East Clwyd League – Final Round

IMG_20160618_125723Last Saturday was our sixth and final trip to Holywell for the third round in the Junior Competition of the East Clwyd League.

It was another great outing for our swimmers where once again they did themselves and the Club proud.

Well done to everyone who’s taken part in this year’s rounds.

This Saturday it was our turn to host the gala and great to see parents stepping forward to help with the many tasks that go hand-in-hand with running these events. Special mention must go to the following individuals – Isabella Jones & Janet Gittins who organized the door & raffle; Bronwen Poole & Rachel Smith for officiating; Paula Edwards along with Head Coach Peter Swanton for supervising our swimmers poolside and Rhian Owen who helped run the meet software & record results.

As in previous rounds it was once again a very close run thing between ourselves and Wrexham who just pipped us to the post:

1st Wrexham – 182½ points / 2nd Welshpool – 178½ points / 3rd Connahs Quay – 146 points / 4th Flint – 141 points / 5th Buckley – 106 points / 6th Mold – No team

A great result though for our Head Coach Peter Swanton and our swimmers. With no 11yr old girls available to swim this weekend, our younger swimmers did brilliantly to swim up an age group.

Congratulations to Wrexham who retain the Junior Trophy for 2016 as well as having won the Senior Trophy earlier this year. As for Sharks, we finished in second place in both the Senior and Junior rounds which is a great achievement.

Well done everyone on what has been a great performance across all rounds for both our Senior & Junior teams.
