Club record falls af­ter 40 years

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE Isis Dis­trict Swim­ming Club 2016 Cham­pi­onships were held last Satur­day, and the near-per­fect weather helped en­sure swim­mers per­formed ex­tremely well.

All swim­mers com­peted in four com­pet­i­tive strokes, and the in­di­vid­ual med­ley.

Coach Mike Young said it was a busy morn­ing, and swim­mers achieved new per­sonal best times.

“It’s a real credit to their skill and fit­ness lev­els,” coach Young said.

“Out of 40 in­di­vid­ual swims, 24 new best times were recorded, in­clud­ing the long-stand­ing 1976, 66m 11-year-old girls’ freestyle record bro­ken by Jaylee McMa­hon.”

It was another great meet for 11-year-old Lily Bauer, who posted five new best times in five events, tak­ing off a mas­sive 25 sec­onds.

Coach Young said swim­mers needed to look out in the fu­ture for 7-year-old Ella Bartlett and 9-year-old Am­ber Bauer, who matched each other in all events.

Club vice-pres­i­dent Jenny Beck con­grat­u­lated all swim­mers com­pet­ing. She said it was all about com­pet­ing, chal­leng­ing your­self and be­ing part of a great team.

Big thanks go to club coaches Mike Roberts and Lisa Bell, who worked so well with all the swim­mers dur­ing the sea­son.

Club pre­sen­ta­tions will be held at the Woodgate pic­nic area on April 24.
