This gala is held each year in memory of a very talented ISC swimmer, Jamie Rigby, who sadly passed away at a young age. This year, ISC swimmers gave it their all, starting with a minute kick session in Jamie’s memory.
From start to finish, it was a close competition across the 6 teams taking part;
ISC, Belper Marlins, Shepherd, Southwell, Eckington, and Derby Phoenix. Unfortunately, Etwall and Buxton had to pull out of the gala at the last minute.
Our ISC swimmers were amazing across all the age groups with both outstanding relays and individual performances.
Well done to Belper Marlins for winning the gala with ISC coming a close 2nd.
Final results were:
Belper Marlins 306 points
Ilkeston 277 points
Eckington 250 points
Derby Phoenix 205 points
Southwell 144 points
Shepherd 98 points.
A big thank you goes out to all the teams who took part, the supporters, coaches, team managers, judges, time keepers, ‘office’ and general helpers who gave up their time to make the gala such a success.
An extra big thank you goes to Joshua Bestwick for organising the gala.
Well done to you all and hope to see you again next year!
