Abbotsleigh Invitational Meet August 6, 2017

21 of our Abbotsleigh junior swimmers competed at our Invitational Meet. There was positive energy that entertained us all day. The enthusiasm to compete and your wonderful smiling faces showed the wider swimming community what team Abb is all about. Swimmers showed great intent around the race skills they had been working on in training that resulted in fantastic racing. The Abb Sprit was on display during our relays with some amazing efforts from all those that took part.

Coaches would like to the celebrate the efforts of two swimmers:
