Out of the pool for the season

After a massive 18 weeks of racing, Young Swimming Club has set the race clocks for the last night of swimming club for the season.

Organisers for the Young Swimming Club have said they have had a tremendous season with new members joining the club, individual swimmers improving each and every week and the team’s spirit strong at all of their representative carnivals.

“Something our kids need to be proud of,” Young Swimming Club’s Michele Turner said.

The Club’s last meeting saw the barbeque sell out in record time.

“Being free wouldn’t have had anything to do with it,” Turner said jokingly

High point scorers – 

Individual Medley: Anna Cockburn, Claire Graham, Alice Beveridge, Josh Graham, Bradley Dillon, Christine Garlick and Elisabeth Hall.

Butterfly: Elyse Shea, Seanna New, Max Shea, Patrick Madden and Elisabeth Hall.

Backstroke: Stephanie Clark, Albie Dowling and Sasha Waugh. 

Freestyle: Sam Beveridge, Nicholas Slavin, Elyse Shea, Josh Graham, Bradley Dillon, Kadence Hardy and Lydia Martin.

Young Swimming Club would like to make special mention of Thomas Murphy. After 11 years of swimming club, countless early mornings and laps following the black line, Thomas is leaving the club to take on a new job. The Club wishes Murphy all the best and wants him to know he will be missed.

Well done to the Young Swim Club members who competed at the Speedo Sprint Series at Homebush Aquatic Centre last Sunday. There were excellent results, many PB’s and a fun time had by all.

The Club is now looking ahead to presentation night this Friday where the club and the kids without their caps and goggles will have a fun night celebrating the success of another great swim season.  

There is great anticipation to see who wins the Golden Bucket Annual Award this year.

Though the official season is over the Club still have some kids in training for the final events for the 2016/2017 season coming up with the Brophy Invitational Event at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra and our secondary and primary students who have qualified for school representative carnivals.

The club wishes all swimmers the best of luck in their final meets.

Until next season.
