Team Managers Report - Diddy League Rd 3 17th June

Posted on 23 June, 2017 at 10:40

In the final Diddy Gala of 2017 we came an undeserved 5th.   We had some very strong individual wins particularly on Butterfly from Molly and Alfie. Jade produced a great swim on the backstroke to take first place. We did equally well on the relays but the boys under 11 produced a stunning performance to win their relays in commanding style – In one race more than half a length ahead.

The swimmers were all very busy in this gala, swimming more races than normal and in some cases two age groups up. Several swam more than 7 races, Sam and Alfie showed just how good they are when they raced individuals two age groups up and matched the pace of main group of swimmers each time.

The three captains who came to help the team out, unanimously agreed that the star swimmers should be given to the boys 11&U team that's Archie Bryan, Samuel Branton, Alfie Fisher and Sam Hill, for a fine team performance and being willing to swim additional events to fill in.

Thanks to Simon Sanderson, Amelia Sanderson, Simon Hill and Emma and Lee Fisher and Sheila Motyl who have supported these Diddy Galas and made your child's team swimming possible for at least the last 6 years.

As Julie and I move on from Diddy Galas, we can reflect and see that every year the club produces and group of enthusiastic swimmers who rapidly improve during this race period. It is a pleasure to witness their enjoyment, and its extra special when its coupled to a win.
