2023 Arena League Round 1 - 14th October 2023

Well done to all our swimmers who took part in Round 1 of the National Arena League at Plymouth Life Centre on Saturday 14th Oct!  Newton Abbot swam in Lane 3 against 7 other other teams from Devon and Cornwall. It was a hugely noise and exciting atmosphere and there was great team spirit amongst all the teams taking part. The most exciting race of the day was the final race, the 8 x 50m Cannon Relay (1 boy, 1 girl from each age group)!  Head Coach Garry's tactic was the swim fastest first, which goes against what most teams do.  This meant we led the race for 7 of the 8 legs, with our team going crazy in their support.  It meant that Ewan was going to be racing against the 7 fastest swimmers of the other teams, but he did an excellent job and swam a huge PB!  

Well done and a huge thank you to Team Managers, Coaches and Officials who helped out.
