Young Lincoln swimmer in national finals

Lincoln swimmer Hayley Williams (pictured) is in the national finals of British Colleges Sport Event, after she won three heats the last week.

Williams (17) is representing Lincoln College at the event, and in the regional heats won the 50m breaststroke, 100m breaststroke and 50m freestyle.

The finals will be held in Bath next April.

She said: “The competition at Bath is similar to the UK School Games I attended in Sunderland and will encompass many sports, including swimming.

“I look forward to all my competitions but the enjoyment rises with the level of the event and against the best swimmers in British Colleges.”

Williams was nominated for Young Sportswoman of the Year at the Lincolnshire Sports Awards 2010, where she was runner-up.
