Blandford Flyers Swimming Club battled for another win in the fourth and final round of the Jurassic League at Bridport Leisure Centre.
This third victory gave the Flyers a four-point lead in the table to secure the Jurassic League title for the first time in the club’s history.
The competition was fierce and Frome led from the start very closely followed by Blandford, Bridport and Weymouth.
The Flyers’ persistence and resolve paid off in the last five races where they took the lead and finished five points in front on the night.
It was an outstanding performance from everyone in the squad, many having to swim up an age group or two or swim events outside of their comfort zone.
The team spirit throughout the competition was commendable with the encouragement and support provided to other swimmers playing a major part in this success.
Head coach Jon Creffield said: “The club is very proud of every one of our swimmers and hope they are also proud of their achievements – they deserve all the praise they are getting.”
The club gave thanks to Bridport Barracudas, Frome, Heron, Weymouth and Wincanton for making it such a great competition, Mark Hoskins for organising the event and all the officials, coaches and volunteers for their time and expertise.
