THE team from Western Aus­tralia has shown the rest of the coun­try that west is best af­ter pick­ing up the Club of the Year award for the sec­ond year run­ning at the 2017 Aus­tralian Div­ing Age Cham­pi­onships in Ade­laide.

The team fin­ished the week with 14 gold, five sil­ver and four bronze medals, along with 16 per­sonal best per­for­mances.

West Leederville’s Sam Tulk took out Diver of the Year in the boys 14-15 years di­vi­sion, as did Tianna Fur­ness (girls 1618 years) and Kath­leen Sul­li­van (women 19 and above).

Ben Ward (men 19 and above) and Eloise Miller (girls 12-13 years) were not far be­hind in their age groups, fin­ish­ing sec­ond and third.

Mike Tin­ley, El­iza Cole and Mercedes Carnevali coached the ath­letes through­out the year, and Jo Fur­ness took on the role of team man­ager for the trip.

The team will have a short break be­fore re­turn­ing to the pool.
