Dunstable - Round Three 2014

Dunstable Swimming Club got their final leg of the National Arena League off to a fantastic start with a third place position in their West Midlands Three East Gala. Held at the Queens Leisure Centre in Derby on 13 December and hosted by the Etwall Eagles Swimming Club.

Competing against Rykneld, Braunstone B, Etwall Eagles and Dronfield Dolphins, DSC were against some tough competition. It is fantastic to be able to report on 2 1st place positions, 13 2nd place positions and 10 3rd place positions for the DSC swimmers.  The whole DSC squad worked really hard all night and the dividends really paid off with them earning 3rd place.  The final placings mean that overall, Dunstable came in 11th place in their league.

The atmosphere pool side was electric and certainly the support as always from DSC parents was lively!

 Head Coach Tim Hutton says

“DSC swimmers did the town proud on Saturday with some outstanding swims with several swimmers out with illness. I look forward on us building on this seasons performance next year with more victories. The club is going from strength to strength and with the club using Houghton Regis Leisure Centre and Dunstable Leisure Centre from the new year the possibilities are endless”.

Thank you to all DSC swimmers that competed and did their best, for what was a high profile gala.  Thank you also to the organisers and supporters that made this event so organised but above all tremendously exciting.

DSC looks forward to next year's National League Galas, where we aim to have even greater success!
