Diddy League Round 2 Report

Well Done to all those who participated in the second round of this years diddy league competition.

We finished in 5th position once again with a good points total considering a number of our swimmers had to fill in at short notice for absentees in an already stretched team.  Those filling in had a tiring night but were more than up for the challenge with all team members showing great maturity when asked to perform, in some cases, with very little rest.

It was, as ever, a competitive gala with a number of races settled within the closing strokes of the race. There were victories for Sam Hardy in the 9yrs 25m Freestyle where he left the opposition 2 seconds behind to claim first in a great swim.  William Wright won the 12/U 50m freestyle for the second diddy gala in succession and the 12/U 4x25m Boys Freestyle Relay team (Will, Lewis, Mitch, Charlie) also repeated their feet from the previous round.

Charlie Palmer had to settle for second again in the 12/U 50m Butterfly while Harry Woods also took second place in the 11/U 50m Breaststroke.

Emily Reynolds, Sam Hardy, Mitchell Sanders & Emily Middleton all picked up 3rd positions in their individual races and there were a number of thirds in the relay events also.

Thanks to all those who helped poolside and for all the support from the parents.

Next Gala is Saturday 22nd June.  Teamsheet will be on the notice board in the coming weeks so please keep checking.

Diddy League Round 1 Report

Well done to all those who participated in the first round of this years diddy league competition.

We finished in a respectable 5th position behind some very talented and difficult opponents and were never left behind with our swimmers pushing the other clubs all the way to earn their places.

It was a competitive gala but with a good atmosphere and amongst others a couple of highlights came from William Wright winning the 12/U 50m freestyle and the 12/U 4x25m Boys Freestyle Relay team (Will, Lewis, Mitch, Charlie) were also victorious.

Charlie Palmer was less than quarter of a second from claiming first in the 12/U 50m Butterfly with Emily Middleton also taking second place in the 11/U 50m Butterfly.

There were a number of gala rookies who put in fine displays and showed no nerves with some fantastic swims beyond their years.

In conclusion, it was a constructive first gala which everyone poolside enjoyed.

Thanks to all those who helped poolside and for all the support from the parents.

Next Gala is Saturday 18th May.  Teamsheet will be on the notice board in the coming weeks so please checking.
