Barnet Copthall divers have been competing against six London Diving Clubs all year round in the Bill Johnson Championship. Each competition requires clubs to field divers in every category from Novice to senior to accumulate championship points.
In 2016 Barnet Copthall Diving Club came a close second just missing the top spot by only 2 points. On Sunday 26th November they travelled to Waltham Forest for the last and final leg of this 2017 championship, at the start of the day they were in second place and ten points behind Amersham Diving club and what seemed an impossible target.
After some amazing dives, Barnet Copthall finished at a staggering 26 points over Amersham’s 22 points giving Barnet Copthall the victory by a margin of 4 points!!
Barnet Copthall bought home 8 gold, 6 Silver and 3 Bronze Medals from the competition as well as the Bill Johnson Trophy!
Head Coach Justine Green said she was thrilled with the result and that the divers had deserved it for all their effort and hard work.
A huge congratulations to the Barnet Copthall Diving Club and to Head Coach Justine for a great achievement.
