Derby Excel swimmers compete at Junior Grand Prix and Masters events

Derby Excel Committee

Derby Excel swimmers competed at Junior Grand Prix and Masters events last weekend - show-casing the huge span of swimmers ages across our club! 

First the Masters were in action at the ever popular Etwall Masters event, held at Alfreton. It was a very enjoyable event, with some impressive swims from our most experienced members. Derbyshire ASA President Andy Hall was in attendance presenting trophies and medals to the winners. 

By contrast, our very youngest novice swimmers were also in the water, competing at the second round of the Junior Grand Prix at Matlock. Unfortunately the original event was postponed due to Storm Babet, so this was R2 on the R3 date, with R3 being cancelled. Our swimmers did brilliantly well, and showed real progression since R1 back in September. 

Well done to everyone who competed at the JGP but especially Arthur Flint, who finished joint first in the 10 year old category and Jonah Hawkesworth who was Top Boy in the 9 year old category. Congratulations to you both!
