City of Belfast SC Aquasprint team put in a superb effort last night , but lost our to a talented Sliabh Beagh team in Monaghan.
The final score was COB 184; Sliabh Beagh 216, but in truth the gala was much closer than the result suggests. There were many tight finishes which just went the way of the home team, but all our COB swimmers can be rightly proud of their efforts. The nature of the racing contributed to a great atmosphere inside Monaghan Leisure Centre.
Special mention must go to our debutants Micheal Devlin, Ruaridh O’Brien and young Ben Heatherington who all swam superbly, and to ‘birthday boy’ Jake Bowden. There were many pbs on the night and parents and coaches from both clubs were delighted with the standard of swimming.
Thanks to Sliabh Beagh for being such gracious hosts. And a special thank you to all the parents who made the journey down to Monaghan.
Our next Aquasprint is on Saturday 20th May away to Lecale SC in Downpatrick.
