New DASC Club Gala Event
On 5 April 2022 DASC held its annual 400m Club Gala. This year for the first time, as well as there being 400m Freestyle events, there were 400m IM events too.
Few of our swimmers have competed at 400m IM in a licenced gala, so this provided swimmers from Top and A1 squads with the opportunity to attempt it for the first time and in their home pool. It was great to see so many of them have a go at this tough event, and most of them did it after competing in the 400m Freestyle event too.
Standard times were set as baseline times for Club Gala records. On the night Lucy Oliver set a new record of 5:26.23 in the 11&12 years age group.
To mark the introduction of this new event four new trophies were given to the club to award to the winners. Head Coach, Lucy Proctor, awarded two for the Male and Female 12&Under winners, and The Teague Family awarded two trophies for the Male and Female 13&Over winners.
The inaugural winners were:
Male 12& Under Harry Whitfield
Female 12&Under Lucy Oliver
Male 13&Over Richard Murray
Female 13&Over Laura Burgess
