Cronulla Swim Club Carnival - Caringbah Pool - 21st Dec 2002

This was our last meet before Christmas and our club was represented by 43 swimmers which was an amazing effort - was it the lure of Christmas chocolates? It was the first outdoor meet we have attended this summer and it was interesting to see how our kids would swim against a strong headwind - or against the tide as it appeared!

For Megan and Holly Julian it was their first ever swimming carnival. Megan was 2nd in the 9 yr 50m Breast and 3rd in the 10/under 100m Breast. Holly(10) also did PB's in her 50m Breast and 50m Free. Congratulations to both of you and we hope you enjoyed your first swimming carnival.

Conor Davis (7) won his 1st swimming medal and Eliza Casaceli celebrated her last few days as a 7 year old by winning 4 medals from 4 events.

Andrew Kennedy had a brilliant swim in the 10/u 100 Free. Andrew led from the start and won the event in 1.14.87 (PB). Matt Spence was 2nd with 1.15.28 (PB).

Morgan Sara had a successful day and once again swam in both the 12/u and Open relays for us. Both relays took out first place! Thank you to Fiona who brought Meagan and Lauren up so that we could field 2 Open Relay teams - our other Open team came 2nd which was a great effort from all our kids.
