Team Spirit runs high at Buxton Swimming Club
Great fun was had by all at Buxton Swimming Club’s annual Presentation Night at the Old Club House last Saturday. 2018 has been an outstanding year for the club following the appointment of Liam McWee as Head Coach and Verity Mycock as Lessons Coordinator. Successes include the winning of the Crusader division with the club moving up a division next year, record numbers of swimmers turning out for open meets and 11 new club records from Charlie Boam, Eleanor Turner and Louis & Oliver Ecob.
Hundreds of medals and 70+ trophies were given out to all ages from 7 years upwards.
- Top Boy and Top Girl of the Club Championships were named as Mathew Foreman & Chloe Montgomery-White, with 8 gold medals going to Chloe Montgomery White, Isobel Stokes and Mia Stokes & 7 going to Charlie Boam & Mathew Foreman.
- Top Boy and Top Girl of the Novice Gala were Daniel Fitzgerald and Anwen Williams with Annabelle Montgomery-White picking up the Endeavour award.
Trophies were presented by Paralympian Track Cyclist Anthony Kappes MBE, who brought his medals from London & Beijing to show to the swimmers.
The swimmers let their hair down on the dance floor and showed their team spirit in the annual ‘Human Pyramid’ competition, with the girls once again showing the boys a thing or two. The boys got their own back on the karaoke however, thanks to Finn Hornsey-Saunders fabulous rendition of George Ezra’s ‘Budapest’.
