National Swimming Arena League – Premier Division
The Final rounds of the arena league took place at the weekend with Division One in Bury and the Premier Division over at Liverpool Aquatics.
The Premier Division had to face tough competition again with all the teams taking part pulling out all the stops. With 10 1st place wins, 2 2nd place and 6 3rd place finishes the swimmers had to work extremely hard for those all important points.
Our first win came once again from the Boys 15/U Freestyle Relay team consisting of Sean Muscroft, Ewan Miller, David Richardson and Aaron Kirchin Brown. Further wins came from, David Richardson in the 15/U 100 Back swimming a long course NQT, Oliver Houghton in the 13/U 100 Back, Leah Evans in the 15/U 100 Butterfly, Catherine Parker in the Girls Open 100 Back again swimming a long course NQT, Scott Hathaway in the Boys Open 100 Back, Sean Muscroft in the 15/U 100 Free, Adam Ravenscroft in the 15/U 100 Breast, Andy Bushell in the Boys Open 100 Free and finally the Boys 15/U Medlay Relay Team made up by David Richardson, Adam Ravenscroft, Ewan Miller and Sean Muscroft.
All that’s left for us to do now is to wait and find out whether we have been able to do enough to reach the National Arena Swimming League at Sheffield in April 2012.
