Masters Counties

Lincoln Vulcans were represented at the Masters County Championship on Sunday by an eight-strong team of swimmers. The first event was the mens 100m IM with a strong swim from our first competitor Ian Paulger, followed by Dave, JP, Alex and Liam. First up for the ladies IM were Jo and Kerry, followed in the next heat by Sarah.

Over the course of the 6 events (100 IM, 50 Butterfly, 50 Breaststroke, 100 Freestyle, 50 Backstroke and 50 Freestyle) there were many strong swims, pb's and even more medals!! Following these was everybody's favourite events - the 4x25m mixed IM and 4x25m mixed Freestyle relays. Unfortunately due to a lack of younger swimmers we were only able to field a team in the 160 - 199 years and 200 + years age groups, meaning Alex and Liam were not able to take part.

It was an enjoyable, friendly, fast and furious afternoon with barely time to snatch a jelly baby and get some remedial physio between races.

Lincoln Pentaqua and Louth swimming clubs again fielded a large number of competitors, finishing 1st and 2nd respectively, with Lincoln Vulcans coming in a strong 3rd place and 1st amongst the smaller teams. Everyone had a great time and are looking forward to competing next year, hopefully with a larger and stronger team.

Thank you to Jo Highfield for sorting out the relay teams, our coach Pete Manley and honorary assistant coach (and chief water bottle filler) Nyah Anderton.
