Clevedon Swimmers began their Arena League campaign with a hard fought 4th place at Plymouth Life Centre on Saturday 12th October. Swimming against much larger clubs with a larger pool of swimmers (excuse the pun) Clevedon finished with 201 points, not far behind Weston Super Mare. In fact there were very few points separating 2nd and 4th place. The whole team rose to the occasion, supported each other brilliantly and even sported black and yellow face paint.
Noteable swims were Jacob Sell with a stunning 100 fly pb, Ben Penhale with an easy 200 IM win, Ella Jenkins with a 100 breastroke win and of course George Leaman coming out of retirement to win his 100 backstroke race. There were numerous other fantastic swims from all competitors who were an absolute delight to be with from the moment we boarded the coach at 10am to returning to Clevedon at 6pm.
The next round is Saturday 9th November - save the date!
