Isabella Renwick and Ellie Mitchell were selected by Hertfordshire ASA to join the county team on Sunday 5th July to compete in the annual inter counties east region Competition against Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Bedfordshire.
Isabella swam in the 11/12 age group and she was the youngest member of the Herts girls team, and will be able to swim in this age group next year as well. Izzy was very excited to compete for the county for the first time and she swam in the girls 50m freestyle relay team as well as swimming the breaststroke leg in a vey exciting mixed relay team. Ellie swam in the 13/14 age group competing as an individual in the 100M backstroke, she dominated this race from the starting blocks and turned into the final length with a convincing lead, she won the race in a 103.13 and it was a SC NQT for the winter champs. Ellie also swam the backstroke leg in her age group girls relay team and again in the age 17 and over medley team where she recorded a split of 29.84, which is a Pb. Her final swim was in her age group girls freestyle relay team where she swam the final leg in a nail biting finish to take the win from Essex who had entered the water first.
Both girls enjoyed the atmosphere of competing for the county and were captained by Jess Jackson from Hatfield and managed by Geoff Wood from Berkhamsted.
Daniel Chada, Amy Young & Cira Fletcher were also selected but were unable to swim.
