Butler’s in record form

As always the Mike Lockwood Memorial Swim Meet was a great success with over 70 swimmers attending this four day swim meet including seven swimmers from two teams in Jamaica.

The competition was stiff and most of the swimmers put everything into their swims to ensure that they swam personal best times.

Despite this being the first long event swim meet of the season, a number of swimmers not only improved on their PBs, but they also broke five club and pool records.

In addition to these great swims athletes like Alice Narborough, 10, made a great impression on all with her toughness in the water and her determination to take on the longer events and to do them well. Her commitment was rewarded by her receiving the High Point Award for the 9-10 age group.

Lara Butler broke the 100 metres backstroke record. Danielle Boothe broke the 100m fly, 100m and 200m breaststroke records and her younger sister Stephanie broke the 8 and under 100m butterfly record.

The High Point Awards were won in the girls section by: Ali Jackson (6 and under), Stephanie Boothe (7-8), Alice Narborough (9-10), Luisa Roberts (11-12), Lara Butler (13-14) and Summer Flowers (15 and over).

In the boys Tobias Mikkelson (6 and under), Dane Muspratt (7-8), Cameron Anderson (Jamaica’s Speedos 9-10), Simon Butler (11-12), Josh Bain (13-14) and Seiji Groome (15 and over).
