Falcon Open Meet Sunday 24th September 2017


Hucknall and Linby Dolphins took a small but strong squad to this year’s Falcons Open Sprint Meet Sunday 24th September 2017. Lynden Johnson, Luke Hill and Katie Hill representing the club against the top clubs in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Lynden reaching the final of the 14yr 50M Backstroke and Breaststroke setting a PB in the latter. Eventually finishing sixth in both finals. Lynden also setting a PB in his freestyle qualifier.

Katie, in her first ever open meet, began the day with our first Trophy by finishing 6th in the 10 y.o Individual Medley. Then going on to reach the finals of the Butterfly, Freestyle, Back and Breaststroke setting county time in Freestyle and Breaststroke along the way. Finally finishing 6th in the Back, and 5th in the Butterfly and Freestyle she saved the best until last by winning the Girls 10yr 50m Breaststroke beating her previous county time by another second!

The 13 y.o category was particularly tough this year for Luke Hill with an impressive swim in the 50m Back knocking 3 seconds off his personal best missing out on the reserve finalist spot by 10th s of a second. Luke shaved another 2 seconds off his PB in the breaststroke and smashed 12 seconds off his Individual Medley time just wasn’t quite enough to see him in the top six.
