Stingrays get back to business with Friday Night Lights

Stingray Swim Club is partnering with the Business Solutions Technologies Group Ltd to present the first Friday Night Lights of the 2014-15 Competitive Age Group Swim Season.  

The first Friday Night Lights is this weekend, Oct. 17, at the Lions Aquatic Center and will see swimmers, 11 years and older, competing in longer distance events such as the 1500 meters, 800m, 400m and 200m events.  

Iain McCallum, winner of Saturday’s CUC 800m, will be competing and vying for more success.  

Although competitive swimmers train through the summer, this will be the first time back on the blocks in a competitive environment for some swimmers since June, so energy and excitement will be in high supply. 

Isaac Rankine, Business Solutions Technology Group, said: “We are delighted to join the businesses in Cayman that support Stingray Swim Club.  

“The opportunity to be part of a sport which demands commitment, dedication and focus from our youth – some of them as young as 4 – is an honor and we look forward to seeing our support translate into success in the pool, in school and in our community for the swimmers.” 

“We encourage everyone in the community to come out and support these young athletes,” said Stingray’s head coach Andy Copley. “Entry is free and it would be really great to have the community turn out to cheer on Cayman’s young swimmers.” 

Stingray club president Amanda Roberts is also looking forward to the meet. “BSTG Friday Night Lights swim meet will have some exciting races and serve as a warm up for the shorter, sprint events taking place the next day,” she said.  

“I add my encouragement to that of coach Andy. It would be great to have full stands at the meet. I am delighted to welcome the Business Solutions Technology Group to our swim family.” 

Friday Night Lights starts with a warm up from 4-4.15 p.m. and competitive action starts at 5.30 p.m.
