What an exciting gala! Right down to the last stroke of the last relay the cheering of both teams almost lifted the roof. The final score certainly doesn’t reflect how close the teams were.
Kilkeel were strong in A and B with Ellie Cunningham and Enda Sloan having excellent firsts. For Mid Ulster, Hannah, Calum, Annie and Ethan had three firsts and Simon had four. Louis had excellent swims in Breaststroke and Freestyle. In Breaststroke and Butterfly, Conall, Michaela, Alex, Grace and Lucy were outstanding. Freya, Ella, Kate, Therese, Grace, John and Grainne had a brilliant Gala. There was only a fraction of a second between Luke and Calum in D boys and between Hannah and Rachel in D girls. Poppy, Aoife, Sophie, Andrew and Conal and Karl all had PBs.
Well done all swimmers from both teams.
Gala captains for Mid Ulster were Rachel Tohill and Luke McCann. Mid Ulster received a great welcome in Kilkeel and enjoyed the excellent refreshments after the gala.
