Foulridge’s Hannah Raistrick was in tremendous form at the Yorkshire Swimming Association Winter Competition at Ponds Forge recently.

The 11-year-old, swimming for Skipton, produced the performances of the weekend, finishing with three top 10 placings and gaining four North Eastern region qualifying times - earning her a place at the North Eastern Regional competition at Sunderland Aquatics Centre at the end of November.

In Sheffield, Hannah, who, up until this summer attended St Michael and All Angels Primary School in Foulridge, and is now at Skipton Girls’ High School, was eighth in the 100m backstroke with a personal best of 1.17.50.

Hannah sliced 10 seconds off her personal best while coming eighth in the 200m individual medley in 2.48.32, and she rounded off the weekend with a tremendous swim in the 100m freestyle to finish sixth in 1.07.43 to set a club record.
