Winter League Round 1 – Report
A well deserved 2nd place for A Team with 285 points. We had some fantastic swims across all age groups and a lovely team atmosphere.
We are well placed for the next round. Thank you to all swimmers, parent taxi services and helpers on poolside.
Well done to all B Team swimmers. So many swimmers had to swim up an age group (or two) and you all put in a fantastic effort. Lots of younger swimmers really enjoying themselves tonight!
Thank you everyone for making it so much fun.
