Lisa leads the way

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

SATEL­LITES’ head coach Lisa Atkin­son has been named the Cheshire Sports Coach of the Year.

Lisa, who has been with Satel­lites for five years, has worked hard to build a squad with a strong work ethic and a be­lief that they can win.

She re­ceived her award from Olympic gym­nast Beth Twed­dle at the cer­e­mony, held at Tat­ton Park’s Ten­ant’s Hall.

This year has seen Satel­lites swim­mers break­ing Bri­tish records, qual­i­fy­ing for in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions and na­tional cham­pi­onships and win­ning seven gold, four sil­ver and two bronze medals at the re­gional cham­pi­onships.

Lisa is cur­rently pre­par­ing six of the club’s swim­mers for the Na­tion­als in Sh­effield at the end of July and early Au­gust.
