PB’s & ‘SPEEDING TICKETS’ for TEAM TSC at IRISH Age Group D2’s
Day 2 continued as Day 1 finished in Limerick for the TEAM Members with some fantastic swimming by the Swimmers in the CLUB.
First up for the TEAM was Joe Kenny (11) in the 400IM who smashed his PB with a 12 second improvement to finish in 4th place overall. Muirin Goulding (14) continued her success with a heats swim PB in the 100BF and converted the same time in the Final to finish in 2nd place overall in her age group. In the same BF event Matthew Parnell (14) delivered a PB to qualify for reserve for the final (9th place).
Next up was 4 of the boys in the 100BS as Traolach McKnight (15) and Joe Kenny (11) delivered great times in their heats while Eoin Feighan (14) & Evan Rossiter (12) also converted PB’s.
One of the bigger events for the team today was the 200FC with Muirin Goulding delivered a PB in heats and also a faster swim in Finals to win the event overall in her age group, and qualified again for Division 1’s making it her 3rd QT of the meet. Greg Sinnott (13), Evan Rossiter (12), Matthew Parnell (14), Eoin Feighan (14) and Stephen Herlihy (14) all swam the same event with PB’s as both Herlihy & Rossiter qualifying for finals tonight. Both boys swam faster again this evening with Rossiter qualifying to Division 1’s whilst Herlihy having qualified this morning, repeated the faster swim earning himself a ‘Speeding ticket’ from his afternoon’s effort.
The morning finished with Eoin Feighan (14) delivering a further PB in his favoured 1500FC to win the event in his age group.
The last event of the evening session was the relay with Feighan, Parnell, McKnight & Herlihy narrowly missed out on a podium finish as they touched home in 4th place overall.
The event so far has seen the athletes step up to a higher level of racing and convert some great PB’s and currently adds 4 more athlete qualifiers to the Division 1 team.
Coach Sherry was delighted with today”s performance and looks forward to the final day of racing tomorrow.
