Our young Aquasprint Gala Team have done us proud again, this time against Sliabh Beag from Monaghan. After a shaky start in the Medley Relays, our individual swimmers raced down the pool to give us 21 first places!
Team captains Nicholas Cleave and Amy Godfrey were part of one of the winning Freestyle Relay teams. It was then a nail-biting wait while the scores were calculated; Lecale were victorious by a close margin: 176 to 220.
Congratulations to all our swimmers, especially as there were some last minute changes due to illness. Our next Aquasprints Gala is 5th March against Mid Ulster.
Good luck to the PTLs next Saturday in Omagh - let's make it a hatrick!
Will all squad swimmers please confirm their availability for this meet asap. Warm up is in Omagh at 6pm. Bus will be in Downpatrick from 3.45pm and will leave at 4pm sharp.
We have decided that, given the distances and competing over tea time, we will stop at a fast food outlet before leaving Omagh so you may wish to bring a few pounds for a hot snack. We expect to be back in Downpatrick by approximately 11.30pm.
