Club nights now back on for 2017

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

The Can­non­vale Can­nons Swim Club re­sumed its club nights for 2017 on Wed­nes­day night.

Club pres­i­dent Tony Parkin­son was sur­prised by the at­ten­dance con­sid­er­ing it was the first week of school and also on Aus­tralia Day eve.

Coaches Ken Crittenden and Mark Erick­son were very im­pressed with swim­mers’ per­for­mances. Their high­lights in­clude new swim­mers Kaia and Jakarra Hef­fer­nan and Max and Sam McLeod swim­ming very well in the first club night with the Can­nons.

The top per­form­ers of the were Zavier Goswell, Mae Carter-Attwood, Blake Hanks, Ja­cob Bell, Te­gan Hanks, Rylee Erick­son and Isaac Ben­son. All of these swim­mers swam over 17 sec­onds off their best times. Zavier Goswell took 25 sec­onds off his pre­vi­ous time in 50m But­ter­fly, which is an out­stand­ing ef­fort.

Dur­ing the night, sev­eral swim­mers achieved upgrade times which means they can swim the big­ger dis­tance. These swim­mers in­cluded Kaia Jef­fer­nan, Jai Den­ni­son, Mitchell Milostic, Matilda Den­ni­son, Blake and Te­gan Hanks, Austin Edward-Bland, Ja­cob Bell, Ja­cob Dewis and Alex Grossi.

The coaches would like to thank all the won­der­ful par­ents for all their as­sis­tance with run­ning Club Night.

Cameron and Alan­nis Rusk have moved back to the Sun­shine Coast but are still Can­non­vale Can­nons Swim Club mem­bers. Cameron and Alan­nis com­peted in Mur­gon over the week­end and have qual­i­fied for State Sprints in February. Cameron has now qual­i­fied for three events and Alan­nis for her very first, the 50m Back­stroke.

This week­end, over 12 Can­nons will be trav­el­ling to Townsville to com­plete in the Townsville Tourists Swim Car­ni­val. This is the last op­por­tu­nity some swim­mers will have to qual­ify for State Sprints (if they haven’t al­ready).
