Dorset at the County Team Champs
Dorset have become something of a yo-yo team at the County Team Championships in recent years, having gained promotion to the top flight in 2006, 2008, 2011, 2014 as well as last year.
There were plenty of positives to take from last year’s performance, with four swimmers bringing home maximum points.
Jasmine Holmes handed them the ideal start with a win in the 16/17 Yrs 100m Free before Harriet Perfect lived up to her name with maximum points in the 16/17 Yrs 100m Back.
Jacob Peters had more than a second in hand on the field as he won the 16/17 Yrs 100m Fly while Ella Chown was nearly two seconds clear for the same event in the youngest 12/13 Yrs age group.
Poole swimmer Peters will surely be a tough nut to crack as he aims to repeat last year’s result in Division One. He lowered his long course 100m Fly PB to a British 17 Yrs Age Group record 53.32 at the World Junior Championships in August.
Bournemouth Collegiate School’s Chown also returns for 2017, stepping up an age group into the 14/15 Yrs category.
Peters’ teammate Jasmine McCrea enjoyed a successful meet in Sheffield at the 2017 British Summer Champs, winning butterfly and freestyle medals over both 50m and 100m.
Bournemouth Collegiate School’s Kayla Van Der Merwe was also a multiple medallist at the same meet, winning 200m Breast gold and 50m Breast bronze.
