Summer London League
Well done to the Penguin Under 13s who came 3rd overall in the Summer London League: a fantastic result.
The final tournament was at Habs on Sunday 17th September.
Results were :
Penguin 5 Beckenham 6
Penguin 4 Croydon 3
Penguin 2 Watford 5
The team were particularly chuffed to beat Croydon, who came 2nd overall. This was despite the team being understrength as Georgia, Sean, Dan and Melissa were all unable to attend.
The team: Abelardo Cardenas, Nikola Christov, Luke Wang, Dan Usher, Audrey Tala, Antonio Bardella, Melissa Pala, Lewis Emerton and Jensen Jolly.
London Swimming Development Tournament
An Under 15 development tournament was held on 24th September organised by Chris Martin at Croydon Whitgift on behalf of London Swimming. This was for teams not yet competing in the London League.
We entered a team and were delighted to win every match and be awarded gold medals.
We are very grateful to the organisers for a rare opportunity to compete at this level. It has helped us enormously in our preparation to enter a new Under 14 team in the Winter London League.
Results were :
Penguin 7 Haringey 2
Penguin 5 Croydon B 3
Penguin 10 Barnet 2
The team were : Sarah Watts, Amaan-Raj Bhara, Kuis Aranda, Charlie Richardson, Will Hames, Dan Murphy, Joseph Rodgers, Ben Mason, Matthew Emerton, Georgia Mouratidi, Abelardo Cardenas, Audrey Tala & Antonio Bardella.
A big thank you to Mike Emerton for Managing the teams and Claudio for coaching.
