Salisbury Stingrays Open Meet 19th April 2015

We will be holding our popular Spring Open Meet at Five Rivers Leisure Centre in Salisbury on Sunday 19th April 2015. The competition will be licensed at level 3 and follow the same programme of 50m and 100m event as previous years.

We hope that those that have attended our Spring Meet before will remember it as being fun and friendly. For those that haven’t been before, we have excellent facilities here at Salisbury, including an eight lane pool and a large spectator gallery.

Please be aware that Five Rivers Leisure Centre is currently undergoing a lot of building work to extend it. As a result, please note the following differences from previous years:

(i) Although the pool area is unaffected, there are restrictions on parking. However, we have secured a large area for parking which is adjacent to the centre and all competitors are asked to park there – directions will be provided closer to the date of the meet.

(ii) We have reduced the number of entries for the meet to two thirds of that in previous years

(iii) We are applying a First Come First Served basis to entries.

Please return your entries as soon as possible, and no later than 26th March 2015.  All Meet documents are attached below.

We look forward to seeing many of you in April.

U19 Water Polo v Seagulls

U19 v Seagulls.  The U19 team didn’t fare so well and had a disappointing start to the first quarter ending 0-3 down. In the second quarter Dan Clarke and Sam Dalton both scored and then Holly Dennis narrowly missed adding a third. Good defence by Hazel Cutler and some inspired interceptions by Sam Dalton helped keep the score down to 2-5 at half time. Salisbury had several near misses in the third quarter with a tricky back shot by Dan Clarke skimming off the crossbar and another from Ed Rutter which rebounded into the hands of Luke Musslewhite to give us another chance just missing. Phil Rogers worked hard in defence to keep the score down. Then Dan Clarke managed to hit the back of the net taking the score to 3-7 going into the final quarter. Salisbury took the final swim off but couldn’t take advantage. Dan tried a long shot from halfway up the pool but the Seagulls goalkeeper just managed to get his fingertips in the right place to deflect it over the goal. Hazel Cutler in goal made a good save followed by Dan Clarke being awarded a penalty shot which he put in the net with ease. Sam Dalton secured another goal in the last minute of play but it wasn’t enough to save the day with the final score bring 5-10. Dan Clarke was named Man of the MatchTeam – Dan Clarke (Captain), Hazel Cutler, Sam Dalton, Holly Dennis, Zac Green, Molly Leech, Luke Musslewhite, Phil Rogers, Charlie and Ed Rutter

KS3 Waterpolo match v Dorchester

Salisbury Stingrays KS3 Waterpolo Team – Playing away in Dorchester the KS3 team faced a challenging start to the season only being able to field the bare minimum number of seven players to face a full squad of thirteen from West Dorset. However the team worked hard and kept the score at 0-1 after the first quarter. There was no change to the score by half time despite continuing attempts at goal by Bobby Speirs supported by Jed Dennis and Danny McGovern. West Dorset edged into a two goal lead in the third quarter and goalkeeper Michael Netton was kept hard at work keeping their opponents score from creeping up further. Going into the final quarter the team rallied with team captain Katy Cutler scoring a goal almost immediately. However despite speedy newcomers Joe Fenwick and Rosie Cusack putting in excellent performances the team didn’t manage to pull the match back in time and the final score was 1-3. Joe Fenwick was named Man of the Match.
