The Lecale Aquasprint Gala Squad had a fantastic start to their season with a good win over Alliance in Belfast this Saturday. There were some close finishes but the relay teams managed 7 out of 8 wins. Team captains Daniel Molloy and Megan Rodgers won 3/4 and 4/4 of their races respectively. Even though it has been a slow winter of training for Lecale recently, the team were fresh and enthusiastic; no fewer than 52 PBs were recorded! Congratulations to the whole team. Full results can be found here.
