‘Further to the provisional results that were circulated on 26 March I can confirm that Hertford have retained their position in Division One for a further season. A recording error on the night has been corrected and we finished the evening level with Costa B on gala points but ahead of them in third place on count back of the number of 1st places on the night. This placed us in 10th position. It goes to show that every point is precious. Many thanks to all of the swimmers for their efforts in R3 and throughout this year’s competition.’
Our swimmers put in a fantastic display... the best this campaign and the final result was in balance until the last event. I cannot confirm the overall league position until the results have been verified by HSL.
On the night 37 of the swims were the best of the three rounds and included 8 1st places, 13 2nd places and 7 3rd places. 16 individual PBs were recorded and a further 23 best relay splits.
Teddy to William Charles for 2 PBs in the 100 Free and Fly and 3 best relay splits in possibly his last representative swim for Hertford before he departs for university in the autumn. Well done Will.
Thanks to all that competed so well, your effort is really appreciated, especially those that only get the one swim (it can make all the difference), all of the officials and poolside help and a special thanks to Rachel for all her efforts.
As soon as we receive confirmation of the final league placings we will let you all know.
