In the same age group, Maggie Skewes set records for the 100m Butterfly  and 200m Individual Medley.

Victorian Country Short Course Swimming Championships to be held in Wangaratta on 19th and 20th August 2017.

The Victorian Country Short Course Swimming Championships will be held at the Wangaratta Indoor Sports and Aquatic Centre on August 19 and 20 2017. The meet will be hosted by the Ovens & Murray District Swimming Association who hosted the meet previously at this facility in 2003, 2004, 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013. The Wangaratta Indoor Sports and Aquatic Centre is located on Schilling Drive in Wangaratta.

The indoor pool facility in Wangaratta has been ideally suited to holding this meet since opening in 2002.  The 200 grandstand seats which the district supplements with temporary grandstands and rental seating allows us to achieve the required pool seating capacity of at least 800.  The recent carpark upgrade by Council has further enhanced the facility.

Sponsorship opportunities are now available for this event. Please contact Brendon Shiels at bshiels@bigpond.com for further information.
