Mixed return at Longford A Grade meet!
After the performance highs by the GSC team at the Connacht short course (29/30th October), the Longford A grade meet (20th November) proved to be a much tougher performance proposition for the club’s travelling swimmers.
With Longford hosting the 100 Butterfly,100 Freestyle, 100 IM & 400IM, GSC podium finishes very much thin on the ground at this meet, with Aleksandr McAleer & Liam Kilkenny delivering bronze medals & PB’s in the U11 & U15 100 Butterfly events respectively.
Top GSC PB performances at the meet were achieved by Ralf Bodamer, Sarah Bradley, Rory Lally, Ben Naughton, Eidhne Kennedy, Naoise O’Donnell, Oliwia Roclawska & Lauren Sharkey.
GSC would to extend sincerely thanks to Team Managers Michelle & Ann Marie for their superb support work with the team on the day & massive thanks also to Coach Stuart for his excellent coaching direction to the swimmers during a very tough day of competing in the pool for club.
The next competitions up for GSC swimmers will be the Irish SC held in Lisburn (2-4th December), while the rest will hopefully be getting their heads down & working hard until GSC’S Cranny Swim Festival held on Sunday 18th December.
