Kate Windle stole the show at the South East Regional Swimming Championships last weekend.

Competing for Horsham-based Atlantis SC under the Sussex Seahawks banner, Kate clocked a National Qualifying Time (NQT) in the 200m breaststroke to reach her second successive age groups finals in Sheffield at the end of next month.

It proved to be a strong first weekend of competition in the two week long championships, as Kate was joined by Beth Britton in reaching the national finals by Beth Britton, who repeated her qualifying time set earlier in the year in the 100m freestyle.

There were notable swims from all the other Atlantis swimmers with Ella Windle, Aimee Davies, Yasmin Hooker, Eleanor Morris, Lily Davis and Lauren Pedel waving the flag for Atlantis SC.

Deputy head coach Andy Lobley said: “We are obviously delighted for Kate and all her teammates.

“These guys work really hard and spend hours training so to see such great results is really satisfying for the whole club.”

Sussex Seahawks was formed in December by four of Sussex leading clubs to offer the opportunity for club swimmers to train and compete at high level competition together.
