Derbyshire at the County Team Champs

Derbyshire are back in Division Two for the 2017 Champs, having ended their 10-year spell in the top tier by finishing 17th last season.

Imogen Clark lead by example at her final County Team Champs, taking maximum points for the second consecutive season in the 16/17 Yrs 100m Breaststroke. Clark was also part of the girls’ 16/17 Yrs 4x50m Medley Relay quartet who came home fastest in 2016.

City of Derby’s Gregory Butler has the fastest entry time in this year’s 16/17 Yrs 100m Breast, while teammate William Foster is ranked fourth on paper for the 100m Free in the top age group, having won bronze at this year’s Swim England National Summer Meet.

Another Derby swimmer, Sophie Yendell, could be the one to beat in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Fly. Yendell was third overall – and the fastest 14-year old – 12 months ago, and has the fastest entry time.

She also won a couple of sprint medals at this year’s British Summer Champs, taking 50m Fly gold as well as 50m Free silver.

Derventio’s Mia Slevin took her long course 100m Free PB down to 58.55 at this year’s European Youth Olympic Festival, and looks set to challenge for major points across two events in the 14/15 Yrs age group.

Meanwhile, Derventio’s Jacob Whittle has top entry times in both the 100m Free and 100m Back for the 12/13 Yrs age group, and could prove a solid points earner at his second County Team Champs.
