Division 4 Barnsley Minors Swimming League. 7th March 2020      Venue Rossington

The first swim gala of the year saw some amazing swims from the Spa squad.

Everyone contributed to what was an exciting, competitive event.

Dearne came out on top with Rossington not far behind. Spa and Knottingley battled it out for 3rd and 4th, with Knottingley narrowly taking 3rd.

A depleted Spa squad made every effort to stay in touch, with some fantastic performances throughout. The more experienced squad members stepped up to the challenge by competing in the higher age groups as well as their own, with the Dartes quartet of Rose, Aimee, Louie and Ben, taking part in 36 events between them. Presume they all slept well ?

The first timers also held back the nerves and swam like seasoned veterans.

The STAR SWIMMER award of the day has to go to Louie Booth, who swam his heart out in 5 races as he was the only under 10 boy we had,(the others were on a pre arranged cub scout event). Well done Louie you were Awesome.

The team of the day had to go to the Boys 12 years relay team who were untouchable in both the medley and Freestyle races. Well done Ben, Lindon, Louie and James.

A huge thank you to ALL the kids whe took part and also to the parents/carers/brothers/sisters/grandparents etc who got them there and even stayed around to cheer them on.
