Hereford Sprint Meet

Five Monnow Swimming Club members brought home 16 medals from the Hereford Sprint Meet on Saturday 20th May. The swimmers ranging in age from 9 to 15, won ten gold, two silver and four bronze medals.

The most notable win was a silver medal for Nanci Edwards age 9, in the 200m Individual Medley – an event she had never competed in before, which consists of two lengths of each of the four strokes. She also won two golds and another silver.

Kate Jarvis, Coach said “This small dynamic team of five made an incredible impact in the pool last Saturday, with some courageous swims earning them a huge stash of medals plus some admirable PBs. I am thrilled by their excellent performance.”

This is the first time that the Club has entered this competition, which attracted swimmers from Oldbury, Keynesham, as well as City of Hereford. It won’t be the last!
