FAREHAM NOMADS A won 36 of 53 events as they dominated the second round of the Minor League last weekend.

Fareham Nomads B team were also present at the event where they found themslves competing against their club-mates and Winchester City Penguins B.

Head coach Stewart Crowe said: ‘In a gala such as this, it was probably the performance in terms of times that was more important than the final result.

‘To this end the Nomads swimmers swam to a total of 68 personal-best times.’

Three individual wins came for the B team, with Anna Ross winning the 50m backstroke and breaststroke.

The third win came from Alex Finch in the 50m breaststroke.

Hamble Aquatics and Farnham were both unable to compete as they could not field a team.

Fareham Nomads also had two swimmers – Jessica Davies and Chris Finch – competing at the Regional Short Course Championship held at the Mountbatten Centre last weekend.

Crowe added: ‘Between them they contested 15 events over the two days and put in some credible displays at this early stage of the swimming year.’

Finch, 18, swam in nine events and gained four personal best times.

They came in the 100m freestyle (53.58sec), 100m individual medley (1.00.59), 200m freestyle (1.56.14) and the 200m backstroke (2.09.04).

Davies’ best performance came in the 200m freestyle, in which she set new figures of 2.08.46.

Dan Alberts, who is now at university, achieved personal bests in the 200m butterfly, 100m butterfly and 50m backstroke.
