JFL Round 5 – Peterborough September 9th

The penultimate JFL of the season took place on Saturday, Sept 9th at the Regional Pool in Peterborough. We were competing against teams from: Huntingdon, Peterborough, Deepings and First Strokes Godmanchester. Our wonderful team of 14 swimmers and their various family members enjoyed a very swift evening of swimming. I can’t remember when a JFL finished in just under an hour and a half!!

Our swimmers on the night were: Alex, Andrew, Anna I K,  Eleanor, Freddy, Freya, Grace, Jack B, Jack H, Livia, Mary B, Matteo, Mya and Phoebe.  We had 40 individual races and the team amassed a fabulous 26 PB’s on the night. More importantly, NOT ONE DQ!!! Awesome.

Our first time JFL swimmers on the night were Grace ( Pooky) and Mya – fantastic swims girls – well done to you both. Special mention also to Freya, who knocked a very impressive 9 seconds off her backstroke and to Phoebe and Matteo, who both won their races, again in the backstroke – has there been a Backstroke Workshop going on in training recently???

And so on to the PB count..

A very impressive 3 PB’s each to Alex and Freya – a great result on the night!

An outstanding 2 PB’s each to Eleanor, Freddy, Grace, Jack B, Mary B, Matteo, Mya and Phoebe – all the hard work is paying off!

And a Wonderful 1 PB each to Andrew, Anna I K , Jack H and Livia – Well done everyone.

A massive Thank You to Junior Coach Pippa, who stepped in for Karl on the night and to Emma for Judging, Deryck for Timekeeping and to Mark and Sam for being poolside with the swimmers – marshalling them and handing out the goodies from the PB Bag. Apologies to those parents who may have had to listen to the squeaky duck toys on the drive back……..

The Final of the JFL will take place on October 7th – the venue is yet to be confirmed but do please make a note of the date. Invitations will be going out very shortly. All times are now on the database.
