Staffordshire at the County Team Champs

Staffordshire’s total of 377 to finish ninth last year was their biggest points tally since being relegated to the second tier of the County Team Championships in 2012.

They picked up two races wins in 2015 with Niamh Hofland and Courteney Price claiming maximum points in the 12/13 Yrs and 16/17 Yrs 100m Backstroke respectively.

Hofland moves in to the 14/15 Yrs age group for 2016, having put in some encouraging performances at this year’s British Summer Championships. She landed 800m Free and 400m IM silvers in Sheffield, as well as bronzes over 400m Free and 200m Back.

Chase swimmer Jacob Davies was second in the 12/13 Yrs 100m Back last year, and returns for this first year in the 14/15 Yrs age group.

He reached the podium across all three distances of backstroke at this year’s British Summer Champs, including gold over 50m Back.

In the oldest age group, Lewis Hodgetts was also a national medallist this summer, claiming 200m Butterfly bronze at the ASA Summer Nationals.

Meanwhile, teammate Laura Hawkins reached both the 100m and 200m Breast finals at the British Summer Nationals then claimed 50m Breast silver at the ASA Summer Nationals the following week.
