GOOD LUCK LISBURN
Can anyone not available to swim should let Lynn know by Thursday 5th May. This is a large team to organise and last minute changes to the team mean swimmers may not get their last chance to swim in AquaSprint 2016.
Lets go Lisburn Lets go: Team Selection v Larne
Lisburn 184 Banbridge 216
Last minute glitches mostly due to illness meant the Lisburn Team started with 6 swimmers out of action, this was always going to be hard to recover.
Even though the Lisburn A Medley relay team consisting of Charlotte Bunn, Chrissy Hopkins, Finlay Slattery and Alfie Shawe recorded another fastest time of 1.28.23, Banbridge took this relay easily with the outstanding performance of Katie McFarlane on the Fly. Lisburn B Group Medley and Freestyle relay teams consisting this time of Christo Tsoutsas, Rihanna Lawlor, Moya O’Kane and Bryn Fitzpatrick, have a flawless record in the competition so far and show strength and determination. C group Medley and Freestyle Relay swimmers Zak Tsoutsas, Ava McNamara, Toni Jamison and James McMath were touched into 2nd place by 3 1/100ths of a second in the Medley Relay and again a close shave on the Freestyle Relay, although this makes the relays exciting to watch the points scored at the end of the gala tell a different story. D group had an impressive finish to the Gala with the Freestyle team, Sasha Quinn, Lucy Robson, Luca McAtarsney and Noah Poots finishing 1st and going under the 60 second barrier with a time of 58.76 for the first time this season. Team Captain Sasha Quinn had outstanding performances and was warmly welcomed back after a long term injury.
A group and B group swimmers, Lucy Latuske, Haydn Maguire and Criofan McCarney Savage had their first AquaSprint experience this season and all recorded personal best times in their individual swims – well done guys!
Moya O’Kane B group girls, recorded 1st place position on all 4 individual events and bagged herself 2 personal best times along the way in Frontcrawl and Breaststroke.
With 2 more AquaSprint galas to go before the final, Lisburn will travel to Coleraine this Saturday to compete against Coleraine Swimming Club. The bus will leave the Lagan Valley Leisureplex at 2.30pm. Lets Go Lisburn!!
To keep you all informed Swim Ireland released their new Anti Bullying Policy a little while a go. Please take some time to read this with your swimmer.
You will notice that Swim Ireland is asking everyone to sign up to this Anti Bullying promise. We are asking all the children to do the same.
During this week notes will go home which should be signed and returned to your coach.
Thanking you all in advance
