Atlantis at The National Inter Counties.
21st October 2014
Lauren, Yaz, Lily, Beth and Andrew at Ponds Forge.
Last weekend saw five Atlantis swimmers selected for the Sussex ASA team to compete at The National Inter County Championships at Ponds Forge Swimming Centre in Sheffield. Swimming in Division 2, Sussex put on a very competitive display in the events across the 3 age groups of 12-13 years, 14-15 years and 16-17 years. With the best young swimmers from across Britain competing, it certainly was an inspiring day, leading to many outstanding swims from the Sussex team. From Atlantis, both Lily Davis and Andrew Kershaw achieved 3rd place finishes in their events (100m breaststroke and 100m backstroke respectively) whilst Beth Britton, Yaz Hooker and Lauren Pedel all swam well to help Sussex to a final 7th place in a league of 18 Counties. Devon were the runaway winners, with Worcestershire in second place.
