Dunstable Round Two 2016


Dunstable Swimming Club got the 2nd leg of the National Arena League 2016 off to a fantastic start with a magnificent 2nd place position in their West Midlands Three East Gala.  Held at the Daventry Leisure Centre on 12th November 2016, DSC swimmers were on fantastic form throughout the gala.
Competing against Worksop Dolphins, Flitwick Dolphins, Daventry Dolphins (hosts), Rykneld and Dronfield Dolphins, DSC were against some very tough competition.  DSC did not disappoint, and the whole squad worked really hard all night with the relays in particular being tremendously exciting to spectate.

The atmosphere poolside was very much alive, and certainly the support from DSC parents did not disappoint!

The points at the end of this 2nd round gala were as follows;

1st place – Flitwick Dolphins – 200
2nd place – Dunstable – 198
3rd place – Rykneld – 174
4th place – Daventry Dolphins – 169
4th place joint – Worksop Dolphins – 169
6th place – Dronfield Dolphins – 138

DSC gained 9 1st places, 12 2nd places and 10 3rd places over the duration of the gala.

DSC also celebrated some excellent new PB’s.  Swimmers of the gala went to Izzy Tuffnell and Emma Yule who both made outstanding contributions to the gala.

One short course club record was also broken on Saturday.  This was the for the boys 10 yrs 50m backstroke by Elliot Kefford in a time of 37.69 – Congratulations Elliot!

Thank you to all DSC swimmers that competed and did their best, for what is a high profile event.  Thank you also to the organisers and supporters that make this event so well organised with over 11,500 swimmers competing all across the country on the same night!

DSC would also like to give a huge thanks to the Woodside Clinic Dunstable, who very kindly sponsored the swimmers T-shirts.
