Good news arrived for the club late last night. Firstly Joe McCarthy recieved notification that he has been approved for certification as a National Level Gala Referee. Congrats Joe.
This morning saw Aoife swim her favourite event the 200 Free. A strong lead out 100 of 1:03.1 saw her in the mix with some of the best in the country. A good second 100 in 1: 08:8 left Aoife with a new Personal Best of 2:11.99. This was only the start of the good news.
Aoife is now in the ‘B’ final for the 200 free. Askeaton Swimming Club have a finalist in an Irish Open National Final, something which has not been achieved since the 1980’s and never since the club returned to competitive swimming in more recent times.
Warm up for this evenings session is at 3:15 and we will try and get an update before we get back on the road.
