JC Dobb Trophy 2015 Spring League Round 2 Report
Well if we thought the first round was good then the second was unbelieveable!!! A fun and hugely successful gala packed full of brilliant performances from you all at the Second Round of the JC Dobb Spring League with ISC walking into the gala 9 points ahead and leaving 80 points in front of 2nd place in the league standings, winning the gala with an unbelieveable 226 POINTS!!!
The first round saw ISC get the second highest points total in recent Dobbs history. The Second Round saw ISC eclipse the previous high and set a new league record as far as our records go.
Once again we had a number of swimmers making their Dobbs debuts. Emma Wilkins, Megan Taylor, Samantha Stafford, Imogen Marshall, Lydia Marshall and Alex King all came into the team and showed what they can do with some fantastic times and performances.
In total there were:
0 - Speeding Tickets (1 in the last round)
13 - 1st Places (11 in the last round)
16 - 2nd Places (15 in the last round)
12 - 3rd Places (8 in the last round)
NO DISQUALIFICATIONS YET AGAIN!!!!
This meant we finished in the top 3 in 41 of the 48 races and never finished last in a race as we fought for every single point.
Some highlights of note from the night were:
Lewis Brown achieving a NEW CLUB RECORD in the 50m Butterfly by taking a whole second off his own record which he set a mere 3 weeks previous.
Emma Wilkins showing the development squad is coming on strong with two 1st places and a 2nd place in her relays.
Megan Taylor gaining three 1st places and two second place finishes in her relays as well as getting the final Cannon off to a flying start.
Alex King coming home in 1st place on his individual 50m Backstroke.
There was individual 1st places for Charlie Palmer, Lewis Wright (x2), Paige Baldwin, Emily Middleton, Sophie King, Emily Reynolds and Alex King.
There was also team 1st places for the 10/u Girls Freestyle Relay (Paige, Megan, Emma, Tegan), 12/u Girls Freestyle Relay (Tegan, Natasha, Megan, Emily R), 12/u Mixed Medley Relay (Natasha, Jack, Emily R, Ethan), 8/9 Mixed Medley Relay (James, Lewis B, Megan, Emma), 14/u Boys Freestyle Relay (Charlie, Jack, Jake, Lewis W).
