Blog 3411: Calverton & Bingham Masters Open

Long Eaton Masters had a successful weekend at the CABSC Masters Open Meet, which had to be rearranged from a snowy weekend in March. 

Martin James had PB swims in his three events of 50 and 100 Free and 50 Fly with a second placing in Fly and 3rd for 100 Free.  Julie Phillips had three first places for 50 Breast, 50 Back and 100 IM and a third place for 50 Free.  Mary Holland won all three events of 50 Free, 50 Back and 100 Free.  Ian Frearson, making his Masters comeback after a number of years, won the 50 Back and 50 Free and was placed second in 50 Fly and 50 Breast.  Leanne Atkins won both of her events of 50 and 100 Free.  Coach Maggi Tuck won all of her events which included 50's in all strokes, 200 Free, 100 Back and 100 IM. 

Julie, Mary, Ian and Leanne all gained 2nd placings overall in their age groups, and Maggi Tuck was placed first overall in her age group.   These results came about following a focus on technique and skills which have started to produce improvements in times, which have rewarded the hard work put in by everyone.
