PTL Gala v East Cavan

Mid Ulster Swimming Club won comfortably against East Cavan displaying great team spirit. The final score was 512: 593. We had a long journey down and an unfamiliar pool to contend with but the swimmers rose to the occasion. The older swimmers cheered on and supported the younger swimmers creating a good atmosphere in the pool.
We had a number of swimmers swimming up; Conor McCusker and Ollie Morriss swam up to B boys relay and swam brilliantly, Eoin Young and Luke O’Connor swam up for the C boys, again the boys did themselves proud, the C boys won their Frontcrawl relay.
69 swimmers recorded their fastest time this season, well done! There are a few swimmers I need to mention; Charlie Morriss was unstoppable, winning all his 5 races, Micheal Higgins smashed 4 of his races, coming first in all 4, Annie Kilpatrick and Simon Matterson won 3 races apiece, Eoin McEvoy was placed 1st twice and Luke O’Doherty came first in his backcrawl. Absolutely fantastic, well done!!
I want to thank the parents that accompanied us on the trip and helped on poolside; to Micky Cassidy and Andrew O’Neill for completing the difficult job of touch judges, to Paul O’Connor for working the desk recording results, to Lisa Oliphant and Paul Morriss for organising the swimmers and to John McConnell, Fiona McCusker, Dorothy McConnell, Briege Young, Mark Maguire and Paul Brewster for timekeeping. The parents’ attendance was vital as we are required to provide at least 9 adults to run every away gala. The coached are all volunteers and really need and appreciate the support of all parents in order to run the galas and time trials efficiently and safely. If everyone does a bit we will continue to grow from strength to strength.
