2019 Summer League Round 1

Saturday 27 April 2019 – Round 1 of the summer league was hosted by Marlborough penguins. The
summer league format is 50 sprint races which are a mix of individual races and relay races where
the teams swim for points against a number of local clubs making it a real team event.

The night opened with Tyler and Emily in the open individual medley where we came 2nd and 3rd
respectively followed by Ashton and Ava were both 2nd in very close 2 length butterfly races.
There was drama in the u16 4 length freestyle where a false start meant the race had to be rerun
and James came in 3rd overall.
The boys u12 medley relay team of Zac, Seb, Ashton and Filip were 2nd and the girls team of Eve,
Jessica, Kira and Freya P were 3rd with both teams taking valuable points for the team.
In the boys u14 2 length freestyle Harry had to settle for 2nd after pushing for 1st place all the way.
Ashton also took 2nd in a very close 2 length breaststroke race with the swimmer from Marlborough.
In the u16 4 length backstroke Aaron was superb, leading the race from start to finish whilst in the
girls race Thea got off to a poor start (due to not being able to hear the starter) but came through the field to take 2nd.
Ozzy won the 2 length freestyle by country mile in the u12; Max S was 2nd in the u14 fly and Eve was
2nd in the u12 backstroke.
Swindon were 3rd overall on the night, which was the expected result.

Well done everyone and see you all for round 2.

Summer league 2018 Round 1

Saturday 21 April saw the squad compete at Marlborough college in the 1st round of this year’s Moonraker summer league. The summer league is a mix of 50 individual and relays races across a number of different age groups which is a great opportunity to get some of the new junior squad members involved in club competitions. Along with our hosts, Marlborough Penguins, we were competing with Corsham and Warminster on the night.

The established squad members like Club Captains Alyx and Grace, Tyler, Annabel, Aaron and Olivia were at their usual great performances but it was the emerging talent in the under 12’s medley relay team who really showed us the promise of the junior squad members. For the boys this was Oscar, Harry, Ashton, Calum and Aiden and the girls Abigail, Freya, Molly and Ella whilst Seb, Ashton and Jacob swam up with Kyle in the boys U14 Medley relay and Alex joined Thea, Annabel and Amy in U14 girls.

Some great swims and lots to be proud of from the nights competition but still lots to learn in time for round 2 – Well done everyone and see you all again for round 2.

Final scores on the night were:
Warminster 142 points
Marlborough 138 points
Swindon 108 points
Corsham 108 points
