Saturday saw the 2nd round of the Essex Mini League which gives us a chance to expand the number of swimmers we have competing for Halstead swimming club. I n our first season back after several years we have had a promising start having notched up two 3rd place positions. Yesterday there were some tremendous swimming from the first timers representing the club and therefore special mention to Chloe J, Isabelle,Beau and Lacey Mae. They will have gained great experience on the night and will only improve with the work rate and keenness they are showing in training. The Mini League is a competition that has upper limits on time, meaning anyone going faster than that time given are automatically disqualified, strange i know but the intention is to give all clubs a chance rather than swim your number 1 swimmer all the time. The other benefit from my point of view is that you will often find swimmers coming through that had not been identified previously. That was the case last night. Well done to all that swam and coming 3rd behind Chelmsford and Harlow, both of which are a top 4 county club, was no mean feat.
