A full weekend saw 15 swimmers of the Chatteris squad head for Cambridge Parkside Pools for the Cambridge Spring Open Meet.

Star swimmers were Megan Donovan, Reece Rimpson, Tom Hanley, Jake Hoy and Harry Rayner. Coach Sadie Richardson was very pleased with all her charges, as all swam at least one personal best time.

Hanley (13) achieved regional times for his 50m front crawl, bronze medal too, and 100m breaststroke (both PB), as well as swimming PB’s for his 100m butterfly and 200m f/c, whilst Rimpson once again swam all his races in PB times, with silver for 50m breaststroke, bronze for 100m f/c, 50m butterfly and 100m breaststroke and fourth place for 50m backstroke.

Hoy got bronze medals for 100m back and 200m breaststroke and silver for 50m breaststroke, but no PB’s this time. Rayner swam seven races with PB’s in all but one and a best position of seventh in 50m butterfly, whilst Donovan (10) swam eight, from 50m back to 200m I.M., and got PB’s in all but one, with a highest position of fourth in her 50m butterfly.

Mia Tandon was pleased with her PB bronze in 200m f/c whilst regaining her club record.

Further swimmers with PB times were: Megan and Connie Denman, Riley Astley, Megan Dawson, Melissa Ablett, Kiera Simpson, Thea Hanley, Olivia Clark and Chloe Cook.
