Posted on: July 1st, 2019 by John Donovan No Comments

Congratulations to our Junior League squad who once again qualified for the final in this years M11 Junior League campaign, a fantastic achievement for our young swimmers.

The day didn’t start too well for us, as the coach taking us to Basildon turned up 30 mins late and then on the way to the pool, the coach tried to go under a bridge that was too low. Needless to say the bridge won that contest. Turning up to a gala that you are supposed to be hosting isn’t a great start but everyone at the pool was very understanding and with the help of all of our wonderful volunteers and officials we got the job done. Well done and thank you to all of the parents who helped out, you were all fantastic.

The swimmers took everything in their stride and gave it their all, up against some big power house clubs. There were some great performances in the pool from all of the swimmers and Anaconda managed to secure some podium finishes in this hotly contested final. Asa Williams (10) ended his fantastic campaign with some outstanding swims. Touching home 1st in the 10yrs 50m butterfly(41.48) and the 10yrs 50m backstroke (36.24). Swimming up an age group Asa also came 2nd in the 11yr 50m backstroke (36.34). Iris Court had another strong swim in the 11yrs 50m breaststsroke(40.44) finishing in 2nd place and Alec Selwyn (12) signed off his Junior league career with a 3rd place finish in the 12yrs 50m breaststroke(38.69).

Another campaign in the top division comes to an end, with many positives to take away for the swimmers and hopefully to build on for next season. All of the coaches would like to thank every swimmer who took part in this years Junior league for all of their hard work and commitment throughout, you were a credit to the club. Congratulations to Camden Swiss on winning the league and good luck in the Area and hopefully National final.
