JFL Round 4 – Deepings July 8th

Our JFL team travelled to Deepings St James last Saturday evening for round 4 of the event. The competitors came from St Neots, Deepings, March and City of Peterborough. We had a super team of 13 on the night – get well soon to a couple of swimmers who couldn’t make it due to illness – Anna IK and Mary B – we missed you!

The team consisted of Alex, Andrew, Anouk,Caitlin, Ellen H, Jack B, Leila, Lewis, Matteo, Matthew, Ollie, Sam and Weronika. Thank you so much to everyone who gave up their evening to travel to the event. Out of the 37 races that we had, swimmers achieved 26 PB’s…. that’s right…26!!!

A Fabulous Four each to Weronika and Lewis, a PB in each stroke and a first place finish for Weronika in the Breastroke.

A Tremendous Three each for Anouk, Ellen, Leila and Matteo.  Special mention to Anouk who swam up 2 age groups in the Backstroke and has gone through the cut off for both and to Leila, who saved the best till last , knocking almost 10 seconds off her IM!!

A Terrific Two for Jack B – one of which was for his IM race – never having raced it before – great work Jack.

A Wonderful One each for Alex,Caitlin, Ollie and Sam – Well done to all of you.

A huge “Thank You” to everyone who helped on the night – Karen and Paula who were marshalling the swimmers and keeping hold of the all important PB Bag! Thank you also to Deryck and Vinny for timekeeping on our lane – the event couldn’t have taken place without your help. And as ever, last but not least to Coach Karl for helping the swimmers all evening.

The penultimate round will be on September 9th in Peterborough. Invitations will be going out after the Cambridge Open next weekend, so do please check your emails. All times are now on the database.
