Diddy League 2023 – Round 1 Report

by Stephen Benbow


🔱 Report from Round 1 Diddy League at Corby 🔱

What a great result for LNSC at Corby – 2nd Place!

Not only did they all swim amazingly, there was so much energy and support for each other.  One LNSC swimmer even gave her goggle to another LNSC swimmer during a medly event that they were both in – meaning she had to go without herself!

We hope all out swimmer enjoyed themselves!

Look out for Round 2 emails soon.

Winter League Round 2 – Report

by Stephen Benbow

🔱 A Team at Rugby 🔱

Well done to all swimmers who competed on Saturday evening.  We had some slippy blocks, no diving alowed at the shallow end, and a couple of false starts across the pool.

The result – a well deserved 3rd place 🥉

Onwards to the final round!

Thanks to all the swimmers, the managers (Jodie & Hayley), the helpers (Claire, Leighanne, Leanne, and Sam), the officials (Simon, Heather, Jennifer), and parent taxis who help make these evenings happen.
