LASA Counties 2023 – Weekend 2 – Report

by Stephen Benbow


The 2023 LASA Counties are now in full swing and the second weekend (Sessions 6 to 9) have now been completed.

Session 6 on Saturday 4th February was the 50m Buttterfly, along with the 200m Open Breastroke & Backstroke.

Session 7 consisted of both 100m Freestyle and 100m Individual Medley.  For the few hardcore swimmers we were also treated to the Open 200m Butterfly at the end of the session.

Note : If anyone has seen Ryan’s iPhone 7 (or knows where it is / might be) could you please leave a message on the Facebook group as he lost it on Saturday at Hinckley Leisure Centre.  Thank you.

Session 8 & 9 on Sunday saw the 50m Backstroke, 50m Freestyle, and Girls Open 400 IM before culminating in the 50m Freestyle.

Well done again to all swimmers that took part this weekend, and also to all the coaches, officials, and helpers.
