Kent at the County Team Champs

Kent secured their best result in the history of the Championships 12 months ago, winning bronze behind County Team Champs giants Yorkshire and Lancashire.

The county’s strength in depth was underlined by the fact that they didn’t pick up a single race win on the day.

The Mixed 6x50m Freestyle Relay quartet came closest to claiming maximum points, finishing second in the final event of the day. As a result, Tom Leman and Harry Rennolls are the county’s last individual race winners with victories in 2015.

Leman has every chance of claiming maximum points for the second time in three years as he goes in to the 14/15 Yrs 100m Breaststroke. The RTW Monson swimmer holds the second fastest entry time, was fifth in the race 12 months ago, and has since picked up 15 Yrs 200m Breaststroke bronze at this year’s British Summer Champs.

Leman’s younger sister Anna comes in with a similar profile, having won 100m Breast bronze at the 2017 British Summer Champs and ranked third fastest on paper in the 14/15 Yrs event.

The breaststroke events could well be profitable for Kent, who hold the fastest entries in the girls’ youngest and oldest age group.

RTW Monson’s Annabel Guye-Johnson has gone from strength to strength during the long course season, culminating in World Junior bronze over 200m Breaststroke at the end of August. She could be the one to beat in the 17/18 Yrs 100m Breast.

Meanwhile, another RTW Monson swimmer, Jemimah Berkeley, has the fastest entry time in the 12/13 Yrs 100m Breast, having landed silvers over both 50m and 100m Breast at this year’s British Summer Champs.

Kent hold plenty of chances for big points among the other strokes. Bromley’s Imogen Meers was a Summer Champs medallist over 50m and 100m Back while Beckenham’s Tiegan Child is second fastest on paper in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Free, having won 800m Free gold in July.

The county could also hold a few aces in the boys’ 12/13 Yrs age group. Thanet’s Ali Setterfield is competitively ranked in both the 100m Free and 100m Fly while Sevenoaks swimmer Louis Hayes is third fastest entry for the 100m Back.
