Barnsley League Round 3 Sunday 9 July

posted 12 Jul 2017, 01:45 by Pete Hardy
We were at Stocksbridge again for round 3 of our division 2 galas. It was good to have Molly Grayson back in the team. I am not going to pick any individuals out because this was a really good TEAM performance. The atmosphere was good and everyone was supportive of each other. Many swimmers swam strokes they don't normally swim or swam up an age group and nobody complained they just got on and did the job which was very pleasing. The swimmers attitude along with their performance gave us a very creditable 2nd place just 3 points behind City of Sheffield. We have come 2nd in each of the galas this year which has put us into 1st position in the league. It is that consistency of swimming and the discipline of again getting no dq's that has made us the team to beat. We have the last gala in September so lets continue in this mode after the summer break.
Final result was:    City of Sheffield  139    Armthorpe    136    Chapletown     99        Scunthorpe    115
I believe the league position is;    Armthorpe            412
                                                            Scunthorpe            396
                                                            City of Sheffield    348
                                                            Chapletown            317
Its tight but lets go for it!
