National Arena League Rd 2 – 2018!
Dunstable Swimming Club had an absolutely sensational 2nd round of the National Arena League 2018 with a brilliant 2nd place position in their West Midlands Division 2 gala. Held in Redditch on 10th November 2018, DSC swimmers were on dazzling form holding 1st place position until the very end of the gala!
Competing against City of Coventry B, Cheltenham, Stratford Sharks, Halesowen and Coalville, DSC were against some very tough competition. DSC did not disappoint, and the whole squad worked really hard all night with the relays in particular being tremendously exciting to spectate.
The atmosphere poolside was very much alive, and certainly the support from DSC parents from the gallery was brilliant where the flag was flying and parents stood and watched.
The points at the end of this 2nd round gala were as follows;
1st place – Halesowen – 193
2nd place – Dunstable – 191
3rd place – Cheltenham – 183
4th place – Stratford Sharks – 176
5th place – Coalville – 150
6th place – City of Coventry B – 142
Overall Dunstable achieved a 2nd place position on the night but only by 2 points!, achieving 15 1st place positions, 10 2nd place positions and 5 3rd place. From the 24 teams competing in this division, DSC currently sit in 10th place which gives us a total of 9 league points.
DSC also celebrated some excellent new PB’s. Swimmers of the gala went to Michael Judd for his brilliant 200IM swim and William Hamm for his sensational 100m breaststroke. They both made outstanding contributions to the gala.
Thank you to all DSC swimmers that competed and did their best, for what is a high profile event. Thank you also to the organisers and supporters that make this event so well organised with over 10,000 swimmers competing all across the country on the same night!
DSC look forward to competing in round 3 on 8th December 2018 and very much hope that this time it’s a win!
