Munster Grade B U.L January 16th

The first gala of 2013 saw a new venture for Munster swimming, UL pool was the venue for the meeting of all of Munster Clubs. A massive Grade B gala with 347 swimmers held in the awesome 50m pool which forms a large part of the sports complex in UL. What a challenging start to the new year for all.

Oweing to the large number of entries the 800m and 1500m freestyle were not held and a decision was made on the day not to run the 100m freestyle event as time would not allow, which was a pity for all.

We had 18 swimmers regristered to swim on the day in what was a very competitive event. They all achieved many personal bests which in itself is a huge feat. Many congragulations to all,  especially to Jessie Langridge who won Gold and silver medals for 100m Breast stroke and 200m Freestyle, to Dylan Rooney who also won gold and silver for 100m Butterfly and 100m backstoke and to Ethan Geoghan who won a Bronze medal for 100 butterfly.

We can now start to focus on our own club gala which will be held on Saturday February 16th.
