Yorkshire at the County Team Champs
Yorkshire clinched their 14th National County Team Championships win in 2016, amassing a huge 544 points to top the podium for the first time since 2001.
Darcy Deakin and Elliot Clogg handed the White Rose the perfect start to the day with victories in the opening two 16/17 Yrs 100m Freestyle races, while Jason Robson (100m Breast) and Tia Ward (100m Back) added victories in the 12/13 Yrs age group.
Yorkshire added maximum points in another four relay events, including the ultimate Mixed 6x50m Freestyle Relay.
While Deakin and Clogg were competing at their last County Team Champs, Robson and Ward both return, stepping up into the 14/15 Yrs age group.
York City Baths swimmer Robson won 100m Breaststroke silver at this year’s British Summer Champs, and is the third fastest entry for the 100m Breast.
Meanwhile, City of Leeds’ Ward looks set to take lane four in the fastest heat of the 14/15 Yrs 100m Back. The 14-year old picked up 200m Back gold and 400m Free silver at this year’s British Summer Champs.
Ward’s teammate Rebecca Clynes was second in the 14/15 Yrs 100m Breast last year and will have another go in the middle age group, ranked second on entry times.
Yorkshire have also added City of Sheffield’s Lily Boseley to their squad, who has won maximum points at County Team Champs for Nottingham in the past, and finished second in last year’s 14/15 Yrs 100m Back.
Sheffield’s British Summer Champs 100m and 200m Back champion Charlie Brown could be one to watch in the top age group, while Sheffield’s Alice Thickett, Kate Clifton, Reuben Visda and Amy Bell also reached the podium at this summer’s benchmark meet.
Ellesmere College Titans’ Ned Sharp won a hat-trick of British Summer Champs medals this year, while York City’s Harry Devlin comes into the 16/17 Yrs 100m Breast as the fastest entry.
