Saturday 8th July saw the third and final round of the Peanuts League for this year.
Although we had problems in trying to pull a full team together, and in the end we had a number of boys swim up to cover, what a job they all did!!
At the end of the evening we came 5th on the night but 11th overall in the league and some great efforts and excellent team spirit from those present, well done to you all.
This does however mean that next season we will be moved to league 2, but an opportunity to walk away with the league 2 trophy next year, so there is the challenge and target for our young swimmers next year
There were some excellent swims with an occasional issue and unfortunately a couple of DQs, but these are things that can be learnt from and resolved, so please go talk to your coach about them.
