Great turn out for 2nd round of the Rother LeagueGreat turn out for 2nd round of the Rother League.
A huge team of swimmers turned out for the second round of the Rother League at Basingstoke on Saturday 7th June. This round was the relays round and there were some excellent performances on the night where Isle of Wight Swim Team finished fourth overall and also took an individual ward in the only individual event, the 100 IM for under 14 girls.
Every swimmer can be proud of their performances on the night and the competition produced some very close racing especially considering that the age categories meant many of our swimmers were swimming up at least one year. Notable swims on the night that were worth an extra mention were the boys open team of Aiden, Alex, Michael and James who produced a fantastic time of 49.70 sec in the 4 x 1 freestyle relay, the U16 girls team of Beth, Abi M , Megan and Amber who were pipped on the touch into second place in the 4 x 1 Medley relay and Michael and Tom in the U16 2 x 2 breaststroke relay. In the only individual event of the night, the U 14 100 IM, Abi L took the girls title for the Isle of Wight in a new personal best time of 1.11.25 sec.
Big thanks to Gav for the organisation and to the parents who also travelled and helped with the timekeeping and whipping on the night.
