Ilkeston Swimmers Compete at the East Midlands Regional Championships
A group of 10 Ilkeston Swimming Club (ISC) members competed at the 2019 Regional Swimming Championships held at Corby International Pool and Sheffield Ponds Forge, with 5 ISC and 5 ISC/Derventio Excel swimmers, a total of 18 finals and 3 medals. There were also a high percentage of personal best times (pbs) achieved across the swimmers as follows:
Fred Buckingham with 11 qualifying times, 5 finals and pbs
Erin Pickard with 3 qualifying times and pbs
Arwen Moore with 2 qualifying times and pbs
Erica Beharall with 2 qualifying times
Eja Coe with 13 qualifying times, 6 finals, 3 silvers for 200im, 400im, 200fly and pbs

Leo Allanson with 9 qualifying times and pbs
Joshua Bestwick with 1 qualifying time
Lewis Brown with 4 qualifying times and pbs

With some of the swimmers gaining their first ever qualifying regional times, it was great to see them manage their nerves and swim with confidence.
