Congratulations to the Lecale and Olympia Aquasprint teams who met on Saturday 26th March in Andersonstown Leisure Centre. The Lecale side, captained by Jamie Hamilton and Aoife Masterson, were on top form again and over the forty events, seventeen swimmers secured twenty-seven PBs. Over all Lecale scored twenty-nine 1st places, twenty-six 2nd places and seventeen 3rd places. Both teams fought hard for every point but in the end Lecale finished with a well-deserved 243 points to Olympia's 167. We would like to thank Olympia for hosting an exciting meet and wish them well for the remainder of the Aquasprint season. Many thanks also to the volunteers from both clubs who organised the meet and helped out on the day. Click here for Lecale results.
