On Saturday June 3rd the junior team travelled to Barnett Copthall to start the campaign to defend their Milton Keynes Junior League crown. Swimmers are born 2008 – 2005 so for the youngest swimmers this is their first taste of a league gala and they took to it admirably.
Guildford had strong opposition from Ealing, Epsom, Staines, Borough of Harrow and Leighton Buzzard and the team certainly responded brilliantly. Of 49 events they won 28, were 2nd in 17, with 3x3rd spots and 1x4th. In the 17 relay races their team spirit and prowess was evident winning all bar 2 when they were runners up.
Louise Bressler and Tegan Matthews won 2 events each and individual wins also came from Robin Simons, Kian Hooker. Alex Wrzesinski, Andrew Brett, Jamie Pickering, Connie Mortimer, Alex Paton, Evie Smith, Jamie Tappin and Louisa Hughes.
Coaches in attendance – Sally, Steve, Araceli and Sam – were delighted with the team performance and are looking forward to Round 2 on July 1st.
