BUCS Trophy Final

On the last weekend of 2nd term, ten swimmers went up to Sheffield to compete for the second year in a row at BUCS Teams Finals.

Last year, the club were promoted from division three to division two. This year, thanks to a fantastic performance in the heats in November in Norwich, the swimmers were going into the final confident they would be promoted to division one.

The competition was undeniably tough but the despite finishing in the bottom half of the field in most swims, we were at least comfortably beating Durham in lane 8 next door. Special mentions should go out to Ryan and Tiffany, both of whom won their 50m fly swims. Ryan pulled the third fastest 50m fly in the whole meet (including division one) with his time of 25.25, only beaten by the swimmers from Loughborough and Edinburgh.

We finished in sixth place with a glorious fifteen club records (out of 24 events). The same to where we placed last year but in the next division up – so this is just great.

Well done team, and thanks to Bartek and Fergus for coming to support.
