The Marlins have continued to grow and improve throughout the 2019/2020 season. Under the able captaincy of Nat Amos and Iris Hall, the Marlins have increased their training – both in and out of the pool – and continued to have more socials over the course of the year. This marks a continuation of the long-term plan to increase the competitiveness of the Marlins while not compromising on the fun! Despite a strong performance at Varsity, with improvements in speed in almost every event, the Marlins were narrowly pipped to the finish by a very strong Oxford team who are much larger in number due to their enviable training facilities. Special mentions must go to Nick Maini who smashed the 50 Fly and the members of the women’s team that stepped up to fill the gaps caused by a very last-minute absence! Despite this difficult loss, the Marlins went on to compete hard on the dancefloor in the night out following. The team continues to improve year on year, bring on Varsity 2021!
Iris Hall & Nat Amos
With continuing competitiveness of the Marlins, the team went from strength to strength throughout the year. Although this did not end in success in the pool the team continues to grow, even with the limited pooltime available to the team.
