L-R Abbie Legg, 1st in girls 11 years, Marie Faulkner, 2nd in girls 8 years, Caitlin Legg, 10th in girls 9 years. (not in photo) Alyssa Norris, 4th in girls 10 years.

All CCSS swimmers who took part in the SEW DEvelopment meet all performed fantastic, with a host of PB’s and confident swims. For some swimmers, it was their first competition and all gave 100% jdm_pentathlon. Please make a note of your times for use in future meets.

Da iawn pawb.
