Saturday 20th May saw Albatross have a fantastic day of competition in Crawley at the South East Regional Skills event.

We started the day well with Amy qualifying for the National Finals in Girls Group B. In the next event Alice and Ellie competed in the Girls E and Girls D1 respectively with Alice collecting Silver in the closed event with both getting their qualifying scores for National Skills! 🥈

This was followed by four divers; Thomas and Laurie competed in the boys D1, with Thomas collecting the gold medal 🥇and Laurie putting in another good performance having improved so much since the first qualifying event.

Poppy competed in girls D2, putting in a good set of dives and getting a personal best with Sam R competing in Boys D2, where he collected the gold medal and got his qualifying score 🥇

Finally Sam L and Ariana competed in the final event, Sam collected silver in the closed event 🥈and Ariana put in a fantastic performance to collect the gold medal in the closed event 🥇. Ariana had already qualified for the Nationals earlier this year in Southend but she improved on the score further today.

The 6 qualifiers from todays event will be joined by Fin, who qualified in B+ boys last month in London, at this years Swim England National Skills Finals in Leeds. We congratulate all our divers irrespective of qualification as you have all improved over the season and we are proud of you.
