9Feb: Men Miss Out at Leeds

Despite winning heat 2 of the Junior/Senior Yorkshire champs mens freestyle team by a comfortable margin, our mens team (Kev, Dave Cuthbert, Michael Gartside, Alistair) just missed the medals; finishing 4th overall.

Earlier in the morning, Kevin Nicholas and Alistair Davies just missed out on final places (1st and 2nd reserve) in the sprint Breast. Kev also made the 50 Fly final, taking 6th place.

10Feb: More Yorkshire Finalists

Kev's form from day 1 continued in the 50 fc: 7th place. In a bizarre twist, former DARTES National Squad member, Sam Seddon (now Rotherham Metro), pulled out injured, allowing Alistair Davies (1st reserve) to join Kev in the final for 8th place.

The mens medley team (Andy Butterfield, Alistair, Kev, Dave) managed 6th, with Kev taking on the mighty James Hickman (City of Leeds) on the fly leg.

Congratulations to Leanne Stacey on her first ever top 8 Yorkshire finishes (8th in 50m & 200m Fc, 5th in 100m Fly).

17Feb: Sharks Bite their Nails

They were 2nd in their BML debut by just 3 points. Today's Pocklington League debut was a tie for 1st place. South Axholme Sharks have an exciting year ahead of them!

In their first BML1 clash of the year, Armthorpe and Adwick took 1st and 2nd. Today's second gala saw a repeat performance, but with the Kingfishers stretching their winning margin.

24Feb: Tough Battle in BML2

Despite putting up a strong fight, Edlington couldn't quite keep on terms with the leaders. Rossington seem to be missing the spark which made them title challengers last year.

24Feb: Spa Set to Dominate BML3

Spa are looking set for a quick return to division 2 after securing victory number 2
with exactly the same score as their first.
