Point Score Results Season 2016/17

A fantastic season of point score racing resulted in one of the Webb’s winning again this season, the other just missing out on defending his title.

Congratulations to Eva for winning this year with 147 points, just pipping Ana by two points and Eleanor just six points further back.

The boys event was just as tight, with Reuben just taking Jack’s title, again by two points and Alex three points further back.

A superb season of racing.  Well done to our winners.

Inter-Association Team Gala

We had two swimmers representing Bolton & Manchester Swimming Association at the recent Inter Association team gala.  We should be rightly proud of both swimmers, particularly when we receive the comment below from one of the officials of the association:

“Chiara and Reuben did a wonderful job of representing Bolton and Manchester at today’s IA Meet and thereby also representing Stretford.

Please thank them both for getting a bucket load of points between the two of them.”

The team finished second behind Liverpool & District and full results are on the M&D website:

M&D Team Gala 11th June

Whilst the overall result was a disappointment, finishing fourth, we were up against all three of our excellent Trafford Borough opponents for the first time in M&D this season.

We’ve beaten them before earlier this season in this gala and racing is so close between all the four teams, it could quite easily be a different result if we raced next week.  Nevertheless, excellent times again from both established and new members of the team, the details of which are found in the link below.
