Diss Otters at the County Championships 2017

Diss Otters came away from this year’s County Swimming Championships with some incredible performances across the board.  Held over the last two weekends at the UEA Sportspark, swimmers from all over Norfolk competed in races from 50m to 1500m. 

Twenty six Otters took to the pool in a total of 173 individual swims which resulted in 39 podium positions first to third, 79 top six finishes and 116 top ten finishes.

Times are the name of the game and the squad hit 137 new personal best times, and this is the real benchmark that the coaches look to as it shows improvement over a period of time.

Special mentions go to Joel Clarke who won four trophies in the 16 and under championship events, Cameron Day and Barney Clarke who won events in their age group categories and also to Matthew Munnings, Matthew Tatum, Dominic Boylan, Isaac Bachu as well as Joel, Barney and Cameron who all qualified for Regional events which is the next step up the gala ladder.

The Diss Otters squad members were Sophia Pickering, Grace Greenhalf, Rosie Munnings, Cassia Miller, Thea Irvine, Alise Small, William Brown, Callum Blair, Harry Button, Barney Clarke, Matthew Munnings, Cameron Day, Isaac Bachu, Matthew Tatum, Max Brookes, Joel Clarke, Kathryn Wood, Lottie Gates, Katie Halmshaw, Dominic Boylan, Imogen Grimes, Olivia Chapman, Luella Brookes, Kara O’Dell, Ottilie Miller and Yasmin Brown.
