First published in Sport

THREE members of Minehead and West Somerset SC recorded county qualifying times at the Burnham Sprint Meet.

Heidi Atkins qualified on the freestyle and breaststroke, for which she also got a bronze and silver medal.

Sam Milliship joined her with fast times in the freestyle and butterfly while collecting silver and gold medals.

Tom Milliship qualifed on freestyle while claiming bronze. Milliship also received a bronze in his age group for butterfly.

A total of seven club members took part in the meet with personal bests for Chai Annings (50m 13-14 freestyle, butterfly), Atkins (50m 13-14 breaststroke), Lauren Hill (50m 10/U freestyle, backstroke), Tom Milliship (50m 9-10 freestyle, butterfly), Jess Mills (50m 10/U freestyle, breaststroke) and Tilly Phillips (50m, 13-14 freestyle).

Former Minehead member Jake Hill (13), who now swims for Taunton Deane, swam well at the regionals in Bristol where he achieved regional times in the 400m individual medley and 100m backstroke to add to the time he had already recorded in the 200m butterfly.

Hill is now aiming to improved on those times at the county championships at Millfield next month.
