Website Updated 2nd April: Ridings League Premier, 1st and 2nd Division Results Added

A busy weekend of competition in all three divisions of the Ridings League:

Beverley hosted the 2nd gala in the Premier Division with Scarborough once again proving the strongest. Two records were again broken, Emily Harrison(SCAE) set another record in the 14&under Girls 50m Free and Amy Feldgate(BEBE) took the Open Girls 50m Fly below 30 seconds for the first time.

Whitby hosted the 2nd gala in the 1st Division and all four teams contributed to yet another closely contested gala with the lead once again changing throughout the events and with just the Freestyle relays to go only 3 points separated Ryedale, Bridlington and Kingfishers. Final result – RYEE 126pts, KINE 121pts, BRDE 118pts and WHTE 99pts.

South Hunsley were the hosts for the opening gala of the 2nd Division. The gala saw quite a few disqualifications and was dominated by Pocklington who scored a massive 170pts.

Clubs are reminded that they should collect the timekeepers, judges and referee sheets at the end of the gala so that any queries regarding the results can be addressed.

At the recent AGM concern was raised about the consistency of judging in relation to backstroke turns. Please refer to the Backstroke rules page, which includes a clarification section as well.

Clubs are reminded that the next meeting is Tuesday 29th April at the Forest and Vale Hotel, Pickering.
