And another victory for Atlantis!

23rd June 2013

On Saturday 22nd June,  East Grinstead held the John Herbert Memorial Trophy gala at The Pavillions in the Park . Teams from Marlins, Beacon, East Grinstead and Atlantis took part.

It was a very friendly gala where the age groups were 8&9 year olds, 10 , 11&12 year olds and 13 year olds. This gave us an opportunity to blood several swimmers in their first gala ..Luka Mchardy , Amber Somers , Isobel Clitheroe as well as older swimmers only swimming in their second gala. Each club had two lanes so could swim two swimmers or two relay teams per event . It was a very close thing as Beacon had a strong team with the final event being the squadron relay with the first three teams finishing with 0.02 seconds between them.

In the end, however, and continuing Atlantis winning streak, club captains for the night Callum Easton and Lucy Lee picked up the trophy to put in our new cabinet in the reception area of The Pavillions.
