CASC held their 5th Long Course 50m Open Meet which was attended by 18 clubs from all over the Country at East Midland International Pool Corby. We offered a variety of swim events with finals for 100m races for under 14yrs and over 15yrs. CASC had over 45 swimmers in attendance winning 23 Golds, 19 silvers and 10 bronze medal. Some swimmers gained further and new Regional Times with some amazing PB’S also.
The whole event was extremely busy and rang smoothly with an amazing atmosphere, these events truly are a team event and all parents helped to support it by assisting in a variety of roles.
The local Mayor of Corby Matt Keane visited poolside and took the opportunity to meet some of the swimmers and officials.
The MP for Corby Tom Pursglove also attended, he himself was a swimmer in his youth and he spoke to the CASC team swimmers about the competition and chatted with the coaches about the success of CASC over the last few years. Both Tom and Matt had photo opportunities with Club President Howard Wilkinson, CASC Chairman Gary Thomas and Long Life member/ASA President Brian Collis.
Head coach Tim Evans stated that ‘Swimmers and Parents at CASC really work hard to put together these events on and it is really an honour to be part of it. This is a members club run by members! The successes and hard work is shared amongst us all’
