Juniors find it tough but deliver some amazing performances!
Competing in the 1st round of the M11 Junior Swimming League at Basildon on Sunday, Penguins swimmers produced some outstanding swims against some of the Countries leading junior clubs – please do not underestimate the quality of opposition we are competing against!
There were 19 PB’s set in the 32 individual events and some swimmers were breaking times that had only been set the night before in the Essex League gala, also at Basildon!
Final points at the gala:
|1st.||Basildon & Phoenix||309|
|8th.||Newham & Uni of East London||148|
There is no doubt the most impressive results on the night were posted by the 9 year old girls and boys teams, which is great news for the Club’s future.
At the gala, the Club secured a total of 13, 2nd, 3rd & 4th places, 9 of those were delivered by the 9 year old swimmers. Congratulations go to Sophia Dixon, Lily Mills, Evie Knight, Ailie To, Zac Josin, Jesse Howard, Theo Perrin & George Jones.
