Swimming and running were the order of the day for 65 young Dolphins, who took part in their summer Biathlon event.
Before their well-deserved summer break, the Louth Swimming Club members competed in their third annual such event – which was at Meridian Leisure Centre.
Sponsored by local firm Rodden & Cooper, the swimmers – who all train with the Dolphins’ Skills, Development, Performance and Masters
squads – had to complete a 400-metre timed swim, before setting out on a mile run around the Wood Lane playing fields.
Skills coach and event organiser Charlotte Elliott‐Wright was impressed by the number of entries, enthusiasm and friendly and competitive nature of all who took part.
Competitors were awarded medals and trophies for the fastest in each age group.
The winners were:
Skye Holmes (girls 8 yrs);
Finley Scott and Florrie Hensman (boys and girls 9 years);
William Taylor and Olivia Anstey (boys and girls 10 years);
Jake Adams and Daisy Jacklin ((boys and girls 11 years);
Luke Brumpton and Ruby Waring (boys and girls 12 years);
George Billington and Phoebe Payne (boys and girls 13 years);
Christian Rook (boys 14 years);
Owen Hall and Poppy Jacklin (boys and girls 15 years and over).
Charlotte thanked all the helpers and competitors for making the event a success and Rodden and Cooper for the sponsorship.
