Club Notes: 26 February 2015

Aquasprint Team Swim Against Cookstown

Our Sliabh Beagh Aquasprint team were in action at home last Saturday when they competed against Cookstown.

The competition was very close and with 40 different races it was a very exciting competition. Our swimmers performed extremely well but were narrowly defeated in the end by 205 to 195 points. Well done to all the children who took part and swam so well.

Thanks to Forest Feast who, again this year, are sponsoring the Aquasprint competition.  Thanks to our coaches Dana and Linda, the timekeepers, touch judges, scoring judge, team leaders who all helped run a smooth gala.  Thanks too to all parents and grandparents who donated cakes, buns etc towards a well-deserved reception after the gala.

On behalf of the swimmers, coaches and parents Sliabh Beagh would like to thank Cookstown swimming club and wish them well in the rest of the competition.

Our next Aquasprint Gala will take place in Lurgan on Saturday 14th March 2015.  Team sheet is now on the notice board, please sign by this Sunday (1st March) if able to attend.

Sliabh Beagh Swimmers Succeed at NAC Charity Gala.

On 15th February last 12 Sliabh Beagh swimmers travelled to the Nac to compete in the NAC Charity gala. This gala attracted swimmers from all across Leinster and also some like ourselves from Ulster and the other provinces. As always in the NAC the competition was steep, however the purpose for most of our swimmers was to achieve personal bests which they did.  Some also brought home medals. Well done to everyone who competed. The list of swimmers and events are as follows.

Katie Bowden: 50, 100 and 200 freestyle, 100 fly.  Niamh Lavelle: 200IM and 100 fly. Emma Mc Elvaney: 200 freestyle, 100 breast and 100 backstroke.  Alannah Mc Gahon: 200 free and 100 back.  Claragh mc Gahon: 200 free, 100 back and 100 breast. Shauna Mc Gahon: 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back.  Ellen Mc Geough: 200 free and 100 breast.  Sheenagh Mc Kenna: 50, 100, 200 freestyle, 50 back and 100 back.  Cliona Sheridan: 200 free, 50 breast, 50 back.  Hanna Skeath: 100 free and 100 fly.  James Campbell: 100 free, 200IM, 100 Fly.  Cillian Mc Gahon: 200 free, 100 breast, 100 back.
