The AquaSprint team had a very exciting meet against strong competition from Newry on Saturday. The finishes were tight and cheers from supporters boosted the swimmers enormously. The close match continued throughout the meet with Lecale Swimmers securing some amazing PB’s in their second gala, but the Newry swimmers pulled out all the stops securing victory with final points Lecale 189 to 211 Newry.
As always, thank you to the many parents from both clubs who helped out on poolside and with organising the buffet and thanks to Newry for a great evening of swimming.
And finally a huge congratulations to all swimmers from both clubs who swam brilliantly and did themselves proud.
