Time Trials
Congratulations to all swimmers who competed in Time Trials on Thursday 28th October. We had 19 swimmers two of whom raced for the very first time, Adam L. and Billie Jo B. There were more than 30 Personal Best Times swum at the meet and several swimmers achieved qualifying times for this years Country Championships. This is a great result so early in the season.

Keep an eye on results which will be placed up on the Equipment Cart next week – as well as through our online results on our website. A big thankyou to all the parents who assisted with time keeping – without you all these events will not run. Next week we will print the time trial roster for the season, apologies to those who did not receive notice of this event. Our next time trial will be Thursday 11th November – the week before our carnival.
