Head Coach Report - Northern Junior Open: What a great day at the Northern Open. The swimmers were very well behaved and all excited for the day ahead. The PBs started coming in and kept coming. At the end of a long day a fantastic 85 PBs were achieved. But it did not stop there. Grace Phillips achieved 2nd PBs in 2 of her 3 finals. Eoin Byrne was in 4 finals getting 3rd for his freestyle and Solomon Rose got into the Breaststroke final. I hope you are all very proud of yourself - you all did brilliantly. Thank you to the team of team managers that helped me on the day. Visit the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists.
