Saturday 7th July 2018, Hemel Hempstead
I have been forwarded the final results from the R3 Peanuts gala. Hertford have been confirmed as placed first on the night which is a fantastic achievement and places us 7th overall in Division 1. Not bad for a team that was only promoted back to the top flight last season.
Well done to all of our super young athletes. On the night 25 of the 49 events were the fastest for this campaign. Hertford recorded 11 1st places, 11 2nd places and 10 3rd places. In addition to this 13 individual PBs and 19 best relay splits were swum.
I rarely single out any individual swimmers but on this occasion I have two young girls that between them for one reason or another had 19 swims so a special thank you to Isla Cavill and Laura Malagoli. Not once did either of these talented athletes grumble or complain so quite rightly Teddy is being shared for the summer by them.
Well done again to you all.
