Is just starting out on her para swimming pathway and making her name known straight away!. The 11 year old is a member of Brighouse Swimming Club and has been participating in competitions for a couple of years alongside her team mates at the club. She has recently received her physical classification for para swimming and has competed in two para meets already, coming away with new pb times in all of her events, as well as a silver medal and two bronze medals.
Coach Brian Smart went along with Evie to the Liverpool Aquatics Centre to participate in the National Junior Para Swimming Championships 2019 and most they recently travelled to Darwen, last weekend to compete in the Regional Para-Swimming Championships 2019. Due to her speed and technique in the
pool, Evie has now qualified for British Para-Swimming International Meet in Glasgow in April and the competition will feature as the British leg of the World Para Swimming World Series.
Evie is thoroughly enjoying her swimming and is training hard for the upcoming meet in Glasgow. All her teammates at BSC are very proud of her achievements and wish her every success on her para swimming journey.
Kirklees & District Gala 5 March 17
Fantastic results this weekend from Team BSC. Our swimmers came away with some fabulous results. Youngster Henry Priestly smashed his way through the 9 year old 100 IM winning first place and the Gold Medal. Open swimmers Imogen Gee, Cameron Price and Ben Bottomley brought the first place trophies home to Brighouse after winning their events.
A great performance from the Brighouse team with many swimmers winning finalist ribbons and medals in the top three. Coach Brian Smart was yet again delighted with the performance of his swimmers. Great swimming all round from the young ones to the older ones.
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.
