Rykneld’s Team Relay 2016 – ESC Highlights


Rykneld’s David Hunt Memorial Gala Team Relay took place on Saturday 5th March 2016 at Rykneld Swimming Club’s training facilities at Sharley Park Leisure Centre.

Highlights from Coach Team Member – John Casey

A fantastic performance by all swimmers who represented Eckington Swimming Club extremely well!

The clubs involved at the team relay event were Ripley Rascals, Derby Phoenix, Rykneld and Eckington Swimming Club.  The final positions were:

  • 1st place: Ripley Rascals
  • 2nd place: Eckington Swimming Club with 105 points
  • 3rd place: Derby Phoenix
  • 4th place: Rykneld

This is a massive improvement for all our swimmers across all groups, particularly since a year ago in 2015 we finished 5th place out of 5 attending teams with 66 points.

A big thanks also to Richard Newbould, Jonathan Pickard and Peter Hardy who helped officiate, and a big thanks to Karen Barker for Team managing.
