It was a slightly depleted team that descended upon Gosport on Saturday 14th September for Round 3 of the Rother League. With 15 selected swimmers unavailable on the night, those that were there needed to dig deep. But each and every swimmer did themselves proud!
There were 6 individual wins (Joanna, Becky, Issy L, Hannah W, Rosie E and Mia) and the Boys U/12 (James P, Arthur, Matthew, Sam) and U/16 (Harvey, Lewis J, Alex S, Lucas) medley teams also won their events.
Even more impressively, just two weeks into the new season, there were 16 new Personal Bests (Mia, Lewis J x 2, Matthew, Rosie E, Lewis P, Hannah W, Alex S, Trinity, George x 2, James P x 2, Rory S, Ben W and Eleanor).
As a result, Alton finished a very creditable 3rd on the night (just 8 points away from 2nd!) spurred on by some great (and very vocal!) team spirit. Well done all!
Next up, the National Arena League Round 1. Bring it on!
