For two weeks in January and another two weeks in February 25 Saxon Crown swimmers took part in the Kent 2017 championships. Kent is known for having one of the highest standards of county championships in the country.
We are proud to have a 2x times county champion, Evie Davis, who won the 13 y/old 50m and 100m Freestyle for girls and Ione Buchanan who won the 16y/old 50m Backstroke for girls. And a big well done to Joshua Monaghan-Coombs who won three golds and a silver in the disability classification races.
Congratulations too to Mateusz Szopinski who was second in the 16 y/old 100m and 200m boys butterfly and Luke Douglas who grabbed three silvers in the 16 y/old 50m Freestyle, 50m Breaststroke and 50m Butterfly for boys. Luke was also 3rd in the 16 y/old 200m Individual Medley for boys and Tony Abazie gained a great bronze in the 14y/old 50m Freestyle for boys.
Our swimmers swam a total of 7 other finals, with Evie swimming 3 finals, Pharell Nimoh swimming 2 finals, Miga Jian swimming in the 50m backstroke final and Zachary Kirkman swimming in the 50m backstroke final.
Also on the 1st Sunday of March, we had the Kent team championships where Saxon Crown had 14 teams along all the age groups. We made it to five finals, against stiff opposition, with the 13/14 girls making it to two, 13/14 boys to one and also the Junior Boys and Girls to one final each.
Well done to all swimmers who made it to the Kents, we are all very proud of you.
