North Midlands 2018 - Weekend 1 REPORT

On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th of October Winsford Swim Team had nearly 80 swimmers travel to Macclesfield to compete in the first four sessions of the North Midlands Championships 2018 at Macclesfield Leisure Centre. The group of swimmers competing was a true mix from those swimmers just starting out in their swimming career, right the way up to our top senior national swimmers, all coming together to compete along side each other and help Winsford Swim Team to achieve great success.
Over the first weekend we gained 100 Medals in total from 39 different swimmers and we had 8 overall championship winners.
A full report will follow in two weeks time after we complete the final weekend of racing but in brief the results from our swimmers were superb. 
Winsford Swim Team achieved:
MEDALS
 
GOLD: 34 
SILVER: 32 
BRONZE: 34 
TOTAL: 100 
A tremendous start to the North Midland Championships, I am sure there is more success to come on the final weekend of action on the 20th & 21st of October.

Well Done to all of our swimmers, not only those who gained a medal or top 8 placing but to every, and I mean every, single swimmer who raced for our team and helped us as a club achieve so much over the weekend. All your efforts and support in the North Midland Championships is so very greatly appreciated. 
It was such a fun weekend with all our swimmers, coaches and team managers. I am sure the whole team from Winsford will be looking forward with tremendous excitement to the final 4 sessions of racing in two weeks time.
If there are any errors to the medal table please let us know.
Thanks
Dan.
