Essex at the County Team Champs
Former champions Essex consolidated their top flight status last year, having won promotion to Division One in 2015.
Romford Town’s Lewis Binning was the county’s only maximum points winner 12 months ago, taking the touch in the 12/13 Yrs 100m Butterfly as well as finishing fourth fastest in the 100m Breast.
Binning returns to step up into the 14/15 Yrs age group for this year’s Championships while Basildon & Phoenix’s James Cooper – who grabbed a first place two years ago – is also part of a strong boys’ 14/15 Yrs squad.
Essex have a number of British Summer Champs medallists to turn to in the girls’ events, not least Borough of Waltham Forest’s Emily Iley, who holds the fastest entry time in the 12/13 Yrs 100m Back.
Colchester’s Sophie Freeman won 13/14 Yrs 50m Butterfly gold at this year’s British Summer Champs while Basildon & Phoenix swimmer Macy Lawrence claimed bronze in the 15 Yrs 50m Free.
