Records tum­ble as Ot­ters run riot

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

SADIE Lu­cas broke four more County Cham­pi­onship swim­ming records as a young Chal­font Ot­ters squad punched above their weight once more in the fi­nal round.

Not only did Lu­cas set new county times in the 200m back­stroke and 50m back­stroke, she was also part of the Chal­font teams who did like­wise in the 13-and-un­der 4x100m freestyle re­lay and 13&U med­ley re­lay.

Olivia Lee, Daniella Hoy­land and Eleanor Martin made up the rest of the freestyle and med­ley teams, the lat­ter smash­ing the pre­vi­ous record by an as­ton­ish­ing seven sec­onds.

Lu­cas also picked up 100m and 200m in­di­vid­ual med­ley golds in her age group while Max Tul­loch added to the gold rush with wins in the 12-years 100m and 200m in­di­vid­ual med­leys, 50m front crawl and 50m but­ter­fly. There was a fi­nal gold for Sam Clark in the 200m back­stroke too.

Clark, Lee, Tul­loch and Harry Gibb took home sil­vers as well with bronzes for Hoy­land, Lu­cas, Clark, Gibb, Matthew Al­dred, Libby But­ton, Zebi- na Ge­orge and the 11&U boys’ freestyle re­lay team. Al­to­gether, the Ot­ters bagged 33 medals and 74 top-eight fin­ishes and from both week­ends, they took 56 medals and achieved 131 top-eight fin­ishes.

Gibb, Fred­die Lu­cas, Vic­to­ria Da­ley and Ara­bella Durkin are all now in the top 10 in the re­gional rank­ings for their age group, while in the county ag­gre­gate ta­bles – which tally points for all swim­mers, ir­re­spec­tive of age – Sadie Lu­cas fin­ished fifth among the girls and Clark 11th of the boys.
