In this second round of the League we went to Stocksbridge and came away with a very creditable 3rd place against very strong opposition. This is a very difficult division with some excellent swimmers. An excellent example being the Mens Open 50 Freestyle race, where we came 3rd in a time of 26.09secs. There were lots of very good swims but the best two pbs were Lois Fillingham knocking 4.04 seconds off 50 Fly and Nicholas Honeybone taking 5.29 seconds off his 50 Breast time. Alex Pollards 25 mtr time of 11.75 in the final race of the day gave us another point over Chapletown. Armthorpe were the only team to have no DQ's, I am very pleased with that because it shows a disciplined approach to our swimming. This Division is going to be tight and we need every point we can get. The final result was:

Chapletown - 102 Armthorpe - 123 City of Sheffield - 136 Stocksbridge - 132

We are now 3rd in the Division a very creditable performance - well done to everyone who swam.

ps a special thank you to Thalia Woods who stepped in at the absolute last minute due to the sickness of a swimmer - that showed excellent team spirit.

pps how could I not mention the best pb of all - Seth Brooke 6.23 seconds off his 50 Freestyle time. SORRY SETH
