Results from round 3 of the 2017 Kent Junior League have been published and are available here (requires web user login)

 

Sevenoaks Swimming Club A team won the Kent Junior League for the second year running and for the fourth time in last six years.   They competed against Thanet ‘A’, Bromley, Beckenham ‘A’, Barking & Dagenham, Black Lion.

The squad was hampered by a schools national final at the London Aquatic Centre in the afternoon which required a hectic dash for many swimmers across to Beckenham for the KJL.  The team are indebted to Daisy Widdowson who stepped up at the last minute to deputise in Event one for a swimmer caught in traffic.

Sevenoaks put in a dominate performance against arch rivals Thanet and a hugely improved Bromley team

Final results on the day were Sevenoaks 229, Bromley 214, Thanet 205, Beckenham 190, Barking & Dagenham 124, Black Lion.

Sevenoaks Swimming club hosted round one of the Kent Junior League 2017 at the Leisure Centre on Saturday 10th June.  The KJL is the leading team competition for 13 years and under in the county.  The Sevenoaks A team were last year’s winners and B team are newly promoted to the premier division. The fixture included both Sevenoaks A & B teams, Beckenham A, Royal Tunbridge Wells Monson A, and Shepway A.

The A team were seeded in top position and quickly justified this  rating with a string of first and seconds places.  Amelia Childs and Louis Hayes shone in the flagship 200m IM events with Childs winning in a time that places her 25th in Britain and Hayes recording a time which makes him 14th in Britain.

Amongst so many brilliant performances and personal bests special mention goes to 10 year old Eva Okaro who produced astonishingly quick times in 50m freestyle (28.50 secs) and 50m butterfly (31.25 secs) . Both these times top the British rankings by some margin.

The B team performed above expectation and did a fantastic job to finish a superb 3rd place. The whole team performed superbly and demonstrated the depth and quality that Sevenoaks currently has. There were many great performances and personal bests, but special mention must go to Oliver Hamilton who was the only swimmer from the B team to beat a Sevenoaks A team swimmer. In the 12/u 100m breaststroke, Oliver smashed out an 8 second PB to go 1.27.43.  Other swimmers that PBed were Isabella Munoz, Ameila Tovey, Katie Vowell, Ben Strebel, Martha Roberts, Thomas Hunt, Verner Krynauw, Samriddhi Das, Isabelle MacKenzie, Daisy Widdowson, Emma Noble, George Rehbein, Zack Murphy and Edward Smith.

Every single race was fought to the last stroke. This was best demonstrated by Emma Noble who produced a superb last 50 in the Girls 12/u 4x50 Freestyle relay. Emma dived in 5th and fought to the bitter end to finish 2nd! All the swimmers demonstrated this toughness and it was a major factor towards the superb finishing result.

The final scores were Sevenoaks A (1st) 272.5, Beckenham A 236, Sevenoaks B 157, RTW Monson A 149.5, Maidstone 136, Shepway A 115

The coaches wish to thank all the helpers and volunteers as these galas could not happen without your support. The next round of the Kent Junior League is 9th September 2017.
