June 18th 2004- Club Night

A nice surprise tonight as some old faces popped in for a visit. Grant Rawson, a former member of our club, came to visit as he sometimes does. Grant gave Meagan some competition in the 50m Fly just to keep her on her toes! Our former assistant coach, Garry Baglin, also came to watch the night's swimming. It is great to have Garry still taking an interest in our swimmers even though he is back to his regular day job now - exploring in the outback is about as far away as you can get from being a swim coach! Thank you for your continued interest as it is very much appreciated by the swimmers and their parents.

Good luck to those swimmers who will be competing at the Campbelltown meet on Sunday.

 

Queen's Birthday Swim Meets

This weekend has seen some of our swimmers travel to meets near and far. A small band of travellers went to the McCredie Pk 8/under (are we there yet?) Sam Fowler, Conor Davis, Daniel Davis, Travis Jemmeson and Katelyn Kishawi were our representatives on the day. Katelyn had a great afternoon winning the 7 yr Fly and a medal in the Breaststroke. What a wonderful bonus for someone who decided to go at the last minute so that the club could field a relay team! The swim of the day would have to go to 7 yr old Sam Fowler who has taken 8 seconds off his 100m IM the last 2 days. Congratulations to our 8/u Medley relay team (Conor, Sam, Katelyn and Travis) for winning Bronze in the relay. This has always been a great meet to attend with little ones and was well worth the drive.

The SLC Aquadot meet was successful with our team of 10 swimmers winning 11 Gold, 8 Silver and 6 Bronze medals. This was a very pleasing result considering that 2 of our swimmers were competing out of their age groups and one swimmer went home sick after only one event. Congratulations to Brigitta Schyns who won multiple medals and swam as many PB's and to Zac Fowler on achieving his Freestyle State Qualifying times in both the 50m and 100m.

Lucy and Jessica Ford were in Kiama and just thought they would do a meet while they were there. Lucy swam a Fly PB and won 3 medals so that was a nice bonus.

 

11th June 2004 Club night 

The long weekend had an impact on club numbers tonight but it was still a good turnout with 43 swimmers attending. Races were all over in an hour! Amazingly, some swimmers raced 4 events in this time and still did multiple PBs. 

Congratulations to Cassandra Blake who swam 100% Pbs tonight. There were also some wonderful IM swims with Logan Weir, Hannah Buchanan and Grace Strawbridge and Travis Jemmeson all taking many seconds off their PBs. 

Club records were also broken tonight with Barbara Efremova lowering her own 11 yr 100m Free record and Sam Fowler taking the 7 yr 50m Free record
