The team return from Cor­by tri­umphant after win­ning the Junior League Grand Final for the fifth time.

Well done to all swim­mers who took part in the Junior Swim League and ensured City of Leeds came out on top in all 3 rounds. The Grand Final was an excit­ing after­noon with lots of fast rac­ing and fun, and it was great to see you all sup­port­ing each oth­er and work­ing togeth­er as a team. Out of 49 races, City of Leeds bagged 28 1st place fin­ish­es, which helped us claim over­all vic­to­ry over sec­ond placed Guild­ford by just 10 points! An out­stand­ing per­for­mance by all.

Spe­cial men­tion to Daniel Ran­som (9 yrs) and Anna Ashcroft (10 yrs) who received top boy and girl awards respec­tive­ly for their per­for­mances in the indi­vid­ual events, some of which were meet records.

Par­ents, thank you for all the effort that went in to sup­port­ing the team; you were all excel­lent, you looked good and it real­ly helped to moti­vate the swimmers.

Well done to the swim­mers, coach­es, team man­agers and sup­port­ers for a fan­tas­tic event and an out­stand­ing victory.
