RUGBY Swimming Club’s artistic swimmers won four silver medals at the National Championships in Nottingham.

The National Championships is the main event of the year for swimmers aged 15 to 18-years-old as competitors travelled to the meet from across the country.

Young swimmer Eve Young came away with two silver medals as she placed second in both the senior and junior free solo events and broke the 70-point barrier for the first time.

And the senior team also won silver in the technical team event to become the first Rugby squad to win a medal at the National Championships.

The team comprised of Lola Dudkowsky, Olivia Tyers, Lili Carroll, Charlie Putt, Poppy Williams, Bethany Clarke, Young and India Townsend with Olivia Eaves and Matilda John in reserve.

And the senior’s ‘Sun’ routine saw them earn a personal best score of 67 points and their second silver medal with another fantastic performance.

The team comprised of Dudkowsky, Tyers, Carroll, Putt, Williams, John, Young and Townsend with Josephine Mozley and Clarke in reserve.

And the junior free team impressed with their ‘Lion King’ routine to score 61 points and secure a top-eight finish against the best teams from across the country.

The team comprised of Olivia Eaves, Ariane Sargent, Jagoda Czuplak, Edith John, Amy Buckley, Jessica Barrett-Leaf and Natalia Rodrigues.

For many of these swimmers, it was their first time competing at the Championships whilst others were appearing at their last national event due to the age restrictions.
