PTL Squad Win at Ballymoney!
The PTL team got their season off to a great start last night at the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre defeating Ballymoney 607 points to 521 in what was a friendly but competitive gala. As always, the opening medley relays provided an opportunity for both teams to size up the opposition and with Portadown completing a ‘clean sweep’ in all age groups early signs were encouraging. Despite several excellent individual swims from the home team Portadown were always too strong, once ahead they never looked like they could be caught. The team looked good throughout all age groups as both the boys and girls continued to pick up points in the individual events. The gala finished with the freestyle relays where Portadown lost only one race. A big thanks to all who took part including several swimmers who were competing at this level for the first time. Thanks is also due to hosts Ballymoney for their hospitality after the event. The next fixture sees the team back on board the coach for a second away trip to Limavady. In the meantime coaches will have the opportunity to study the results in more detail and let’s see who produced a new PB. All sessions run as normal this week.
