Koslow leads way as Louth hit form
LOUTH Swimming Club finished a sensational third in the second round of the National Arena Swimming League.
The club travelled to Biggleswade to compete against five other teams in the East Midlands Division One – City of Milton Keynes, Notts Leander A, St Ives, Biggleswade and University of East Anglia Norwich A.
Louth had four wins, eight second places and 12 thirds, and the club's swimmer of the night was their sole individual winner, Ivan Koslow.
He also gave Louth the closest finish of the night, winning the boys Under-13s 100m butterfly by just one tenth of a second, over the swimmer from City of Milton Keynes. Koslow was victorious again as part of the boys' Under-13 4x50m medley relay team, which had Louth's first relay win of the evening.

Kieran Young led off on his favoured backstroke, gaining a personal best and a county qualifying time. Next in the water was breaststroker Tom Harrop, edging the team forwards towards the lead.
Koslow was next with the butterfly, and the win was finalised with a two-second cushion over UEA Norwich, by freestyler Joshua Wright.
The Under-13 boys' freestyle relay team were winners again later, with a slightly different line up.
This team was led off by Wright, who was swiftly followed in by Harrop, gaining the fastest time of the relay swimmers. George Hobbins was next to swim and this time Young was the anchor man.
The boys' Under-15 freestyle relay team were also double winners from the first round. The team consisting of Fin Fox, Sam Swaby, Daniel Challis and William McIntyre, had a nail-biting 1.3 second win over Notts Leander and were the final Louth team to have a victory.
Amongst the second places for Louth were Harrop, in the boys' Under-13 100m breaststroke; McIntyre, in the boys' Under-15 100m butterfly; and Emma Maw, in the girls' Under-13 100m butterfly.
Emma Harrop (9-11 years 50m freestyle), Hobbins (Under-13 100m freestyle), and Swaby (Under-15 100m breaststroke) also grabbed second places.
The girls, Under-13 freestyle relay team – of Lily Miller, Marie Schneider, Emma Maw and Sofie Schneider – and the boys, Under-15 medley relay line-up – of Fox, Swaby, McIntyre and Challis – also finished second.
A string of third places helped Louth to a superb team performance on the night.
