Hillingdon B Team Make an Impression in Round 2 of the Diddy League

on 15 July 2015
Saturday 4th July was another busy day in the HSC Calendar. Not only were some of the older swimmers swimming for Hillingdon in the London Youth games, but over 60 of the younger swimmers were representing the Club in the second Round of the Diddy. And a handful of swimmers swam in both Events, hotfooting it from Crystal Palace pool on to their next pool for their next Event.
This time it was the A Team's turn to travel to Staines, where yet again they stormed to a victory of 223 points, beating close rivals Ealing into second place on 205 points. Well done to the A Team! The B Team travelled further afield to Witney in deepest Oxfordshire. But the journey was well worthwhile as Head Coach Lesley Westendorp writes:

 '' Four points shy of the leaders Wycombe, was an outstanding result for Hillingdon's B Team, against the A Teams of this very competitive League. A few unfortunate DQ's deprived them of an outright win, but second place was an amazing achievement.
The importance of having a strong balanced Team in all ages is evident when with only three 1st places - Oliver Latham (BR), Niamh Barber (FC) and the 12 yr Boys Medley Relay, the Team still pulled in the points. Eleven 2nd places including individual placings from 9 yr Madison Colman (BR) and Amolika Jadhav (BC), 10 yr Gabriella Neal (Fly and BC) and Oliver Castell (BR), 12 yr Cara O'Toole (BC) and Niamh Barber (BR) plus four Relay Teams finishing 2nd, kept the points rolling in.
Along with thirteen 3rd places this was enough to amass 182 points.

The final results were:

Wycombe                        186
Hillingdon B                    182
Borough of Harrow        177
Maxwell                           159
Bicester Blue Fins           158
Witney                              145

Well done to both Teams for great swimming and many thanks again to all the parent helpers on poolside - it would not be possible to enter Teams in these Events without your help. Thankyou.

The next Round of the Diddy is on September 12th. For more information about this and who we are swimming against in the next Round go to Team Meets page or click here
