Team work secures super silver 

Faversham S.C. claimed 10 top six finishes when they competed at the East Invicta relay Championships on Sunday afternoon. Their swimmers ranged in age from 9 years up to 15 years as they raced against clubs from Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Herne Bay, Kings School, Shepway and Thanet at Dover Leisure Centre.

The effort and determination of the girls 13/14 yrs. team (Molly Fetcher-Hebden, Sophie Molton, Eva McIntyre and Amy Coupe) paid off as they battled to a super silver medal in the freestyle relay. They then snatched a brilliant bronze in their medley event.

Team work for the boys 13/14 yrs. team (Samuel Hawkins, Nathan Williams, Louis Connell and Luke Holdsworth) won them 4th in both their freestyle and medley races. This was closely followed by the girls 16 yrs. relay team (Mia Kirk, Eva McIntyre, Nicola Crouch and Emily Holt) who took 4th in the freestyle relay and 5th in their Medley relay (Amy, Nicola, Mia and Emily).

Fabulous 5th places were  gained by the boys 11/12 yrs. relay team (Scott Pearce, Ethan Sharman, Max Fordyce and Thomas Russell).The boys finished 5th in both the medley and the freestyle events.

The youngest team that Faversham S.C. sent along were the girls 9/10 yrs. relay (Keira Drury, Molly Fordyce, Neve Smith and Martha Roe). They battled their way into a brilliant final for both events taking 5th in the medley relay and a 6th in the freestyle relay.

Faversham’s 11/12 yrs. girls team (Lucy Brimson, Bella Holt, Olivia Springett and Jenna Appleton) along with the boys 11/12 yrs. team (Cameron Bullard, Luke Butterfill, Harry Miles and Oscar Williams) also did themselves proud, especially as many of them had not competed in an away competition before.

The next event in the Faversham S.C. calendar is the Maidstone Open, to be held at the end of November, and the team hope to earn plenty more medals there.
