Southampton Dolphins Swimming Club are celebrating historic results after their performances at this year’s Hampshire County Swimming Championships.

The team amassed an incredible club record 79 medals and 13 trophies over the three weekends of competition.

The team achieved 31 gold, 26 silver and 22 bronze medals, swimmers qualified for 36 finals and achieved 167 personal best times which is over 90 per cent of swims.

The team came third in the overall medal table despite being one of the smallest of the 24 competing clubs in Hampshire, behind only Winchester and Portsmouth Northsea who won 83 medals.

This is an incredible seventh consecutive year of improved competitive results for the Southampton team under Head Coach Chris White.

The Dolphins won their first ever open and team relay title in the ladies open 4 X 200m Freestyle event.

The team of Isabella Fraser-Corbridge (14), Jodie Yates (16), Ella Anderson (15) and Kate Baxter (13) produced the surprise performance of the competition by winning the Russell Hill Trophy.

The only team to swim under 9 minutes, they came in four seconds ahead of Northsea and 13 seconds ahead of Rushmoor Royals.

This event had never been won by a small club and has been dominated by Portsmouth and Rushmoor for the last 20 years.

In the age group competition, Kate Baxter (13) swam in 21 individual events and five relays.

She won a staggering 21 medals - 5 gold, 10 silver and 6 bronze.

She won the girls 14 years 200m butterfly and both the 200m and 400m individual medley events as well as the ladies open relay and junior 200m individual medley.

She also collected two medals in the open category, a silver in the 200m individual medley and a bronze in the 200m butterfly.

Isabella Fraser-Corbridge (14) competed in multiple events, winning an eye opening club record 22 Hampshire County medals - 13 gold, 4 silver and 5 bronze.

Fraser-Corbridge became the first Dolphin swimmer to win a ladies open title, taking gold in the ladies, junior and 15 years 100m butterfly.

She narrowly missed out on the all time county record by just 0.20s, posting a time of 1.04.89LC.

Fraser-Corbridge won the 15yrs 50m butterfly in 29.62, again just 0.20s off the county record, 100m butterfly, 200m butterfly, 50m freestyle, 200m and 400m individual medley.

She also won multiple medals in the ladies open category with the gold in the 100m butterfly, silver in the 50m butterfly, 200m butterfly and 400m individual medley.

Both Fraser-Corbridge and Baxter have multiple top 25 rankings in their respective age groups in Great Britain with the former ranked 9th in the 100m butterfly and the latter ranked 13th in the 200m individual medley.

National 50m freestyle champ Filip Fraczek-Krygier (14) starred for Dolphins' boys team.

Taking part in his first County Swimming Championships for over two years, he reminded everyone of his outstanding quality by winning a club record for the boys of 12 gold and 4 silver medals.

He took gold in the 15 years 50m, 100m, and 200m freestyle, 50m butterfly, 100m butterfly, 100m backstroke and 200m individual medley.

His performance in the junior 100m butterfly, with an outstanding time of 1.01.49 LC, saw him receive the winners' shield which dates back to 1954.

There’s a lot of history behind this award - Head Coach Chris White won the same title in 1995 and his coach Gary Abraham won the title in 1974.

Abraham went on to win Olympic, World and Commonwealth medals so it looks like a good omen for Filip, who is now ranked 12th in Great Britain in the 100m butterfly.

Max Nugent, 16, performed some exceptional personal bests to become the first Dolphins swimmer to qualify for two men’s open finals. He qualified in the 50m and 100m butterfly finishing 6th and 7th respectively.

Nugent won his first county title with gold in the 16 years 50m butterfly in a time of 27.09, ranking him 12th in Great Britain in the 16yrs age group.

He also won 2 silvers in the 100m butterfly and 100m backstroke and bronze in the 100m butterfly, 50m freestyle and 50m backstroke.

Ella Anderson, 15, won one gold and four bronze (800m freestyle, 200m freestyle, 200m backstroke and 100m freestyle). She qualified for a ladies open final for the first time, finishing sixth in her favoured 100m backstroke.

A level student and part time swimming instructor Amy Thompson (17) won silver in the girls 17 years and over 50m breaststroke. She posted a season's best time of 35.98 in the ladies open final, narrowly missing out on another medal by 0.20s finishing fourth in a very close finish.

Sebastian Southon (14) secured four top ten finishes in the 15 years boy age group with notable performance in the 100m backstroke qualifying for the final in 8th. He improved in the final to finish seventh. Southon also impressed in his favoured 200m backstroke finish in 6th in 2.33.32.

Jodie Yates (16) secured four top 10 finishes in her favoured 100m and 200m butterfly 7th 1.12.15 and 5th 4.43.27 respectively.

She also finished fifth in the 400m individual medley and 7th in the 400m freestyle.

Ten-year old Rhyseren Taylor secured a phenomenal 28-second personal best time of 5.18.16 LC to win silver in the girls 11yrs 400m freestyle.

She also produced a nine-second personal best in the 200m freestyle to win silver in 2.31.52 and a nine-second personal best in the 200m butterfly to finish with the bronze in 3.04.73.

All three swims were club records and Taylor is now ranked 5th in the 400m freestyle, 15th in the 200m freestyle and 20th in the 200m butterfly in her age group in Great Britain.

Taylor secured her first two regional qualifying times in the 400m freestyle and 200m butterfly despite being a year down with the first age group being 11/12yrs.

She is currently ranked number 1 in Great Britain in the 800m freestyle and was disappointed not to be able to compete in this event as she’s deemed too young this year for counties.
