CALLUM McGregor received a double accolade at Swim Bournemouth’s annual trophy night.

The 16-year-old won the award for the swimmer of the year in the performance squad and also took the club’s strength and conditioning prize.

Swim Bournemouth squad awards recognise swimmers who “go above and beyond” in their training, attendance, attitude, commitment and results in the pool.

“Callum’s hard work in the training pool is translating into great results in competition. His times are coming down quickly and he is aspiring to national level this year,” said head coach Emma Richards.

Other squad awards went to Sam Chamberlain (Bournemouth C squad), Jess Larner (Bournemouth A), Halle Harris (Ferndown C) and Paige Bryant and Matt Workman (Ferndown A).

Isabelle Hepburn won the equivalent girls’ award.

Christian Kenwright and Holly Earley were the most improved 15 and over swimmers while trophies for the 12yrs age group went to Ethan Leader and Amelia Reynolds.

Joshua English and Paige Ware won the improvement awards for the 11yrs age group.

Most improved swimmers in the 10yrs category were Max Looker and Arohi Singh while the 9 and under awards went to Cameron Willcocks and Minnie Barratt.

Mike Stonier received the trophy for volunteer of the year after three years as Swim Bournemouth chairman followed by a year as vice-chairman to share his knowledge with other team members.

He has also run the club’s membership section and rankings.

“Mike has given a lot of time and dedication to the club over the last five years. He is a highly valued member of the team who has been a huge support to the club and the coaching team,” Richards added.
