An exciting day of racing in Blackpool as City of Leeds triumph in the Northern Final for a seventh time.
We would like to congratulate all of you on your behaviour, cheering, team spirit, swimming, and most importantly, winning the National Junior League Northern Final. You were all ace and we are very proud of you.
This is the seventh time we have won the Northern Final after victories in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2017.
The team achieved a whopping 32 first place finishes (4 more than last year), and placed in the top 3 in every event. Back to hard training now, ready to put up a fight in the National Final on 25th November in Corby.
It was great to see all the parents having so much fun on the balcony as you cheered for your team. Thank you for all the support you gave to each of the swimmers. Let’s see if we can go to the final with not just the best swimmers, but the best supporters as well.
The team would like to thank Kim Mathias and Meron Gebre for their fantastic team managment, and also David Broome, Jackie Broome and Vicky Spencer for their help on the day.
Good luck to City of Leeds, Southport, Tynemouth and Leicester Sharks who move forward to the National Final in November.
The team for the National Final will be announced soon.
Well done, everyone!
