A few of the highlights from the meet were:

The Boys 16 years 50 and 100 Freestyle events saw Will improve on his entry times, lifting his ranking in the 50 Free from 33rd to 17th and in the 100 Free from 44th to 37th.   

Nicholas performed well in the Boys 13 years 50 and 100 Freestyle events. He swam a personal best time of 26.33 for his 50 Freestyle, and an improvement of 0.49 of a second in the 100 Freestyle lifted his ranking from 21st to 17th.

Maggie had a big week of competition swimming with 7 events and making finals in 4 of these. Maggie brought home Bronze in the Girls 14 years 100 Butterfly swimming a time of 1:02.76 (an improvement of 1.8 seconds). She also medalled in the 200 Freestyle (an exciting race for those watching) which saw Maggie lift from 6th position on the last turn to storm home into 3rd swimming a personal best time of 2:05.74 knocking 2.12 seconds off her entry time. This gave her the Victorian Country Record for this event formally held by team mate Elli Warren.

Zoe also had an outstanding week bringing home Gold in the Girls 17-18 years 100 Breaststroke. She took 2.32 seconds off her entry time to swim a time of 1:10.31 - the result has also given her the Victorian Country Record holder for this event. Another Victorian Country Record fell after her performance in the 200 Breaststroke where she swam a personal best time of 2:31.36. This 2.69 second improvement on her entry time rewarded Zoe with a Bronze medal.                        

In the Multi Class events, Albury’s Brooke King had an outstanding meet. Brooke was entered in 6 events, and swam personal best times in all her events.  Highlights for Brooke would have to be her Gold Medal performance in the 100 Freestyle where she knocked almost 2 seconds off her entry time.  Brooke also came home with two silver medals.

Olivia Miller from Wangaratta Stingrays Swim Club had her first experience of Age Championships and performed well in the 50 Backstroke.

Well done to all our swimmers.
