Masters Inter-County 2016
The Masters team competed on the 12th of November at the midlands round of the annual inter-county competition. Coming first as is now usual in the midlands event, their times were aggregated with that of other events to reveal that the top four teams were:
Hampshire 1524 points
Yorkshire 1500 points
Warwickshire 1456 points
Middlesex 1446 points
The event gets harder each year to maintain a place at or near the top. As evidence of this, ten years ago in the ladies 65+ butterfly Warwickshire were likely to be the only team fielding a swimmer in the midlands. This year most of the teams had competitors. None the less the teams record is impressive, never out of the top three for over a decade. The results are a testimony to team captain Trevor Clark’s efforts in selecting and leading the team and to the team in putting in a maximum effort year after year.
