Our first home Aquasprint meet proved to be another close call. Limavady just edged ahead to finish 206 points to Lecale's 194. Again loads of PBs and great team work and sportsmanship from both sides. Thank you to the parents for providing and manning the buffet and volunteering on poolside.

While the St Patrick's Club Gala was in full swing in Downpatrick, five Lecale swimmers, accompanied by Head Coach, Brendan, represented Lecale at the PTL Southern Area Heats in Lurgan. This was a well attended meet, with many of the higher division clubs represented, but Amy Godfrey, Daniel Mulholland, Orla Mulholland, Ellen Murphy and Laura Murphy were undaunted and put in great performances. Between them they notched up 9 PBs in 14 events, with Ellen and Orla achieving PBs in every one of the events they entered.
Best placed was Amy who flew up the pool in the 50m fly and was left wondering what might have been after a slow touch that must have added a full second on to her time! She still managed to come 4th and just missed out on qualification for the PTL finals. Orla wiped almost 8 seconds off her PB in 50m fly but star of the night was undoubtedly Daniel who, despite being one of the youngest competitors in the boys 10 and under section, put in some great performances and took nearly 12 seconds off his PB in 50m breast and 5 seconds in his 50m back.
Most important, though, the five represented their club with great pride and
dedication, demonstrating sporting behaviour throughout.

Well done to the Lecale squad who swam against Ballymoney last night. It was such a close contest that it wasn't until the final events that a clear winner emerged. Ballymoney finished with 203 points to Lecale's 197.
