Scarborough Swimming Club has once again taken the North-East region by storm, winning 12 medals at the NER Swimming Championships.

Amy Corcoran (10), Jace Cappleman (14) and Nathan Mundy (10) came home from Sunderland with a haul of medals.

Amy won gold in both the 100m and 200m breaststroke and silver in the 200m butterfly and Jace won two medals in the team events, a gold in the 200m freestyle relay and a bronze in the 100m freestyle relay.

Nathan Mundy, swimming at his first NER championship, came home with seven medals – gold in the 200m and 400m freestyle, silver in the 200m individual medley and bronze in the 100m backstroke, 200m butterfly, 200m backstroke and 100m butterfly.

Head Coach Sam Greetham said: “I am thrilled with all of our swimmers who qualified for the North Eastern Championships this winter.

“Without exception every swimmer achieved personal bests and there were some outstanding swims from some of our senior swimmers, Tom Heaton, Sam Broadley and Rebecca Cox to name but three.

“Our young swimmers certainly did us proud though and it’s been a long time since we’ve had this many medals from the NERs.”

In addition to the medal winners, swimmers Emily Harrison (12), Elizabeth Swift (13) and Alex Lynn (13) also won places in the top 10 of their age group in the 100 and 200m freestyle, while Adam Dawson, aged only 10, came sixth in the 100m backstroke.
