Memorial Gala

Memorial Gala

On Saturday 13th January 2018 the City of Newport Swimming club took a team to Horfield Leisure centre Bristol to compete in the Derek and Val Ross memorial Gala. It was the first meet of the new year for most of the swimmers, and a good test of fitness after Christmas. Newport got off to a good start, holding a narrow lead of 1 point after 10 events, by 30 events Newport still held a 1 point advantage. There were some really good swims, even with some swimmers swimming up an age group and not necessarily in their main event. The final scores were;

8th           Monnow                             89 Points

7th           Burnham on Sea               195 Points

6th           Western Super Mare      220 Points

5th           Gloucester                          233 Points

4th           City of Cardiff                    237 Points

3rd           Soundwell                           239 Points

2nd          Newport                              294 Points           (Top Visiting team)

1st           Severn Side Tritons          308 Points          


Thank you to all the Officials and Volunteers who gave up their time to make this event possible, and well done to all the swimmers involved.
