Cambridgeshire at the County Team Champs

Cambridgeshire slipped down to 11th in the Division Two table last time out, having finished just 21 points shy of promotion in seventh two years ago.

While they didn’t pick up a race win on the day, Jamie Scholes (16/17 Yrs 100m Back) and Jade Goode (12/13 Yrs 100m Fly) both touched second in their respective events.

Leah Roughan and Mia Leech were the last Cambridgeshire swimmers to claim maximum points, winning the 16/17 Yrs and 12/13 Yrs 100m Breast respectively in 2015.

That record will surely come to an end this year with a number of Cambs swimmers at the top of the rankings across all three age groups.

Peterborough’s Scholes returns for a second year in the top age group, having won 200m Backstroke bronze at the British Summer Champs.

Teammate Rachel Wellings will also compete in the 100m Free and 100m Back in the top age group, having won 200m Back silver at the same meet this July.

City of Cambridge swimmer Jonathon Adam took his 100m Back PB down to 58.19 earlier in October, and could be tough to beat in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Back. The 15-year old won 50m Back gold and 100m Back bronze at the Summer Champs earlier this year.

Teammate Jake Moxham won 100m Free bronze at the same event, and comes into the 14/15 Yrs 100m Free with the fastest entry time.

Amelia Monaghan – like her Peterborough teammate Wellings – competed at the European Junior Championships earlier this summer, and could have a big say in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Breast while Cambridge’s Oliver Cashin is ranked third on paper in the boys’ equivalent.

In the youngest age group, James Quinn (100m Breast), Ella McGhie (100m Back) and Connor Walker (100m Fly) all hold competitive entry times and may well hold the key to Cambridgeshire making a serious promotion push.
