SUTTON Swimming Club swimmers who achieved Midland Championship qualification times represented Nova Centurion Swimming Club, at the 50m pool in Coventry, during the first of two weekends that make up the Regional Championships.

All Sutton swimmers did extremely well with Russ Golubs leading the way in the boys’ 12-year-old age group.

Russ won a gold medal and was crowned the Midland Champion in the 100m breaststroke event, winning in a fantastic time of one minute 16.93 seconds.

Russ was in great form and also took a bronze in the 400m individual medley event.

He finished in eighth place in the final of the 200m freestyle event and came 10th in the 100m backstroke event.

Russ currently sits in sixth place overall with 1,281 BAGCAT points. Russ is yet to register any points in one of the BAGCAT categories and could see Russ finish even higher.

Mia Fergie also achieved brilliant success whilst competing in her first Midland Championships. In the girls’ 10-year-old age group category she won a silver medal in the 200m butterfly. Mia secured 14th place in the 200m freestyle and the 100m backstroke with a 17th place in the 100m breaststroke event.

Mia sits in ninth place overall and is yet to register in one of the BAGCAT categories.

Other Sutton swimmers performing superbly over the weekend were Lily Boseley, finishing fifth in the 10-year-old 100m backstroke event, Jim Fergie (twin brother to Mia),eighth in the 10-year-old 200m butterfly final, and Emily James, 36th in the 11-year-old 200m freestyle and 22nd in the 100m breaststroke events.
