In the first galas of the new season, Sutton Swimming Club started as they mean to go on as their B team were crowned champions of the Sports Centre League’s Third Division.
Sutton B made it a clean sweep of four victories from four league galas and were duly promoted to Division Two. In the final gala, held at Hucknall Leisure Centre, they amassed a total of 176 points, fully 39 clear of runners-up Ilkeston, with Arnold third on 134.
Two of the squad’s most experienced swimmers, 17-year-old Sophie Bunker and 16-year-old Liam Marsh, received the champions award.
In Division One of the same league, a re-scheduled Third Round, held at Watermeadows in Mansfield, saw Sutton continue their fine run with a third successive win. With two rounds to go, they are now in a strong position to retain the title, delighting head coach Lee Bunker.
