THE second and final weekend of the ASA East Region BAGCAT Championships took place at the UEA Sportspark in Norwich.

Boys aged 10-14 years and girls aged 10-13 years were eligible to compete.

The younger members from St Felix School swimming club were there to continue the success of the Regional Youths and although the age group swimmers had a lot to live up to, their ability and professionalism proved they were equally as successful.

For Sophie Bowler this was her first time and qualifying with two races, 200m breast and 100m breast she was not going to waste the opportunity to show she meant business. She had excellent swims and can be very proud of her two new times.

Georgia Kerridge can be extremely proud of her eight swims gaining 2 silver medals in the 800m and 1500m free. More importantly she got her first national time in the 1500m race.

Charlotte Hicks had 13 individual swims and this being her last year in the age groups.

Hicks had most of her best swims in the first weekend taking gold in the final of 100m fly, 400m IM and 200m fly and silver in the final of the 200m breast and the 800m free.

The second weekend was equally as profitable with Hicks winning another gold medal in the 1500m free and silver in the final of the 200m IM and bronze in the 400m free.

Hicks also held onto her 1st position making her Regional Champion.

George Stannard also had a brilliant competition and again after gaining a gold medal in his 800m free, a silver in the 400m free and two bronze medals in the 200m IM and 100m free in the first weekend found himself 2nd in the BAGCATS.

The second weekend proved just as successful and Stannard went on to win another gold medal in the 1500m free, two more silvers in the 200m breast and 400m IM and bronze in the 200m back final.

Jordan Purdy added more medals to the St Felix haul by winning bronze in the 800m and 1500m free.

Jack Bartlett had an excellent competition adding two more medals with silver in the 100m fly and bronze in his 100m back.

Josie Blades produced some brilliant times and gained a silver medal in 200m back and bronze in 200m fly and 100m back.

Katie Rumsey knew she was in for a good competition as in her first race, 200m back not only did she win a silver medal but also gained her first ever national time.

She then went on to take bronze in the 100m back.

Chantel Whiting added another medal to the already bulging table by gaining bronze in the 1500m free.

The final Medal count was six golds, 11 silvers and 11 bronze medals.
