Barnsley League Round 1 at Adwick 16 March 2019

Post date: 17-Mar-2019 11:44:20

At the first gala of the BML you are never sure what strength the other teams are going to field but I am pleased to say Armthorpe got it right with a winning performance at Adwick last night. Big well done to all swimmers young and not so young - lots of PB's and really close finishes to thrill the spectators. Many of our 10 year olds were competing for the first time and managed to hold their nerve and swim some good times. Our youngest swim Lauren Wood had us all on the edge of our seats in the 10 year girls relay as she was the last swimmer going in with a lead and the Adwick swimmer catching her up with Lauren just getting the touch to win the race. A special mention to our pocket sized cheerleader Grace Burton who came on poolside even though she wasn't swimming to support the team. A big feature last year was the team spirit on poolside and I was very pleased to see it was still there. On the negative side we had too many DQ's so we must cut them out for future galas. Overall, a winning margin of 30 represents a good result. Swimmers times are in the attached file and on the notice board at Armthorpe. Keep an eye out for the next BML team sheet which will be swum at Armthorpe on Sunday 31 March

Result: Wakefield 107 Adwick 119 Armthorpe 149 Chapletown 104
