Well, the meet has now finished for another year, all that is left is a nervous wait to see who will be invited to the nationals in Swansea over Easter Weekend. It has been another successful day for IOASC at the SWN Regionals. Before I go through how well our swimmers did can I first say a massive thank you to all those who give up their time week in / week out. Huge thanks to the organizers and backroom staff of the SWN Regionals who make organizing such a massive event look easy. Big thank you to Liz, Dave, Catrin and the other IOASC coaches. The IOASC timekeepers, fundraisers, chairman, treasurer, secretary and anyone else I haven’t mentioned who do an amazing (and largely unsung) job behind the scenes. Take a bow.
As a club, we ended the meet with;
1 Gold Medal
4 Silver Medals
3 Bronze Medals
Ten top 5 finishes
Nine top 10 finishes
32 new Personal Best Times
This has been a very successful meet for IOASC by anyone’s standards. You should all be very very proud of yourselves.
