This year we had 3 swimmers at the Regional BAGCAT championships Josh, in his 2nd appearance plus Tolu and Noah who were competing for the first time. Both Josh and Tolu, qualified in all the distances for their specialist strokes and Noah had qualified for the 11 and 12 year age bracket (a double year of qualification) in the 200 Breast, a fantastic achievement as he’s not 11 until September. 

Competing at that level can be daunting at first but all three settled well and performed maturely, giving everything they had in all their swims. We didn’t reach any finals, a bit disappointing as we believed there was a good chance in a few events, but we continued improving in the rankings as you can see below:
