Another Win For Aquasprint Team

The Sliabh Beagh Aquasprint team swam against  Newry and Mourne last Saturday at Coral Leisure in the next round of the Forest Feast Aquasprint Competition. This was a good natured gala with some hard fought races on both sides.  Our young team have gone from strength to strength over the season and in the end gained a comfortable victory against Newry and Mourne. As always the co-ordinators would like to thank everyone who helped out on the night  especially some of our senior and intermediate swimmers who turned up to help, and encouraged our young swimmers. Well done everyone. The next gala will be against Ballymena on 24th May.
