RASCALS swimmers had a busy night on Saturday 30th January, with two galas taking place at the same time.
The senior swimmers were at Alfreton Leisure Centre in the second round of the new Derbyshire swimming league, the Derwent League, finishing in 4th place. Derby Phoenix won convincingly, with Etwall in second place and Rykneld third.
There were wins on the night for Liam Dawson, Jacob Whittle and Alice Richards, and also for the boys 12-year-old medley relay team. There were many personal best times: Noah Tannahill, Liam Dawson, Anna Booth, Isaac Caddy, Jacob Whittle, Morgan Buxton, Rebecca Pollicott, Gracie Dawes, Joshua Wheeler, Harry Wyld, George Atkin, Alice Richards, Lizzy Howe, Andy Parr, Adam Barrett and Isabel Thompson.
It was great to see coach Chris Wilgoose back poolside to coach the RASCALS team.
Meanwhile a novice team competed at the Arc in Matlock, also finishing in 4th place on the night. This was the first taste of competition for many of our younger swimmers, who did themselves and Head Coach Glenn Fisher proud.
Personal best times were set by: Travis Dawes, Harrison Gregory, Daniel Towle, Joe Cartwright, Georgia Caddy, Emily Lyons, Mimi Fisher, Archie Statham, Thomas Eason, Daisy Stone, Ruby Smith, Barney Render, Elliot Lawrence, Scarlett Sharpe, Scarlett Swift, Lily Parkin and Isla Berkin.
Well done to everyone who took part.

Current child protection legislation demands that anyone wishing to use photographic equipment – including mobile phones – must obtain permission from the leisure centre.
Anyone failing to obtain permission will be asked to leave and may be reported to the leisure centre and/or the police. Previous actions of this nature have resulted in prosecution.
R.A.S.C.A.L.S. have no wish to be kill-joys but we have to respect the law and also the leisure centres' own rules. Most importantly of all, we must put the safety and comfort of all the children first.
