Arena League First Round Report & Results

Published: Tuesday, October 23, 2018

The Arena A team headed to Palatine, Blackpool for their first-round of the Arena League on the 13th October. For some swimmers, this was the first time competing in the Arena League and so was a welcome introduction into a more senior environment of swimming competitions.

The team finished up the afternoon with 194 points with the Boys 13/under relay team, made up by Bradley Snaylam, Jack Hepplestone, Tom Arkwright and Max Delaney bringing in 1st place in the freestyle relay and 2nd place in the Medley relay - well done lads!

Hannah Morris also gained two 1st places in the 50m Backstroke and 50m Butterfly individual events. Pia Murray also attended, gaining 1st place in Ladies Open 100m Butterfly event. 

Excellent swimming from all who attended and many thanks to our poolside coaches and helpers on the afternoon.
