Lecale take on Mid-Ulster in their first gala of the season

Club Name: Mid Ulster

Gala Date: 14.01.2017

Gala Venue: Greenvale Leisure Centre Magherafelt

Final score: Lecale 212 V Mid Ulster 188

Mid Ulster hosted Lecale on Sat 14th Jan. As it was Lecale’s first gala of the season there were a number of very nervous swimmers. Mid Ulster got off to a good start winning the A medley relay however the Lecale swimmers settled in well to win the rest of the relays, although there was only 0.7 sec between the teams in the C race.
This set the mood for the gala making the single races very exciting although Lecale gained points in back crawl there was nothing between the teams in the other strokes which kept the touch judges busy especially in B girls Breast stroke with only 0.4 sec between all the swimmers. Lecale went into the freestyle relay in the lead and held on to win the gala.

Mid Ulster would like to thank Lecale for a very competitive gala with a fantastic atmosphere which was very supportive and encouraging to all swimmers. With the entire B boys section off to see The Superheros at the Odessey. We had our very superheros in Cole Henderson and Connor O Neill from Group A, who were only competing in their second gala step up to swim in Group B. Cole achieved 4 PB’s with Connor Achieving 3 PB’s. The captains for the gala were Alex Johnston and Ethan Canavan. Lecale will next compete away against Ballymena on Saturday 18th February.
