Three swimmers from the Enniskillen Lakelanders Swim Club made the trip to Dublin's National Aquatic Centre for the Leinster Long Course meet. Joining a large number of swimmers from over 40 clubs across the Leinster region the Lakelanders were excited for their first Long Course Meet of the season.

Izzy Lannon (16) competed in seven events across the two-day meet. Showing her versatility Izzy swam events across every stroke and both the 200m and 400m Individual Medley races. Strong swims in each event saw Izzy achieve top ten finishes in the open (17 and over) category. The highlight of the meet for Izzy was a six second personal best in the 100m Butterfly finishing in a time of 1:16.44, fourth fastest in the 17-year-old category. Izzy has now secured qualification times for six events at Irish Summer Nationals.

Anna McDade (16) took the opportunity at this meet to try some new stroke strategies across her three chosen events. Anna finished in the top 10 in 17-year-old age group across all three events, with two times in the bag for Summer National Competitions and has gained valuable experience for the Long Course season ahead.

Younger sister Kate McDade (14) competing in the 15–16-year-old age group, completed the gruelling 800m Freestyle for the first time. In a perfectly executed race, Kate knocked a massive 30 seconds of her entry time, finishing as the third 15-year-old age. A solid swim in 200m Breaststroke secured a PB and a top ten finish. With two qualification times for the Summer Nationals this was a great performance from Kate in her NAC debut and an encouraging start to the Long Course season for the young swimmer.

Gala Secretary Michelle Reihill praised the swimmers performances, this is an encouraging start to the Long Course season for our senior swimmers, with PBs and Irish Summer National qualification times secured.
