Suffolk at the County Team Champs
After a close shave with relegation in 2015, Suffolk found the comfort of mid-table in last year’s Champs, finishing 12th on 290 points.
Thomas Clare and Finn Jeffery were the top race finishers for Suffolk in 2016, touching second fastest in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Back and 12/13 Yrs 100m Breast respectively.
The last Suffolk swimmers to take maximum points were Amie Philpot, Mia Maspers and Rebecca Sherwin, who all finished on top – Philpot in two events – two years ago.
Team Ipswich pair Maspers and Clare could well have their sights set on another big points haul, lining up with competitive entry times in their events.
Maspers, who won the British Summer Champs 50m Free title, is the third fastest on paper for the 14/15 Yrs 100m Free.
Clare has the same ranking in the 16/17 Yrs 100m Back, and won bronzes over 100m and 200m Backstroke at this year’s Summer Champs.
West Suffolk’s 14-year old Angharad Evans will be hoping to make an impact on her County Team Champs debut, coming into the event as British Summer Champs gold medallist over 50m and 100m Breaststroke.
Stowmarket’s Lija Radziunaite also reached the podium in Sheffield this summer, claiming 50m Backstroke bronze in the 15 Yrs age group, and could complete a fierce girls’ 4x50m Medley Relay quartet in the middle age group.
