Berkshire & South Bucks at the County Team Champs
Berkshire & South Buckinghamshire’s 12-year stay in the top flight came to end last year as they dropped down to Division Two in 18th place.
The South East county’s top result 12 months ago came from breaststroker Darya Poma Kostik, finishing third in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Breast.
Maximum points have proved elusive in recent years, with Ellie Cowan the only swimmer to claim an individual race win since 2012, with 12/13 Yrs 100m Breast victory two years ago.
After missing last year’s event, Cowan is back in the squad for 2017 and looks competitively ranked in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Breast off a short course PB of 1:11.20. The Wycombe swimmer reached the British Summer Champs podium with 200m IM bronze earlier this year.
Maidenhead’s Poma Kostik moves up to the 16/17 Yrs 100m Breast and comes in with the second fastest entry time on paper.
Berkshire & South Bucks can turn to a European Junior champion in the boys’ 16/17 Yrs age group, with Maidenhead’s Tom Dean – gold medallist over 200m IM and silver medallist over 400m IM in Israel this year – set to compete.
They also have Wycombe’s James Eddy in the top age group; a 50m Back silver medallist at the British Summer Champs who holds high ranked entry times over both 100m Free and 100m Back.
While Wycombe swimmer Emilia Sansome’s British Summer Champs medal this year came over 800m Free, she comes in with entry times in the top three for both 100m Free and 100m Back, and will be hard to peg back if she can lower her 60.65 PB in the latter.
Amersham’s Jamie Owen could also bring in some big points in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Breast, ranked second on paper with his short course PB of 1:09.02.
