State Sprint and Relay Championships

Congratulations to all swimmers who participated in last weekends State Sprint and Relay Championships. Over 500 swimmers from 18 clubs competed to be State Champions.

Our girls relay team took out 3rd place in the 11 & under 4 X 50m Medley Relay. This is the club's first ever medal at the state level, what an amazing achievement, with the girls taking 12 seconds off their declared personal best times. Well done Florencia Moraga, Kristien Niemann, Alexandra Lowe and Julia Weltner.

There were many other PBs swum at the meet, and it was a great opportunity to see how our club measures up against those that have access to training 12 months of the year.
