Three Lecale swimmers qualified for the Ulster Age Groups, a long course event this year held in the excellent facilities at Bangor Aurora Aquatics Centre. Daniel Molloy swam his 200m backstroke event this morning, finishing with a PB of 2:44.35. Good luck to Daniel Mulholland and Conor Mahoney who compete over the weekend in the 100m and 400m freestyle respectively.
Well done to all the swimmers who took part in Lecale's annual St Patrick's meet tonight. There was a great atmosphere and great swims by all and a host of PBs.
We were delighted to welcome Mark Craig from Swim Ulster to the club tonight. Mark holds Swim Ulster's Talent Identification post and he spoke highly of the talent in Lecale and commented on the high number of teenage members that Lecale retains.
As always, many thanks to all the parents who helped on poolside tonight - thirsty work!

Lecale had an nail-biting meet against Ballymena on Saturday 15th March (almost as exciting as the Ireland-France match!) and just managed to edge ahead in the end with strong swims in the relays. Well done to all swimmers from both teams and many thanks to all the poolside and refreshment helpers.
Lecale PBs here.

The AquaSprints team traveled to Belfast yesterday and produced great swims by all the swimmers against City of Belfast. The teams were extremely well matched and half way through the gala both teams were on 100 points.
After many very close finishes Lecale were edged out of a win as the final score was ... Lecale 190 and COB 210.
After these great performances we are looking forward to the next AquaSprint gala at home on Saturday 15th March.
Full results will follow asap .......
