Saturday 7th January, The Venue Borehamwood
A very tough night for us at The Venue competing in Division 1 of Major League against the two strongest clubs in the County – Hatfield and CoSta. Last month in Arena R3 we competed against Tring and ran out comfortable gala winners and put over 60 points on Tring. However, for Major League Tring can call upon swimmers from other Buckinghamshire clubs and this really strengthened their squad of swimmers to select from. The 4th, 5th and 6th places were continually changing throughout the gala and at one stage Hertford had opened a small gap and were placed 4th. At the end of the evening Hoddesdon had marginally pulled away and finished in 4th place just three points ahead of us and Tring. On count back Hertford finished in 5th place by virtue of just one more 1st place finish than Tring.
On the night there two first place finishes and eight second places together with 9 individual PBs and 10 best relay splits.
Just three points behind Hoddesdon. We had two DQs to Hoddesdon’s one no swimmer....probably the difference!!
