Diss Otters Swimming Club hosts inaugural Springboard Development Gala at Diss Leisure Centre
Diss Otters Swimming Club hosted its inaugural Springboard Development Gala at Diss Leisure Centre earlier this month.
Sponsored by local company Dipple and Conway Opticians, it proved to be a highly successful event, which was designed for less experienced swimmers in the junior squads to give them the chance to get competitive races and times under their belts away from the bigger Open Galas that they will compete in over the coming months and years.
More than 60 swimmers competed throughout the meeting, with the clubs from Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft & Oulton Broad joining their Diss counterparts in the pool.
It proved to be an impressive outing for the hosting Otters, who out of a total of 146 individual swims saw a medal return of 29 golds, 31 silvers and 23 bronzes.
Diss Otters squad: David Cosgrove, Forbes Irvine, Toby Townsend, Henry Cripps, Jon Barber, Blossom Day, Faye Wilson, Ella Townsend, Heidi Noakes, Phoebe Tovell, Molly Wilson, Elizabeth Looker, Emma Neve, Freya Button, Molly Kershaw, Evan Tovell, Donald Perrin, Reuben Looker, Edward Hoy, Gabriel Thompson, Jacob Shadbolt, Kyla Dalliston, Amber Daly, Eleanor Godbold, Portia Bloomfield, Abi Chisman, Laurie Shearer, Ella Goodswen, Mya Sidwell, Tiggy Miller, Lucas Blair, Alex Jackson and Harrison Fall.
