Club Name: Larne
Gala Date: 11th February
Gala Venue: Breifne, Co Cavan
Team points & winning team: Breifne 243 v Larne 157
Gala Highlights: A reduced team of junior swimmers from Larne Swimming Club made the long journey to Cavan on Saturday evening to face Breifne in our second Aquasprint gala of the season. After suffering a defeat to a strong team from Limavady in the previous meet, spirits were still high and the children were determined to do their best.
Racing was fast and furious from the outset, with Breifne storming to a convincing lead after the medley relays. The individual races were to follow with a continued show of strength from Breifne; Larne Group B and & D swimmers challenged well to notch up some wins for their club; some extremely close races raised the roof, as the racers were spurred on by their teammates and parents. The freestyle relays followed with a great win for the Larne D team. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be enough and the scores reflected the dominance of the Breifne team: Breifne 243 v Larne 157
Outstanding contribution or effort: A big shout out to all the children from Larne, especially those who are new to competing; everyone gave it their best and despite the result, showed great team spirit and determination. Special thankyou to those who made the journey and raced even though they were sick – unbelievable commitment!
Did anyone from the opposing team stand out? Louis Maguire – Group C boy; one to watch!
Next Gala – When & Where? At home to Cookstown, 24th March
Any other points of interest? Thanks to all the parents from Larne who showed such commitment to their club and their children by making the long journey to Cavan. Thanks also to Breifne for their hospitality and warm welcome; a special mention to Sasha and Martina for making sure everything ran so smoothly in the run up to the gala, as well as on the night.
