Trident Swim Team going strong in Castlebar

Members of Trident Swim Club, based in Carrick-on-Shannon, who competed in the Castlebar Regional meeting

A fantastic meet for Trident Swim Team at the weekend resulted in a host of medals, ‘A’ times and personal bests when the squad travelled to Castlebar for their last regional meet of the season.

Ella McKeon took gold in the Girls’ 12-13 years 100m butterfly in a time of 1:32.00 as well as gaining her 10th ‘A’ time. Ruby Lowe took the silver in the Girls’ 12-13 years 100m Individual Medley with a time of 1:26.69 along with her 5th ‘A’ time.

Ruby went on to achieve a gold medal and her sixth ‘A’ time in the Girls’ 12-13 years Breaststroke with a time of 1:40.57. Aoibhe Rynn took the gold medals in both the Girls’ 14 & Over 100m Individual Medley with a time of 1:22.73 and the 100m Freestyle with a time of 1:11.54. Phoebe Lynott had a fantastic swim in the Girls’ 11 & Under 100m Breaststroke, taking gold with a time of 1:52.80.

The club also took the gold medals in the 200M mixed Freestyle team relay events in both the Under 12 & Over 13 categories.

The U12 team included Ella McKeon, Caireann O’Grady, Josh McWeeney and Luke Ruddy, with the 13 & Over team comprising Aoibhe Rynn, Ruby Lowe, and brothers Cormac and Eoghan Rynn. A nail-biting finish to the 13 & Over Medley relay saw Eoghan pull the team back from 3rd place to take the silver medal for Trident.

Well done to all of the team, including swimmers, team managers Fiona Rynn and Amanda McKeon, and of course the supporting parents.
