Top awards for young Blythe Barracudas

Solihull Editorial 13th Jul, 2015 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016   0

IT IS proving to be a memorable tenth anniversary year for Solihull-based Blythe Barracudas Swimming Club after they had an extremely successful night at the 2015 Solihull Sports Awards which were held at the Solihull Arts Complex last Thursday night.

Scarlett Flynn, 13, triumphed as Sportswoman of the Year while team mate James Morris, also 14, achieved second place in the Sportsman of the Year category.

The awards are testament to all their hard work and achievements throughout what has been a successful year in the pool.

For all their commitment, dedication, diligence and success, both Brian Cooke and Dave Fellows were awarded joint winners of the Coaching Achievement Award and Sue Lindsay won the Services to Sport accolade.

It was also the final round of the Mercian League at Cheslyn Hay on Saturday night and Blythe Barracudas were in the Gala 2 Final against Lichfield, Wombourne, Orion, Northgate and Halesowen.

With all swimmers putting the maximum amount of effort in, it was a very close cut competition with the Barracudas eventually drawing first with Halesowen and both clubs subsequently shared the winning trophy.

Blythe Barracudas is a friendly club offering lessons and training opportunities for all levels of swimmers in the Solihull and South Birmingham areas.
