A great start to the Arena League, and everyone enjoyed the team spirit and chearing. It was very loud at certain times especially at the end when our Girls and Boys open team for fighting hard. The Boys Open x6 men relay came through to take first, our ears were ringing from the noise. Amazing atmosphere. Well done to all our swimmers.
