Round 2 of this year’s Diddy League competition saw the Junior team travel to Worcester to compete against clubs from Blythe, Leicester Sharks, Haden Hill, Walsall and Worcester. A second consecutive solid all round team performance in this round saw the team place a creditable 4th on the evening, leaving us 15th in the Division 2 table and looking likely to cement our position in the same league for next season.
Many of the individual races saw good swims, with several of them being PB times and also 5 race victories from Gemma, Sophia and Natasha. Even more pleasing was the depth of strong performances that came across the board in the relays from all swimmers. Victories in the team events came from the girls 10/u Medley Team, the girls 8×1 Freestyle Team and the Boys 12/u Freestyle team. Additional mentions must go to Ryan Witt for making his SASC debut in the 10yr old boys age group and also to the 11yrs boys age group of Joe R, Ben T, Woody G and Zac P who placed 2nd in both relays and in 3 out of their 4 individuals to earn plenty of strong points.
Final points on the evening were:
Blythe Barracudas: 236
Leicester Sharks ‘B’: 185
Worcester ‘B’: 132
Haden Hill: 118
