A young squad of 20 Hertsmere Flyers swimmers went to Hitchin on Saturday night to compete in round 1 of the Peanuts League. With a large number of the swimmers experiencing the Peanuts League for the first time the gala was going to be a challenge. With great effort from the whole squad, especially Emily Connolly who only stepped in to race during the warm up, the swimmers achieved 25 Personal Best times and a 4th place finish.

Well done to Tolu Elesin who knocked 7.89 seconds off his time for 50M Freestyle.

Also well done to the following swimmers who set their first official times: Tilly Golding (25M Freestyle), Emily Connolly (25M Backstroke), Ben Mitchell (25M Freestyle, 25M Backstroke, 25M Breaststroke), Freya Bigland (25M Butterfly),  James Thornley (25M Butterfly), Oscar Connolly (25M Freestyle) and Natasha Tan (25M Butterfly).

Good swimming team. Keep training hard – round 2 is in a few weeks!
