ARENA LEAGUE 2013……
Well done to all the swimmers that competed in round one and two of the Arena League (Premier Division). Both rounds were really exciting, especially round one against Bournemouth A squad, where the positions changed many times throughout the gala. That battle was lost by only 2 points, but it still gave us a third position behind Plymouth Leander, and Bournemouth.
The second round saw us a comfortable third with Plymouth winning it, Cardiff second, Bridgend third and Carmarthenshire, West wilts and Newport in fourth, fifth and sixth respectively. There were some great individual and relay performances in both rounds, with most swimmers getting faster for the second round.
For many swimmers, it was their first time to swim in an Arena League, and they did a great job, as the pressure is much higher than a normal gala, and they had to swim against many British Champions.
The results and points of the first two rounds has positioned Bridgend in the A final again this year which is a great result as Bridgend have less swimmers and squads than many of the other teams in the Premier Division.
Thanks to all our officials and helpers on the day and parents for their support. The final will be Held in Millfield on Sat 14th Dec at 11 am, so we need to step it up again. The bus will be leaving Ynysawdre at 8:15am
Could all swimmers (including those who were selected for the previous rounds) wear their Arena League t-shirts and assemble at Ynysawdre pool at 08:05am for a team photo before departing for Millfield
Well done all
