The final round of the National Arena Swimming League was held at Hucknall Leisure Centre on Saturday evening. It was another very competitive gala, and after several swimmers pulled out last minute due to illness, which couldn’t be helped, it did make it a harder gala than it would have been. However, with that being said, the swimmers that attended stepped up and together we raced well and came out with 4th place!
There were a total of 13 first places, 8 second places, and 3 third places.
A total of 5 team PB’s and 12 individual PB’s were recorded.
Lewis Wright achieved a Club Record in the 100m Breaststroke in a time of 1.14.02. Lewis has beaten his record in this event on 3 occasions, so far in the past three competitions!
As usual the Open Boys (William Wright, Lewis Wright, Daniel Sloan, Charlie Palmer, Owen Sheehan, William Foster) with another brilliant Freestyle Cannon at the end of the gala finishing in first place. Putting their foot to the peddle to finish nearly a half a length away from the rest of the pool!
Overall Placings; Falcon (205), Worksop (198), Daventry (183), Team Ilkeston (175), Dronfield (168), Long Eaton (121)
In all three rounds of the competition, the following stats have been recorded:
Top 3: 72 (28 – 1st, 29 – 2nd, 15 – 3rd)
PB’s: 47 (18 Team PB’s)
Club Records: 8 Records
Thanks to our poolside officials, team managers, t-keepers and coaches that stepped in to help with the running of the gala on the night!
