National Arena League – Rd 3 2017!
Dunstable Swimming Club got the 3rd leg of the National Arena League 2017 off to a fantastic start with a great 5th place position in their West Midlands Division 2 gala following promotion in 2016. Held in Tamworth Staffordshire on 9th December 2017, DSC swimmers were on good form despite another long journey on a coach.
Competing against Leicester Sharks, Chew, Derby Phoenix SC, Bicester Blue Fins and Boldmere B, 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 did not disappoint!
The points at the end of this 3rd and final round gala were as follows;
1st place – Chew – 200
2nd place – Derby Phoenix – 199
3rd place – Boldmere B – 193
4th place – Bicester Blue Fins – 170
5th place – Dunstable – 165
6th place – Leicester Sharks – 114
Overall Dunstable achieved a 5th place position on the night, achieving 8 1st place positions, 6 2nd place positions and 12 3rd place. Final overall positions are yet to be finalised in terms of points in the league.
DSC also celebrated some excellent new PB’s. Swimmers of the gala went to Maisie Humphrey and Michael Judd who 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 next year in NASL 2018.
