Lisburn AquaSprint squad travelled to Cookstown tonight for their first meet of the season. We had a lot of new faces taking part for the very first time across all four age groups.
All took it in their stride and the AS Lions roared to a well deserved win, 213 to 187, a solid early season victory.
Many thanks to all our parents and volunteers who make this possible.
Great night, tonnes of fun, loads of happy smiling faces.
Full report and results to follow.
Final evening of racing covered all five 100 meter races. Swimmers from Dev 2 right through to the National senior squad where competing. Some tired bodies by the end but lots of happy smiling faces. Congratulations too all our swimmers over the three days of competition.
Again a massive thanks to our fantastic volunteers tonight. Your help is greatly appreciated. Can’t come close to running these events without volunteers. Thank you.
