Comans’ swimmers end season on high






Young Comans’ swimmers ended their season on a high recently as they competed in the Summer National Division Two competition at the University of Limerick recently.

  Seven swimmers from the Comans Swimming Club took part in the Swim Ireland competition, achieving personal bests and making the finals in each event.

  Robert Tobin swam his last race with the club, signing off with a personal best in the 100m Backstroke event.

  Sean Kilkenny was on top form with personal best times in his four races while also breaking that all-important one minute mark for the 100m Freestyle. He capped off a very impressive display by taking a bronze medal.

  Ellie Moran also achieved PBs and made the finals in all of her races, just missing out on a bronze medal by a second. 

  Sisters Anastazya and Antonina Pliszka were in impressive form also. Anastazya clocked a PB in her 50m event, just missing out on third place in the process.

  For Antonina there was medal success in the 200m Backstroke with a 9 second PB while she was also unfortunate not to have taken a second medal, just missing out by 0.04s of a second.

  Club success continued for Michael Lavin, who achieved exceptional PBs in his 200m Backstroke and 200m Breaststroke, while making the finals in all of his events. He took home a bronze and two silver medals just missing out on gold on both occasions.

  Special mention has to go to Sinead Freeman, the youngest Comans’ swimmer, who took part in nine events and took home seven medals, including two gold in a dominant display.

  So the curtain comes down on yet another successful season for the Comans’ swimmers who will be returning to the pool at Roscommon Leisure Centre in the autumn.
