Saturday night saw our young swimmers heading to Strood for the next round of the Kent Junior League. Strood is a cosy pool with the spectators really close to the action that makes for a great atmosphere.
Eve Peel set the tone for the evening with a win in the first race, the 100m IM. The rest of the team followed her lead and all raced incredibly well. The KJL is an excellent event and it's always nice to see our younger swimmers getting over their nerves, learning about competitions and making swim buddies for years to come. Sam Ryan, Louis Taylor, Ava Hickey, Charlotte Field and Lilia Fornasier all swam up an age group whilst also swimming their own age group!
The swimmers finished the evening exhausted on the Orpington Ojays cheer and a fabulous win with 284 points, 44 in front of second place. Congratulations to the entire team and thank you to all the parents, swimmers, coaches, team managers and officials on the night.
