M11 Junior League Round 2 - Success

After a fantastic result in Round 1, the Clubs Junior Team traveled to Barnet for Round 2 of the M11 Junior League.

Hillingdon came back with another Round win, cementing the Club firmly at the top of the league and putting us in a great position to be win the league and be promoted to Division 1 in Round 3.

A big well done as the team had swimmers missing with a number of them racing at London AG Champs. A lot of younger swimmers raced up an age group, sometimes 2 and we still came away with the win! Another big thank you and well done for the swimmers who were at London Age Champs Sunday morning, and raced over from Crystal Palace to Barnet to get to the meet.

Thanks to Luke Spain and Sue Gleeson who organised the team.

Round 2 Results:

Hillingdon SC 238
Hackney 214
Broomfield 159
Halstead 144
Camden B 128
Rochford 121

There were over 50pbs in just 1 day of swimming, and 2 very proud coaches;

Oliver Stone 12, also swam brilliantly, but couldn't quite break the 6min target with 6:01 (The coaches are confident he'll smash it in the the club clamps in the coming weeks!).
