The University of Sunderland’s swimming team ended their 2016 BUCS Nationals campaign today, as seven swimmers took part in the heat events.

Josh Campbell produced a solid swim from start to finish in the men’s 100m breaststroke, finishing third with a time of 1:11.31.

Phillip Coulson had mixed emotions in his 50m butterfly heat, producing a quick time of 31.92secs, only to be disqualified after the race.

Coulson said: “I was very annoyed. If I had finished the race properly, things could have been different.

“However, I was still pleased with my performance in the race.”

Andrew Davison, swimming in his first race of the championships, also featured in the 50m butterfly and finished in a time of 35.99secs.

Androniki Mazi and Ruby Laurence featured in the women’s 50m butterfly. Mazi finished eight in her heat, with a reasonable time of 33.92secs.

Laurence, who was racing in her third event of the tournament, also finished eight in her heat with a time of 43.3secs.

David Crosier ended Sunderland’s weekend campaign in the men’s 100m backstroke heats. He managed to complete his race in a time of 1:21.23.

After a heat win on Friday and many of the swimmers achieving personal bests, it has been a positive week for the swimmers at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.
