After the Devon County team’s great performance in winning the Regional Shield on the 19th November, their points were put forward for the National Inter County event.
When the National positions were revealed, Devon had equalled their best performance by taking 4th place and were only 1.5 points away from 3rd place!
The County team secured several individual national podium positions:
Kalon Veale took first place in the 25+ fly and backstroke with Levin Veale claiming first place in the 18+ breaststroke and the 18+ Butterfly respectively.
Second places were taken by Simon Veale in the 55+ backstroke, Kalon Veale in the 25+ freestyle, Sue Haigh in the 65+ butterfly and Emma Bickley in both the 18+ backstroke and butterfly.
3rd places were secured by Kitty Hollinsworth 45+ backstroke, Simon Veale in the 55+ butterfly and Sue Haigh in the 65+ breaststroke and freestyle
Relay teams were also successful in gaining the top placings:
The mixed 260+ freestyle (Bill Leitch, Rebecca Jenkinson, Sue Walker Simon Veale), the mixed 260+ medley relay (Rebecca Jenkinson, David Smith, Bill Letch Sue Walker), the men’s 72+ freestyle (Levin Veale Kalon Veale Nye Levett and Will Rawlinson), the men’s 72+ medley relay, ( Kalon Veale, Levin Veale, Warren Barrett and Will Rawlinson) and the men’s 100+ medley relay (Kalon Veale Levin Veale Warren Barrett and Nye Levett) all took first place……..with the women’s 72+ medley relay (Emma Bickley, Emily Lawrence, Ellie Marquardt, Jodi Le Page) and the men’s 100+ freestyle relay teams (Levin Veale Will Rawlinson Tom Hughes Nye Levett ) all claiming second position.
The mixed 220+ freestyle relay team (Simon Veale Rebecca Jenkinson Sue Haigh and Nigel Travers Griffin) took third place
Special mention also must go to Bill Leitch. As well as securing top results in his relay swims Bill took 4th, 5th and 9th places in his individual events, the backstroke, freestyle and butterfly while competing against swimmers potentially 12 years younger than himself!!
However, the whole team deserves a ‘pat on the back’ for a magnificent effort in regaining the Regional shield and placing so well in the National competition.
