A few photos from the 10k Sponsored Swim that took place at Chesham Open Air Pool on Saturday 13th September can be found in the gallery.
A huge well done for the MKJL Team!!!
On Saturday we (31 swimmers, 4 coaches and 8 parents) travelled to Wellingborough to compete in the final round of the 2014 Milton Keynes Junior League. Well done Emma for racing Hugo up to join us!
In the middle gala we faced some strong competition up against Windsor, High Wycombe, Witney, Wellingborough and Maxwell and we managed to secure 3rd place just behind High Wycombe and Windsor.
After the first 12 events we were in 3rd place, after half way we were 2nd place only 5 points away from Windsor, but in the final 9 relays despite our brilliant swims we had two disqualifications (starting too early in the relay) when we lost 8 points. The final scores were:
Our winners were:
Jack Eden - 11 yr old 50m backstroke
Charley Huggett - 12 yr old 50m butterfly
Sadie Lucas - 10 yr 50m backstroke
Georgina Vane - 11 yr butterfly
Abbie Henderson - 9 yr old 25m backstroke
Harry Gibbs - 9 yr 25m backstroke
Zebina George - 12 yr 50m breaststroke
Our team created a brilliant atmosphere, they were loud, cheered and screamed for every swim, face painting was going on throughout the whole gala by Captain Zoe.
On the way home we were delayed due to an unfortunate accident that our bus was involved in. All the swimmers were amazing, well-behaved (interested in what was going on) and patiently waited for the replacement coach which brought us back to Chalfont Leisure Centre around 11.30pm.
Thanks to everyone involved, Andrew J. for judging and Lynette Z. for timekeeping on debut. We have secured mid-table in Division 1 for this year and we will work hard to advance again in 2015. Thanks kids, you did everyone proud.

There are a number of photos from the Otters Picnic and Rounders Day in the Gallery in the members area.
