JFL C Final – Gala Report

Well done to all swimmers who took part in the ‘C’ Final the Junior Fenland League at Newmarket Leisure Centre on Saturday. We were competing against teams from West Norfolk, Mildenhall, St. Neots and Chatteris, and we did brilliantly, coming 3rd overall, just 4 points off 2nd place.

Our swimmers on the night were: Alex C, Anna B, Anna I-K, Ellen H, Emily, Freddy M, Freya, Grace, Jack B, Josh, Lewis K, Livia, Matteo, Mary B, Milly, Mya, Ollie, Sam and Tom C. Our 19 swimmers managed to achieve a sensational seven first place finishes and 14 PBs. Well done and huge praise to all our swimmers. We came away with:

A tremendous two-out-of-two first places for Ollie and an excellent one each for Anna B, Anna I-K, Emily, Matteo and Tom C.

A terrific two PBs each for Anna B, Grace and Milly.

A wonderful one PB for Ellen H, Emily, Freya, Jack B, Josh, Lewis, Matteo and Tom C.

A big thank you to Tom, Josh, Emily and Milly who were swimming in their last JFL. And a special mention to Sam and Lewis who swam all the events in their age group: well done boys!

Thanks to everybody who helped on the night: Coach Pippa, Lauren, Jamie and Karen Kincaid, who were all poolside with our swimmers, David for judging and Lisa for timekeeping. And thank you to all the parents, grandparents and siblings who came to watch and cheer, and helped create a great atmosphere!

Finally, a very, very big thank you to Trish who has organised, championed and inspired the JFL team for the past two years. All times are now on the database.IMG_8232jfl final 17
