As a result of obtaining the qualifying times for both the 50m Butterfly and Backstroke events at the Swim Ulster Schools meet in October 2015, Simon Matterson attended the Irish Schools Finals competition which was held in the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin. The best Swimmers from all 4 provinces in Ireland were represented at Under 11 and Under12 age Groups.
Congratulations to our swimmers who competed in the Swim Ulster Schools Championships. Many of the Rainey competitors achieved personal best times and thoroughly enjoyed their swims in the 50m Bangor Aurora aquatic & Leisure Complex.
We had 3 swimmers make Ulster finals. Simon Matterson – 4th in 50m Butterfly & 5th in 50m Backcrawl, Louis Regan 5th in 50m Breastroke and Hannah Slane 8th in 100m Breaststroke. The 2 boys have qualified for the Irish Schools Championships.
Many thanks to all the Rainey parents, teachers and helpers over the 2 days.
