What a fantastic way to round off the Micro league season with a resounding 119 points to not only see us finish safely in division A but finish in 5th place overall, an amazing achievement for the swimmers and Chorley Marlins. Well Done to every single swimmer, coach and parent that have helped us to a great result.
Head Coach 'Mary Parkinson' had this to say "what a fantastic result, the swimmers have swum really well all season, especially seeing as we have just moved up into the top division. I am so proud of every swimmer that has taken part".
Among those fine performances were our girls 12/U medley relay team who finished in 1st place as well as our girls 10/U freestyle relay team who also brought home the gold/4 points.
Individual performances of note were:
Bradley Astles - 1st 11/U Back 50m
Lizzie Woodcock - 1st 10/U Back 50m
Alex Highcock - 1st 12/U Breast 50m
Connor Stevens - 1st 10/U Fly 50m.
A special mention must go to Stephen Hancock who withdrew from the Salford Gala's afternoon session to take part and also Jonny and Louise Rothwell who also should have been in a golf tournament and withdrew to swim for the team. Thank you all, it's really great that you were there for us, and as a result we finished higher than we imagined possible at the start of the season.
The results for the final round are attached below, and also below is a snapshot of some of the statistics from this season. Well Done to Connor Stevens who finished the top of the tree for his individual performances, and also Lizzie Woodcock who finished in 8th place in the top 10 individual girls events. Also
Also sorry girls but we now have conclusive proof that boys are better than girls :) have a look at the tables below that show that the boys finished 4th in all ages and the girls finished 8th. I'm sure that that won't be the case for long knowing how competitive you all are :)
