The first PTL of the season took place on Saturday 17th September against City of Belfast at the Grove Leisure Centre.

Larne started well and although only back for just over a week and lacking a number of their regular swimmers, put in a great performance with most swimmers achieving PBs but CoB pulled back after the Butterfly & Freestyle and they eventually went on to win.

Final score: Larne 549 City of Belfast 595

Success for Conor at UK Schools' Games, Tolcross, Glasgow

Larne Swimming Club’s Conor Leaney pulled put all of the stops at the weekend when he brought home two more medals to add to his ever growing collection. The form 5 pupil from Ballyclare Secondary School was part of the Irish Schools' Team which competed at the UK Schools' Games at Tolcross, Glasgow (7th - 11th September 2006). Up against some of the best in Britain, Conor showed grit and determination when he gave the other swimmers a run for their money, taking bronze in both the 50m & 100m Freestyle. A fabulous start to what is sure to be another successful season for this very talented swimmer.
