Arena League Round 2

CWSC Performance and Development swimmers showcased a fantastic example of fearless racing last weekend at the Arena League Round 2 in Watford. Regarded as the underdogs in the Premier League due to almost all swimmers having to swim in the age group/s above...or even the senior age group (!), the team finished in an outstanding 5th position.

With team spirit at it's highest - half a mind on processes, half a mind on resilience - every swimmer stepped up and swam out of their skin. Well done!

Multiple racers pulling more than their weight for the team included Suki Griffiths, Lavinia Ricca, Thomasina Grove, Edward Whittles, Aryaan Din, William Rudd and Herbie Bingham. Not to mention club friend Reiss Ormonde Cunningham and our very own coach Holly Taylor. Holly galiantly opened the club's campaign with the senior 200 IM - probably regretting her entry in the event half way through the race, it was a fantastic effort and good for the swimmers to support and see the coaches pulling their weight. Perhaps Alexander, Keith or Marina may swim in the next round? (!!!).

A huge well done to all swimmers and thank you to all swimmers, coaches and supporters for creating such a fun, team first atmosphere.
