Coach Caroline Findlay writes: I am delighted and proud of the success of our team swimming in the final round of the Milton Keynes Junior League at Guildford. Although it was the last round of the 2017 Milton Keynes League, it was our swimmer’s first gala of the new season.
Our team were up against strong opposition from Guildford, Wycombe, Ealing, Oxford and Teddington and came 4th – what a great start for so many of our junior swimmers, who took 5 first and 6 second places! In the league overall we finished a fantastic fifth.
Thank you swimmers for representing us so well, showing that Leander is a serious competitive club and a strong force. I am sure you all had a great time. It is an honour to be picked to represent the Club in these League galas and it is rewarding to see your hard work paying off.
Thank you too to the parents that attended the gala, both officials and spectators, and to the coaches for their hard work coaching the swimmers.
Final scores: Guildford 257, Wycombe 175, Ealing 161, Leander 144, Teddington 143, Oxford 130
