Congratulations to everybody who competed in the CCASA Intermediate Gala, great swimming, lots of medal winners and personal best times. Well done everyone! The Club would like to thank all the volunteers who helped with the hosting of the gala.
The Newquay Cormorants Open Meet and the Cornwall & West Devon League are both due to take place on the same date. Unfortunately we will not be entering the Newquay Meet as we are prioritising the Cornwall & West Devon League and do not have enough coaches and team managers to do both.
Excellent swimming at the Carn Brea & Helston Sprint Gala, recently held at Penzance. Well done everyone!
The Cornwall County Championships and Age Groups were recently held over two consecutive weekends and included four exciting days of competition. Penzance had thirty four swimmers competing, many of whom gained multiple personal best times. Lots of swimmers qualified for the finals, with medals being awarded to Jasmine Edwards (50 back, bronze), Molly Haines (100IM, 50m &100m free, 50m fly, silver, 100m fly, 200IM bronze.) Kezia Elliot (50m, 100m breast bronze), Maddie Walker (50m breast, bronze), Dylan Cole (50m fly, 200m back, bronze), Dominic Butterfield (50m fly, 100m back, silver, 50m free bronze) and Melody Roberts (50m, 100m, 200m & 400m free, 50m &100m fly, 50m & 100m back, silver, 100 & 200IM, bronze). Excellent performances by Dominic and Melody resulted in them becoming age group winners in the 11 years 50m backstroke and 15 years 200m backstroke respectively. Melody and Molly also placed in the top six in the Junior Championships with Melody gaining a further 10 medals and Molly five. Outstanding swimming by Connor Keeler earned him three Senior Championship titles (50m, 100m and 200m back), as well as an additional three silver medals and one bronze. Connor was also placed in the top six for two further events. Other finalists were Daisy Rixon, Emily Stevens, Lucia Davy, Oscar Beckerleg, Isabella Davy, Richard Elis, Will Frost, Murray Stevenson, Thomas Morice, Aaron Stevens, Shannon O’Connell. A special mention goes to Charlotte Bell, who finished joint sixth fastest in the 50m freestyle heats. Charlotte had to compete in a further two swim-offs before securing a place in the final. A fantastic set of results, well done everyone!
