Round 1 of the 2015 National Arena League saw us host at Market Drayton. The gala ran extremely smoothly and from a performance perspective was a great night. With no fewer than 6 SASC Club team debuts, the team swam and supported brilliantly as a group collective and earned an impressive 2nd place finish on the night. The older and more experienced swimmers lead by example both in and out of the water and the newer team members got stuck in and raced well. We had 13 victories on the night, 3 of which were the last 3 relays of the night, which had us all leaving feeling like we had won overall! Race victories came courtesy of the following: Rob Cowley in the open men’s IM, breast and Free, Wil C in the open men’s Fly and both open men’s relays. Lucy F in the open ladies back, Ellie S in the open ladies Breast and the open ladies free cannon. Also, the 15/u boys medley team along with Michael D in the 15/u breast and fly and Tom R in the 15/u Back. We lie in 8th place in the division currently.
An awesome team performance, well done guys!!
