Sherwood and Nova swimmer Lily Boseley, who is only 14, managed to qualify for two events. The events were the meter backstroke and the meter backstroke. She swam a superb swim and won her heat with a new personal best time of 1: This qualified her as the fastest junior swimmer for this event.
Later in the evening the finals took place. Many watched her swim live on the live stream that was available. With great anticipation everyone was cheering her on as she blasted through the first 50 leading the heat out. Lily finished first with another outstanding personal best time of 1: Her face said it all when she finished the finals, with a beaming smiling across her face.
With this swim Lily broke the British junior record which was held by Elizabeth Simmonds since She is now the fastest 14 year old girl and a great role model for many local swimmers to aim for and to whom they look up to. Lily also swam in the meter backstroke even though she was unwell.
There were over 60 teams competing from all over Europe. Nova Centurion took a team of 20 swimmers throughout their squads to participate.

The girls left early on Thursday lunchtime, alongside two of the Nova coaches, and returned early hours on Monday morning. For some of them it was the first time away on a residential swim meet.
Without the daily support of their families the girls got through a tremendous swim meet and made some fantastic new long course P. They also had the chance of swimming alongside some of the most talented swimmers that Europe has to offer. It has set their own aspirations very high with the hope of qualifying again for larger meets in the near future. The swimmers now go straight back in to their next block of hard work in the pool to focus on their domestic league competitions for the rest of this month before the second weekend of the County Championships at the beginning of February hosted at Water Meadows.
