Arena R2 B Team Report

Mon 16 November 2015 at 11:11am

The 2nd round for our B team was over the bridge in Newport.
With great facilities and a quick pool, but unfortunately on the day a few DQ's cost us a first place finish.
A disputed disqualification on a relay take over, which we had won the race by a good 10 metres. I was stood directly behind the blocks and could clearly see the take overs and as I explained to the referee you can start to move from the blocks as long as your feet are still in contact with the block but to no avail. With only 7 points between 1st place Tornadoes of Dorset, 2nd Dawlish and us finally finishing in 3rd place position t was a very close fought gala.
An extremely harsh decision as our swimmers really showed a fantastic team spirit as it came down to the wire.
I have to mention Lucy watts who showed what it is to be a captain encouraging all especially with our younger swimmers.
Well done to everyone who took part some great racing.
Thank you to our officials for there support, Lou foster and Ashley Barnett pool side and just another day for me to be so proud of our great team  SOUNDWELL SC.
