Baylie Seery's Recent Achievements
Over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of December, Baylie Seery raced in her last swimming competition of this year.
Having already gained Lancashire County Qualifying Times over the last 11 months, her aim for this competition was ‘race practice’, in order to prepare for the County Championships which take place over 3 consecutive weekends, beginning on Saturday 20th January.
Not only did Baylie use the racing to pick up knowledge to help her in the future, she also won 1 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze medals, swam 3 Personal Best times and even managed to gain another County Time taking her total to 13 out of a possible 16 qualifying times.
Although she has been advised to stay out of the water for this last week, which is not something she likes to hear, she is hoping to be back in the pool this week training hard in order to do her best at the County Championships where she has chosen to enter 12 events, one of which is an event she has never before swam, in a Long Course pool - a brave decision given that it is one of the hardest events in swimming (400 metre Individual Medley)!
As well as managing all of the above, Baylie has also recently received her Certificate for her Sports Leaders UK Level 1 Award in Sports Volunteering.
To gain this, Baylie attended a course and volunteers every other Friday at a Sports Club for people with learning disabilities which is something she really enjoys.
Well done, Baylie!
