Swim­mers im­press

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE SEC­OND club night saw swim­mers once again brave the cold to bet­ter their times on club night last Thurs­day.

Many younger swim­mers posted times for the first time, times which they will un­doubt­edly bet­ter over the sea­son when they have had more time in train­ing and have more race ex­pe­ri­ence un­der their belts.

This was good prepa­ra­tion for eight of the swim­mers who com­peted at the Bur­nett Fraser Team Chal­lenge in Mary­bor­ough on Satur­day.

This meet was de­signed to re­move the fo­cus from in­di­vid­ual swim­mers and to swim with a team fo­cus and en­hance team spirit.

Points earned were then cal­cu­lated tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion the num­ber of swim­mers in each team.

Isis was in the points lead at lunch time with some great swims from the team, and as they had only eight swim­mers com­pet­ing were limited to just one team in the re­lay events.

That said Isis won the only re­lay in which they were able to com­pete.

It was a great day and in the end Isis came home with third place over­all.
