20/04/2016 MORE SWIMMING SUCCESS FOR SHANNON!

On Saturday 16th April, Loreto College student Shannon Baird (Year 8) was swimming in the Provincial Towns League finals in Ballymena.   Having successfully qualified through the preliminary PTL heats in March at the Aura Letterkenny Pool, Shannon was now swimming 50m Breaststroke, 50m Freestyle and 100m Individual Medley in her age group.  In each swim Shannon got first place and was awarded gold medals in all three events.

Shannon recently reached the finals of all her events in the Ulster Age Group Championships, bringing home 5 PB’s with a Bronze medal in the 100m Breaststroke. These swims have also given Shannon two further qualifying times for the Irish Age Group Championships in July at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin. A member of Coleraine Swimming Club, Shannon enjoys regular competitive training with the Ulster Performance Centre Development Squad in Bangor and Swim Ulster Talent Development Squad in Magherafelt.
