The National Arena League is the most competitive and prestigious League that we swim in, and for the past few years we have been in the London Division One league.
The first round of the new season was held on 14 October at our home pool, Glassmill, and the Saxon Crown team showed a great display, securing a great 2nd place with 244 points!
One highlight is that no Saxon Crown swimmer was disqualified, a feat rarely seen in such events.
Overall we got nine 1st places, six 2nd places and three 3rd places.
The next round will be at Luton on 11 November and we will be aiming to do well enough to secure a place in the top-half gala for December.
The final results were:
Dunmow Atlantis 262 points
Saxon Crown 244 points
Brompton 237 points
Borough of Harrow A 235 points
Anaconda 226 points
Team Luton 212 points
Haringey Aquatics 199 points
Harpenden 175 points
Well done to all swimmers and thanks to all the volunteers who made the night possible, as well as to friends and parents who came to cheer the team on and create a great atmosphere.
From the committee and coaching team.
