Club record falls after 40 years
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.
