What a great start to this years National Arena League! 2nd place!
We were host for this first round at Arun Lesiure Centre. Team spirit was fantastic, with everyone supporting each other.
A couple of special mentions to Holly who stepped in at the last moment to cover Becky’s first relay as she was delayed arriving and to Logan who came with just a couple of hours notice to cover an injured swimmer. Also to Lewis who emailed me at lunchtime to say he was unexpectedly home and could swim if we needed him – so I gave birthday boy Tom the evening off!
There were some really good PBs, notably Max knocked 6 seconds off his 100 free and Sammy 3 seconds off his 100 fly – against the older bigger boys!
It was also great to see a number of swimmers there supporting the event even though they were not in the team – I spotted Ella P, Tom C, Amber, Emma M & Will J!
The final result was:
- 1st Eastleigh 235
- 2nd Littlehampton 199
- 3rd Wycombe District C 176
- 4th Dorking 172
- 5th Chichester 133
- 6th West Wight 128
Thank you to everyone who helped at the gala!
