Scott Ormsby Inter-club June 2019

Scott Ormsby 1st June 2019

An excellent battle between Newton Abbot and our nearest rivals Paignton in the open air pool at Kingsteignton in bright sunshine! The two clubs were neck and neck for most of the gala, with Paignton edging in front and Newton closing the gap, but not quite enough by the end. Oddicombe, Brixham and Torquay Leander filled the other 3 lanes in the pool and there was a great atmosphere with spectators enjoying the sunshine and the spectacle! Final positions:

1st - Paignton                 213
2nd - Newton Abbot       204
3rd  - Torquay Leander  109
4th - Brixham                  104
5th - Oddicombe               32
