Fantastic Start To 2019

The first meet of the year was held at Harrogate Hydro for the Harrogate Janus Meet at the beginning of January. It was medals galore all over the weekend, at the two day meet for the BSC competitive squad, bringing home more than 20 medals in the Gold Silver and Bronze category. Youngsters Izabel Young and Olivia Stafford were mightily pleased with themselves, achieving medals in the Under 9 girls age group.

It was then onto The Kirklees & District Championship gala 1 for 2019, held at Huddersfield leisure Centre. More than 30 Brighouse swimmers competed at the event, showing their talent in the pool. This was rewarded with medals in the top and ribbons in the top 8. BSC brought home four trophies too! Trophy winners Jamie Haines, Alicia Howells, Daisy Doherty and Oliver Blamires were delighted with themselves as was Head Coach Brian Smart.

It was the first ever competition for many of our younger swimmers who gave it their all in the pool. They competed in individual events and team events and did Brighouse proud.

Our masters swimmers Steve Price and Martin Squire also brought a couple medals each back to Brighouse, which were very well deserved.

After a great start the year, training continues with more competitions over the next few weeks and the upcoming Yorkshire Championships to look forward to.
