Kent Junior League (Posted on Tuesday, 24 November 2015)
Orpington Ojays set off for the final round of the Kent Junior League at the weekend with the extra excitement of the team travelling together to Dover by coach. Unfortunately, the excitement was reduced a bit as there was no heating on the coach and everyone arrived absolutely freezing! Despite the journey, our swimmers once again put in some of their best swims resulting in some great position finishes. Sadly though, we suffered some DQ's and there were some technical issues with the electronic timing on our lane but this didn't dampen our spirits.

A big well done to the entire team. It was great to see our younger swimmers coming into competitive swimming, and we hope to see you soon!
