What a great gala, a real joy to watch and a great all round team display.
Life in the premier division A is not an easy one as we found ourselves rooted to the bottom of the table after 2 rounds, and we needed a great performance going into the 3rd round at Preston. Well we certainly got that from all the swimmers involved, not only did we finish 2nd on the day but we amassed a whopping 115 points to take us higher up the table with a chance of avoiding the swim off's come August.
We now only need 104 points to overtake Pioneer 79 and avoid the swim off's, who would have thought that from a small market town such as Chorley eh!
I can't mention everyone who swam as it would take too much space but for me the top boy and top girl swims goes to.........drum..roll..........
Top Girl - Maddie Kennedy, an amazingly fast swim in the 50m Free gave us 1st place, 4 points and a great PB for Maddie. Well done Maddie, that was one of the best races of the day, great job keep it up.
Top Boy - Bradley Astles, to say Bradley hasn't been training for a few weeks he did extremely well in his first gala back, he came 1st in the 50m Back, 2nd in the 50m Free and also had a share of the spoils from a 1st in the 11u Freestyle relay, 1st in the 12u Freestyle relay and a 2nd place in the 11u Medley Relay. good job Bradley.
Also of note was our 10U Girls and our 10U Boys Freestyle relay teams who both finished 1st, we've got some really exciting talented swimmers coming through the club at the moment.
