Edward Baxter swam excellent in his first international meet in Italy last weekend, representing the England Team at the Energy Standard  Cup in Lignano, Italy.  Edward swam all three of his favoured Breaststroke events a fractions of a second outside his PB's set only a few weeks earlier at the British Championships, and gaining a third place in the 200m event.  A great start to Cockermouths International season.

Such was the standards on the breaststroke events that despite finishing third Baxter finished 5th highest ranked Male out of approximately 90 competitors.

Also competing was Eleanor Southward who swims second claim for Cockermouth.  Eleanor won the junior girls 100m Backstroke and smashed the club record for the event.  Well done Ellie!!
