Cheshunt swimmers made an excellent start to the County Championships at The Inspire 50m Pool in Luton. Courtney Burke opened up the evening with her very first competitive 800m Freestyle setting a PB of 12:29.93 coming 8th in her age group. Megan Pope was next in the water swimming a very strong race setting another PB of 12:07.77 finishing 7th in her age group. Emily South went in heat 3 and showed that she is developing with every swim knocking 32 seconds off of her entry time setting yet another PB of 11:09.18.

Olivia Pawson & Tegan Wollaston were next up in the 13yrs age group. Olivia was first in heat 6. She started off strongly and was soon pulling away from the rest of the field finishing well ahead of the rest of the heat in a PB of 10:13.10. This left her as the fastest 13yr old with only 3 other swimmers in her age group all of whom were in the next heat.

Tegan was one of these swimmers and started off very strongly. By 400m she had taken a big lead and continued to pull away from the rest of the field finishing in 9:59.52 and a new PB. This saw Tegan as County Champion with Olivia close behind in second place.
