Two Top Girls at Erith Sprint Open
Last weekend at Crook Log swimming pool, we saw the start of the open season with the Erith Super Sunday Sprint Meet. Orpington Ojays were represented by a large number of swimmers from every section of the club. After an extremely busy warm up plus practise starts, the gala started with 50m front crawl for the younger girls. Many of the swimmers performed extremely well throughout the day, with good pb's being achieved across the board. It was good to see a lot of young swimmers who were experiencing an open meet for the first time. We hope they all enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to future events. Over the day there were some really good swims and huge pb's, Kaci Baverstock managed to knock 6 second off has 100IM time well done Kaci. There were plenty of top 6 medals collected plus 21 top 3 places. Both Amie Lawrence and Jess Herbert won 2 golds and 1 Silver, Sam Kitchener 1 gold and 1 silver, Katie Napier 1 gold, Anna Cvjetan 2 silvers, Ellie Harden 1 silver with Noah Saunders and Ben Langdown picking up a bronze each. Finally picking up Top Girl trophies at each end of the scale Abbie Saunders won 3 golds Top Girl for the 9 year old age group as well as a Kent consideration time, and Daniella Shipley won 2 golds, 1 silver, 1 bronze and Top Girl for the 16 and over age group. A very big thank you to all the coaches and swimmers who all entered.
