County Relay Gala it UEA Sportspark

Diss Otters finished in an excellent fourth place at Saturdays County Relay Gala at the UEA Sportspark.  City of Norwich, West Norfolk and Norwich Swan finished first, second and third respectively and despite having nowhere near the strength in depth of the counties big three clubs Diss finished ahead of the rest of the field.  The evenings highlights for the Otters were the two race victories for Grace Greenhalf, Sophia Pickering, Rosie Munnings and Lily-Anne Jones in the 9/10 year old girls freestyle (2 mins 23.29 secs) and medley (2 mins 39.62 secs) races.

Following on from the girls double gold success were the 13/14 years boys team of Max Ashken, Matthew Munnings, Cameron Day and Isaac Bachu who won double bronze in their two events.  Whether it was fighting out first place or battling for seventh and eighth all of the Otters teams performed with credit throughout the evening, and as many swimmers were swimming up in older age groups to finish fourth overall was a superb result for the club.
