TRURO CITY SMASH IT AGAIN FOR AN EMPHATIC VICTORY AT THE JUNIOR INTERCLUB 2016
With a clear victory of 60 points ahead of rival clubs Truro City oozed class and confidence across 9 – 12 year old age groups at the annual Junior Interclub competition held at Penzance Leisure Centre on Saturday 16th January.
Representing Truro City Swimming Club were 9 year olds, Joshua Leigh, Wilfred Bartlett, Keira Downing, Maisie Miles,10 year olds Harry Polkinghorne, George Mitchell, Zak Clemens, Sam Poppy, Anya Hocking, Abby Martyn, Mia Penberthy, Katie Smith, India Castle 11 year olds Ben Bradley, William Dewhurst, Alex Sim, Jake Georgelin, Isabelle Leigh, Maddison Lewis, Abbie Downing, Caitlin Keaney and 12 year olds Luke Barnsley, Aaron Martyn, Mikey Pond, Thomas Trebilcock, Charlotte Drew, Laura James, Mia Rule and Hannah Stephens.
Mikey Pond and Mia Rule were chosen as Junior Captains and proudly sported their new club shirts as the team joined the procession of clubs at the start of the gala. Truro City went in as reigning champions. This year all Cornwall clubs competed in the one gala, held over two sessions and covering individual 50m stroke events and team freestyle and medley relays with the exciting boys and girls freestyle canons (involving two swimmers from each age group) starting and ending the gala. Each event had two heats and Truro City notched up an impressive amount of first places with the majority of other swims scoring highly in the top four helping to maximise points. Team spirit was excellent and every swimmer was cheered on heartily by their team mates. Coach Emily was justly proud of her juniors for giving their all and many came away with PBs which bodes well for the rapidly approaching County Championships in February.
Well done Truro City Swimming Club Juniors,
YOU ARE THE BEST IN CORNWALL.
Results will be published on the Cornwall ASA website.
