Looking Good For Team Atlantis

10th June 2017

Team Atlantis prepare the for final round of the Sussex league with another comprehensive home win.
 
Once again both Atlantis A and B teams competed in the Sussex league on Saturday evening with Atlantis A's hosting Hailsham and Littlehampton at Pavillions and the B squad travelling to Eastbourne. 
 
The A team got off to an unaccustomed slow start, but this might have been just the motivation the swimmers needed to focus on the task in hand which was another win to keep their 100 percent win record. The 57 races were closely contested with Atlantis and Hailsham neck and neck at the halfway stage. Some strong words of encouragement from the coaches and vocal support from the swimmers and crowd saw Atlantis step up another gear and eventually win the event with a score of 407 points 50 clear of second place. 
 
The B team had a tough evening of competition, but the spirit and determination of the swimmers delighted coach Becky Harrison and they eventually secured second place on the night. 
 
The final evening of the Sussex swimming league takes place on June 24th. The A team travel to Burgess Hill where they face Mid Sussex Marlins and local rivals Crawley where the winners will be crowned Sussex Champions. The B team play hosts at Pavillions Horsham. Good luck to Team Atlantis.
