Alex has achieved a national qualifying time at the Regional Champs this weekend.
This means that Alex Highcock goes into the history books as the first swimmer to swim for Chorley Marlins on the National stage at the tender age of 12.
An overjoyed Head Coach (Mary Parkinson) couldn't contain herself eagerly ringing people to tell them of Alex's achievement, she said excitedly "She's done it! we're off to the Nationals, I'm so excited for her and the club." She then went on to describe how Alex wasn't fazed by the whole thing and that Alex's parents and herself were more excited, and Alex had remained the consummate professional throughout. Well done Alex.
The results from the final are below.
