Arena league 2016
We have won the league!
Our team went into yesterday's final knowing a professional performance would present us with our first Arena League title in the club's 25 year history.
We knew we went into the final with a 39 point lead due to the hard work and success in the first 2 galas. The swimmers showed no signs of complacency and extended this to a final victory of 62 points over our nearest rival, Whitchurch Wasps.
It was fitting that there were no stand out performances, in fact the team shone as a whole as we dominated the majority of the races.
This achievement is a massive reward to all of the swimmers, coaches and volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the past 12 months. As a head coach, picking a team is not an easy job. My aims are to always pick a team that is competitive and as strong as possible. I have had the luxury of rotating the Arena team this season due to the immense strength and depth throughout the club.
1st Altrincham (466 points)
2nd Whitchurch Wasps (404 points)
3rd Ellesmere Port (368 points)
4th Nantwich Seals (273 points)
5th Sandbach Sharks (247 points)

I want to say a massive well done to every swimmer who has competed for the club this season. The leagues all start again in the new year, so if you want a chance to make it on to one of the teams, you need to train hard and enter pointscores and you'll be in with a chance!
Finally, below is the team from last night's gala, dressed up in their Christmas costumes.
Thank you for all the hard work and support this season! Have a wonderful Christmas and I'll look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
