Last weekend saw the launch of this year’s Junior League event, with Chester-le-Street going up against the big boys for the first time since their promotion last season to Division One.
But they definitely rose to the challenge, and finished in an impressive third place behind Middlesbrough, with an overall point score of 198!
An absolutely fantastic start to the competition.
All of our swimmers performed exceptionally well, both in and out the pool, with some great swims, and fantastic team spirit on display poolside.
It was great to see our newest team members settling in so quickly, and you would never know that for some it was their very first time competing!
But there’s still definitely more challenges ahead as we go up against some of the other big local clubs – but I’m sure they’ll do us proud once again in the next round at Darlington on 10 April 2016.
Further details and team lists will be published closer to the date.
But for now a HUGE WELL DONE to all our youngsters and we wish you all the best in the coming events.
