A strong team of youngsters from Camden Swiss Cottage finished runners-up in the first round of the M11 division of this year’s National Junior Swimming League.

Camden put in a solid performance against strong opposition at Southbury Leisure Centre in Enfield, earning 293 points.

That left them ahead of third -placed RTW Monson from Tunbridge Wells (261 points) and behind winners Barnet Copthall (327 points) in a field of eight teams.

Gabriele Giavannoni was victorious for Camden, and Keith Mara, Marliese Rittenhouse, Lauren Brantley and Abel Sinko-Uribe also picked up maximum points.

With a number of competitors taking place in multiple events, Rittenhouse also recorded a second-placed finish – as did Callum Carlisle, Daniel Markov, Clementine Butler Brown, Amelia Sargent and Sinko-Uribe.

The nine-and-under boys’ freestyle and medley teams of Leo He, Theo Pliner, Mara and Giavannoni both won their events.

So did the boys’ 11-and-under freestyle squad of Konrad Georgescu, Carlisle, Mikhail Krasnoshcekiy and Cole McKechnie, in addition to the 11-and-under girls’ medley team – Butler Brown, Chloe Berko-Boateng, Sargent and Rittenhouse.

The boys’ 12-and-under freestyle quartet of McKechnie, Mika Fitzpatrick-Suen, Jonathon Novak and Sinko-Uribe also emerged triumphant.

The second round of three takes place on May 17.
