Sports Centre and Derby & Notts Leagues

A couple of brief reports:

 

The Sports Centre league team swam very well in the gala of 22nd March with lots of PBs to record a creditable second, again against strong opposition.

 

As usual, we had two teams out in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire league on 5th April. Despite the absence of no less than 16 potential team members, both A and B gave a superb account of themselves, the A team winning their gala and the B team coming third to two of the strongest (A) teams in the league. The next round is on 24th May.
