Saturday evening found the Bottisham JFL Team at Newmarket for the 2nd round, which we were hosting. We were up against teams from Boston, Deepings, Ely and Thetford.
Our small but determined team consisted of: Jack B, Josh V, Emily C, Eleanor, Freddy M, Matthew, Elana, Luna, Andrew, Freya, Justin, Livia, Phoebe and Weronika. Junior Coach Pippa was poolside as was Head Coach Karl – coping admirably with his jetlag.
We were also joined by some of our older swimmers: A massive thank you to Tara, who did the announcing on the night. Lauren, who kept the officials supplied with sweets and thank you to Sasha, who was assisting Tara on the officials table – you were all brilliant!
Thanks also to Guy – most of you won’t have seen him though.. Guy was inputting all the data on the night from his vantage point in the Tech Box, which is conveniently situated to the side of the start blocks.
More brilliant people who helped were our Dynamic Duo; Tracey and Janice, who were on the admission table and sold raffle tickets.
Huge Thanks to our Bottisham officials on the night – Suzy, Emma and Gordon. These events cannot run without officials so I am grateful that you could help.
And now to the important stuff…. the results!
We had an amazing 29 PB’s!!!!
A Wonderful One each for Livia, Phoebe and Jack B and Josh V. Both Phoebe and Jack B were first time JFL swimmers, and in Phoebe’s case, first ever swimming gala. Well done to all of you!
A Terrific Two for Elana, Eleanor, Freddy M and Matthew. Awesome efforts in races that I know you wouldn’t necessarily choose!
A Tremendous Three each for Emily, Freya and a slightly injured Weronika – we hope you are recovered now!
And A Fantastic Four for Andrew and Justin!!! What a night you had. Great work!
The next round will be on the evening of June 10th in Kings Lynn. Please make a note of the date. Invites will be going out soon.
