We saw a real gutsy performance from our junior swimmers at the East Clwyd League who finished 4th place at today’s second round at Holywell despite being very low on numbers.
Today’s league meet coincided with many other events & commitments so we could only muster 9 girls and just 4 boys for the journey northwards.
But between them, they managed to cover 37 of the 41 events. In addition to swimming in their own age group, most had to swim up an age group, several swum up two age groups and one swam up 3 age groups!
The team finished a hard fought 4th place and despite fielding such a depleted team to last time, were only 16 points down on their performance in round one where they finished joint second.
Such committed swimming was rewarded with a group hug from Megan!
Thank you to two of our senior swimmers Morgan Davies & Aaliyah Robbins who gave up their time to come along to help with the team on poolside.
Thank you also to our travelling (voluntary) officials Megan, Pat & Bronwen along with parent Rachel Smith who filled in with timekeeping duties.
Second Round Result: 1st – Wrexham 183pts; 2nd – Flint 165pts; 3rd – Buckley 147pts; 4th – Welshpool 138pts; 5th – Mold 82pts; 6th – Connah’s Quay 0pts

Congratulations to the Diddy League team who yesterday came 4th in the Division, which hopefully will mean we’re will be moving up to Division 1.
Here’s a few pictures from the day.
