TEAGAN-Mae Graham and Abbie Quarrie added their names to Poole’s list of national qualifiers after hitting top form in last-chance saloon meets at Plymouth and Portsmouth.

At Plymouth, 16-year-old Graham carved two seconds and six seconds off her personal best times in the 400m and 800m freestyle, respectively, to book her ticket to the Swim England Summer Nationals in August.

Her times of 4:40.31 and 9:30.33 qualified her for the Sheffield showdown with hours to spare before the deadline.

She also lowered her 200m freestyle PB by two seconds to a bronze medal-winning 2:13.71, just outside the qualifying standard.

Quarrie, 15, will also be heading for her first Swim England nationals after achieving the 200m breaststroke qualifying time with a silver-winning 2:49.45 at Portsmouth.

But team-mate Leonie Wiehle, 17, missed out by the slimmest possible margin as she won silver in the 50m butterfly.

Her time of 28.95sec fell just 0.01sec outside the qualifying time.

But she will get a relay swim with Poole team-mates Fiona Hardie, Jasmine Holmes and Thea O’Keefe at next month’s British Summer Championship.

At Plymouth, meanwhile, 16-year-old O’Keefe added the 200m freestyle to her programme for the Swim England contest thanks to a season’s best time of 2:27.50.

She had already qualified in the 400m and 800m freestyle but improved her rankings after lowering her times to 4:28.85 and 9:23.63, winning silver medals on all three distances.

Holmes and Poole team-mates Katie McKenna and Robbie Hemmings also made finals at Plymouth.

Poole’s qualifiers for the summer nationals also include Jacob Peters and Jazz McCrea, who are also heading for the World and European Junior Championships respectively, and Emily Clarke (Loughborough University) and Chloe Plater (Mount Kelly), who train with Poole during the holidays.

Swim Bournemouth and Bournemouth Collegiate School came fifth and sixth, respectively, in an unofficial medal table from the South West Age Group Championship.

Millfield School topped the table with 66 medals including 25 bronze followed by City of Bristol, Plymouth Leander and Truro City.

Wareham’s sole medal – Tanya Blanchard’s 50m breaststroke gold – put them in 18th place, well ahead of many clubs with a greater total of medals.

Seagulls (one silver) and Poole (four bronze) were 25th and 26th, respectively.
