UBSC Cup Round 1 - Report

This gala was held at Easton Leisure Centre and was the 1st of three rounds of this series of galas. There are the same six teams in each of the rounds and the total points over the three rounds decide the final order of the teams. The final round is on Saturday 10th December at Easton.

This round was of a standard format and Bristol Henleaze was involved with two other galas on the same day which meant we fielded a team of 31 swimmers some of whom had never competed in a gala at this level for our Club before.

The age groups were 10/U, 12/U 14U and Open. Our swimmers were restricted to 2 individual swims in their own age group but they could swim up in higher age groups. The last event was special 8x25m freestyle relay. It was an 8 leg cannon with a boy and girl from each age group swimming.

We had 8 first places and 9 second places in this 53 event gala. There was a total of 18 PBs in the 36 individual events.

 In the individual 1st places were:-

Girls 10/U 25m Backstroke    Tilly Fraser

Girls 10/U 25m Freestyle    Alanna O’Reilly

I would like to thank all officials and helpers that made this gala run smoothly.

I hope all swimmers will make themselves available for the next round on

Saturday 12th November at Easton Leisure Centre doors open 6.00p.m. The age

groups for this next Gala will be 9/U, 11/U,13/U and Open. Bristol Henleaze will
