Staffordshire at the County Team Champs

Staffordshire’s total of 385 to finish seventh last year was their biggest points tally since being relegated to the second tier of the County Team Championships in 2012.

Jacob Davies took the county’s only race win in 2016, landing maximum points in the final individual event of the day, the 14/15 Yrs 100m Backstroke.

Staffordshire could pick up more big points in the backstroke events this year, with Royal Wolverhampton School’s Niamh Hofland ranked fifth fastest on entry times in the 14/15 Yrs age group.

Wolverhampton’s Jessica Banks also goes in the fastest heat of the top age group, while youngsters Ben Finney and Abby Shepherd have competitive entry times in the 12/13 Yrs.

Royal Wolverhampton School swimmer Alicia Dingle’s PB of 58.19 puts her in the mix for top points in the girls’ 14/15 Yrs 100m Freestyle while teammate Laura Hawkins won’t have to improve much on her PB of 1:11.50 to be in the mix for maximum points in the 16/17 Yrs 100m Breast.
