On Saturday 18th January 2020, a strong Newquay Cormorants team entered Division 1 of the Junior Inter-County Club Championship. Newquay Cormorants came out victorious and are now Diddy League and Junior Inter-Club Champions!

The format of this championship was similar to the recent Diddy League, which the Cormorants won. The team consisted of swimmers aged 9-12 years old, and each race counted towards the team total. This event was, however, a step up in standard compared to the Diddy League, with Regional standard swimmers allowed into teams, something not permitted in the Diddy League.

Despite this step up in standard, Newquay Cormorants dominated the event from the start. They came out winners by almost 50 points! The final points tally was:

  • 1st – Newquay Cormorants – 196 points
  • 2nd – CBHSC – 147 points
  • 3rd – Truro City – 141 points
  • 4th – St Ives Bay – 113 Points
  • 5th – St Austell Sharks – 90 points

Well done to all swimmers who took part with some incredible swims and a superb team spirit on show. This now makes the Newquay Cormorants Diddy League and Junior Inter-Club Champions, cementing our place as one of the South West’s leading swim clubs.

A huge thank you to all those who helped poolside, and massive credit must go to our fantastic coaching team who are clearly doing fabulous work with our swimmers. Finally, a special must go to Sue for organising the team.

Well done Cormorants!

Newquay Cormorants Crowned 2019 Kernow Diddy League Champions!

A young Newquay Cormorants team of twenty-five swimmers aged 9-12 years took part in three rounds of the Kernow Diddy League 2019 between October and December.  This consisted of three individual meets against the other swimming clubs in Cornwall.  Each swimmer swam as part of the team and completed individual and relay races; each race position was awarded a point toward the team total.

Races were swam according to age, but many Cormorants swimmers had to swim up age groups due to lack of 12 year olds in our team.  Despite this, Newquay Cormorants won each round convincingly and were run-away winners of the 2019 Kernow Diddy League, winning by over 200 points!  This makes the Cormorants the Cornish champions for the second time in three years!  The full points totals are as follows:

RESULTS AFTER 3 / 3 ROUNDS:

RANK CLUB POINTS
1 Newquay Cormorants 766
2 Carn Brea & Helston 543
3 Truro 492
4 St Austell 475
5 Penzance 411
6 Bude 265

 

A big thank you to Sue for organising the team and to all volunteers poolside.
