Sherwood end year with wins

IN the final competitive events of 2011, the Sherwood Colliery Swimming Club A and B squads enjoyed success in the final rounds of the Notts ASA Sports Centre League.

Beating off stiff competition from other Notts-based clubs, the A squad won their event to retain the top spot in Division One, and the B squad enjoyed a joint first place with Rykneld in Division Three.

Consistent first and second placings helped both squads to success, with eight swimmers - Esme Wood, Kurt Hardy, Jade Young, Elliot Clogg, Luke Carnell, Nathaniel Wood, Owen Ottaway and Sophie Malbon - achieving a total of 12 personal best times between them to add to the overall points tally.
