Worcestershire at the County Team Champs

After the highs of promotion in 2014 and the lows of relegation the following year, Worcestershire had the agony of fifth place in last season’s County Team Champs, missing out on promotion by a mere 10 points.

While there were plenty of top five finishes, the county didn’t pick up any race wins in 2016, meaning Brittany Horton remains the last swimmer to collect maximum points for Worcestershire some three years ago.

Having finished runners-up five times since 2001, it will be no surprise to see Worcestershire again challenging at the summit of Division Two.

Matthew Richards could be the county’s trump card in 2017, having won five individual golds in the 15 Yrs age group at this year’s British Summer Champs.

The Royal Wolverhampton School swimmer has taken his 100m Fly PB down to 58.89 already this month, while his PB 1:00.30 puts him among the top contenders in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Back.

William Gearey was also a medallist at the British Summer Champs, picking up 13/14 Yrs 50m Butterfly bronze. The Worcester swimmer is the second fastest 14-year old on entry times in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Free.

In the girls’ 14/15 Yrs 100m Free, Olivia Fletcher’s PB of 58.06 puts her in the mix for a points haul, while Sam Osborne and Alisha Stephenson are fourth fastest on entry times for the 16/17 Yrs and 14/15 Yrs 100m Fly respectively.
