Leaves are falling… Autumn is calling
Regardless of the nights getting darker and the weather turning cooler, the Bluefin swim team lit up and sent temperatures soaring, in an outstanding display of swimming skills in Leisureland on Saturday 29th September.
Our 27 amazing athletes competed in a total of 67 events where they attained an awesome 64 PB’s. These super swimmers were awarded 21 medals for their tremendous performances, which included 6 gold, 9 silver and 6 bronze medals.
Although the Aurora Borealis was not visible over the night sky in Salthill on Saturday night, our exceptional water wizards created their own natural phenomena. An incredible 9 A-times were conjured up by Isolde, John, Kieran, Rian, Sara and Sarah. Your hard work and dedication is evident in all you’ve accomplished.
Congratulations to Ciara, Isabelle and Isabelle who competed at their first ever gala. Looking forward to the girls joining the team for many more galas to come.
Thank you to Shark Swim Club for organising our first development meet gala of the new term. Well done on a very well coordinated, enjoyable event. To the gracious time keeping volunteers who participated in assisting on the night, it is very much appreciated.
Parents, family and friends we are always grateful to the love, dedication and commitment you show your marvellous swimmers. A special word of thanks to our poolside groupies on the night, Ailbhe and Robyn. Birthday wishes to Hugh and Lillian… hope they enjoyed celebrating their birthdays with the club.
Team managers, Christine and Ger
