 Years Freestyle, (17.52), Zane Batt, boys U/13 Backstroke, (37.00), Ben Crossman, boys 9 Years Backstroke, (24.35) & Sinran Misir, girls 9 Years Breaststroke, (25.56). Just missing out on first place were our 8 x 25m Squadron team of Sinran Misir, Jake Evans, Dayna Shepperson, Aaron Pickard, Millie Clarke, Taylor Coe, Emily Lush and Zane Batt who competed in a very exciting race.

 

Other good swims, showing their hard work in training, came from Millie Clarke, girls U/12 Backstroke, (19.18), Taylor Coe, boys U/12 Backstroke, (19.61), Anastasios Karameros, boys U/13 Breaststroke, (45.55) & Butterfly, (42.18), Ben Brookman, boys U/12 Freestyle, (17.18). Together with Dayna Shepperson, girls U/11 Breaststroke, (25.04), Victoria Townsend, girls 9 Years Freestyle, (22.78), Josh Horner, boys 9 Years Breaststroke, (31.64), Evie Grattan, girls U/13 Butterfly, (46.46), Emilia Gitev, girls U/11 Butterfly, (27.29) & Jack Pym, boys U/12 Breaststroke, (23.61)

There was also improvement on times from the previous round for Aimee Williams, girls U/13 Freestyle, (16.81), Ashlee Willett, girls 9 Years Backstroke, (27.63), Rosie Batt, girls U/12 Butterfly, (19.33) Hugo Connolly Harding, boys U/13 Freestyle, (35.53) Tara Safavi-Zadeh, girls U/11 Backstroke, (23.46), William Brookman, boys U/11 Backstroke, (24.01) & Rohan Misir, boys U/11 Breaststroke, (24.21).

Assistant Head Coach Richard Walker said “It was a good night overall from the swimmers and the final placing on the night did not reflect how they swam. Some errors and disqualifications set us back in what was a tight finish between 6th and 3rd place. Looking towards the 3rd round on the 4th July, with a full team to choose from I am confident that we will be able to improve a lot more”.

So….thank you very much for giving up your time, it really is very much appreciated.  It’s fantastic that we were able to again raise the profile of the club and we have had lots of enquiries from people interested in our lessons and joining the squads too.

CURRENT COMMITTEE MEMBERS

Chairman - Paul Wollaston

Vice Chairman – Mark Nelson

Secretary – Suzanne Bailey

Treasurer - Karen Armitage

Vice Treasurer – Jenny Griffin

Head Coach - Paul Wollaston

Social/Fundraising Secretary - Vacant

Welfare Officer – Evelyn Pope

Club Champs Coordinator - Clare Pawson

ASA Registration Officer – Sophie Lush

Tadpole Coordinator - Ryan James

Nomination of officials need to be with Suzanne by 14th June 2015.

Click HERE for the nomination form.

As a club we do rely on the goodwill and help of parents.  Currently the Social/Fundraising Secretary position is vacant and would welcome parents who are willing to help to talk to any of the committee.  There are a lot of things that need to be done behind the scenes and the more parents who are willing to help then the better it will be for the swimmers.

We are aware that the committee is made up of parents of older swimmers and it would be good to see parents of younger swimmers eventually continuing the job they do in running the club.  With this in mind we are particularly looking for a parent of a younger swimmer to join the committee as a Junior Squad Rep, someone to liaise between the committee and parents, to distribute and collect forms.  Please speak to a committee member or email Suzanne at secretary@cheshuntsc.co.uk if you think you could commit to this role.
