Wisbech Swimming Club heads to Thetford for Round 4 of the Fenland Junior League

A team of 20 swimmers from Wisbech traveled to Thetford for Round 4 of the Fenland Junior League.

This was the first time the majority of the team had visited this pool, while a few members were missing – so there were a few different additions to the team.

There were swimmers who were in older groups, but they all swam incredibly well.

Although not all of them won all of their races, they gained valuable points for the team total.

There were also some impressive personal bests during the day, with many swimmers achieving improvements of between two and eight seconds over a 50 meter run.

24 personal bests went to Harry McClure (3), Harrison Otter (3), George Warby (2), Isabella Burton (2), Holly Smith (2), Lily Wright (2), Harry Wilkshire (2), Madison Hicks , Jake Trundle, Luke Wilson, Grace Rayner, Esa Condon, Poppy Ryan, Sam Clements and Ebony Smith.

18 first places went to Luke Wilson (2), Holly Smith (2), Esa Condon (2), Madison Hicks (2), Esmai Smith (2), Lily Wright (2), Harrison Otter (2), Ebony Smith (2), Harry Wilkshire and Poppy Ryan.

Unusually, no live announcements were made throughout the evening due to technical issues – and this caused swimmers to try even harder as they did not know where they were placed.

These overnight issues meant there were a few days of tense waiting for the outcome. It was worth the wait for Wisbech, however, who again won on the night.

This means they have won all four rounds so far. They are currently ranked top of the league.

This takes the team to the A final in September for one final round.
