A SMALL team of City of Bradford Swimming Club members were rewarded with a good medal haul and some personal best times in the Nova Level 1 Meet at the Harvey Hadden Sports Village, Nottingham.

Gold medals eluded the team but 14-year-old Rebecca Dunn from Guiseley led the charge for the silver medals.

Her medals came in the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke.

She then went on to clinch bronze in the 200m individual medley and fifth place in the 50m butterfly to round of a great weekend’s swimming.

Fifteen-year-old Sam Akers from Silsden was in medal winning form as he took third place in the 1500m freestyle and then narrowly missed out on a medal in the shorter 400m freestyle finishing in fourth place in a time of 4.32.49.

Swimming as a 15-year-old Fraser Buxton finished in fifth and sixth places in the 50m and 100m breaststroke respectively and also came just outside the top ten in the 50m butterfly finishing in 11th place.

Next in line was Ella Jones swimming in the 17 years and over events.

Jones secured two top ten finishes in the 50m and 200m backstroke events.

Ilkley’s Holly Vasey missed out on the medals but swam a well-paced race to claim 10th place in the 14 years 100m butterfly.

She also had top 20 finishes in the 50m butterfly, 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle.

Now swimming in the 17 years and over age group John-Luke Hutchinson finished in 10th place in the 50m backstroke and went on to have top 20 placings in the 100m freestyle and 200m individual medley.

Thirteen-year-old Eva Gray from Askwith also rounded off a good weekend for City with a tenth place finish in the 50m backstroke and sixteenth place in the 50m freestyle.

All swimmers train on the Bradford Aquatics Competition programme under the guidance of coaches Andy Pearce and Sarah Fisher.
