Eight members of the junior squad of Tipperary Tiger Sharks supported by parents travelled to Mallow to swim in a Grade C gala.
It was a fantastic day with our swimmers achieving personal bests on their times.
This is a well deserved result of the swimmers’ hard work, competitive spirit and commitment to training. Each swimmer demonstrated a good stroke technique and were very focused and enthusiastic, reflected in the club motto ‘It’s not how fast you swim – it’s how you swim fast.’
As a result, Tiger Sharks finished this gala with 2 new B grade swimmers, 4 individual medals and 2 third place medals for team relays. Each swimmer brought home a well deserved medal.
Tiger Sharks squad – Kieran Browne (13), Stephen Browne (11), Sean O’Neill (11), Dominic Hayes (11), Jack English (11), Una Carew (12), Maebh Hourigan (12) and Jennifer Murphy (11).
Congratulations and Best of Luck go to Kieran Browne and Una Carew who have now achieved their ‘B’ times and will join the senior squad.
The club is now looking forward to a Grade B gala on January 25 in UL.
