Nuneaton Junior League 2014 – Round 1 – Saturday 5th April, Worcester

Round 1 of this year’s Junior League saw the team travel to Worcester Swimming Pool to compete against teams from Kingsbury, Worcester, Cheadle and local teams Northgate and Oswestry.  With 2 of these opposing teams coming down a division last year, they proved to be tough opposition.  Despite this, the team rose to the team occasion as ever and produced some great individual and team results.  Leading by example was the Junior Girls Captain Gemma H, who won the 11/u 50 Fly and Free and placed 2nd in the 12/u Back and then teamed up with Jess M, Anya P and Sophia M-E to win the 11/u Medley Relay and place 2nd in the Free relay.  Other female victories came from Lucy A in the 12/u Fly and Free and Sophia in the 11/u Back, while other runner up spots were earned by Tasha in the 10/u Free, Sophia in the 11/u Breast plus the 12/u Medley Team of Lucy A, Dani G, Jess M and Lily O.  Leading the way for the boys was their captain Woody who won the 12/u 50 Back and then was joined by Zac, Joe R and Ben T to place 2nd in both of their relays.  Ben also came runner up in the 12/u 50 Breast, while the new 9/u boys free team of Archie D, Ben A, Jonny U and Callum P earned a great 2nd place too. All 4 of these 9yr old boys were making their SASC debut on the night, as were Henry S, Matthew H, Sean W, Jess M and Dani G. Well done to the whole team for an encouraging overall performance.
