CoStA swimmers Kieran McCarthy and Lauren Stott both picked up medals in Luton


Two swimmers from the City of St Albans Swimming Club (CoStA) came away with medals at the regional championships.

Lauren Stott picked up two bronzes in the 200m backstroke and 100m butterfly while Kieran McCarthy secured bronze in the 50m breaststroke.

They were part of a 19-strong CoStA team, aged between 11 and 14, taken to the championships at Inspire Luton.

And the rest of the squad also produced some strong performances.

Grace Stedman finished sixth in the 200m breastroke as did McCarthy in the 100m.

Joe Pannese, appearing in his first regionals, came in eighth in the 50m freestyle while Tanin Kursidim was sixth in the 200m butterfly and seventh in the 100m backstroke.

Stedman and Kursidim followed these results by placing seventh in their finals, the 100m breaststroke and 200m backstroke respectively.

A spokeswoman said: “It was a solid performance from all 19 swimmers.

“Head Coach Mike Cole expressed his pride in the team’s performance, praising the hard work and the progression made by the age group swimmers.”
