Strong Dolphins side retains masters trophy

The Lincolnshire County Amateur Swimming Association Carol Patch 2012 Masters Championship & Team Trophy Award has been running for 25 years and for the second year was held at the Meridian Leisure Centre, Louth.

Louth Dolphins Masters section was formed five years ago and has steadily been growing from strength to strength under the watchful guidance of Coaches Rose Stanhope, Steve Armstrong, Sarah Richardson and new boy Russell Gardner.

This culminated in a magnificent performance, destroying the strong opposition and Louth ran out easy winners. A fabulous team effort everyone giving 100 per cent and enjoying the occasion and retaining the trophy won last year for the first time.

Louth got 200 points and in second place Lincoln Vulcans got 112 points.

The evening concluded on a sad note with presentations from Louth Swimming Club and The Masters Section to Rose Stanhope who has sadly retired as their Coach and Founding inspiration.
