Last night our Aquasprint team hosted Alliance SC at Andersonstown LC for the first Aquasprint gala of the Season. There were swimmers of both clubs competing in their first Aquasprints and all took it in their stride! There was some great racing and very close individual battles, however after the first medley relays and individual backstroke events, COB had a lead that was always going to difficult to break, and in the end City of Belfast won by 228 to 172 points, despite the final Freestyle relays being shared between the 2 clubs.
This season’s Aquasprint Captains, Livvy McCrea and Jericho Balgos (pictured), led the thanks during the post gala refreshments and wished Alliance luck for the rest of the season.
Well done to all the swimmers, and thank you to Linda and Andrew the 2 clubs’ Aquasprint coordinators, coaches, volunteer parents and older swimmers from both clubs and finally the staff at Andersonstown LC.
Our next Aquasprint is Saturday 9th January v Kilkeel (away)
