Gal­ston Goes Na­tional

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Front Page -

Gal­ston Swim­ming Club re­cently sent their big­gest team in re­cent years to the Aus­tralian Age Swim­ming Cham­pi­onships, held this year in the ex­otic lo­ca­tion of Home­bush, Syd­ney. Our six in­di­vid­ual and six re­lay swim­mers per­formed amaz­ingly well for such a small club. Laura Boll fin­ished 12th in both the 100 and 200 back, Sam Lo­ria fin­ished 17th in the 50 free, whilst Olivia Charl­ton, Jack Charl­ton, Jake Mars­den and Daniel Steer all had top 30 fin­ishes. To put that into some sort of per­spec­tive, they were all in the top 30 swim­mers in the en­tire coun­try….not bad for a lit­tle club like ours. Head Coach Stacy Hard­ing was im­pressed, but al­ready has plans for an even big­ger 2019. If you want to take your swim­ming to the next level, why not come aboard for the ride…it’s go­ing to be hair-rais­ing.

Many thanks to Ac­tive Body Phys­io­ther­apy in Cas­tle Hill for their kind spon­sor­ship of the team, and once again thank you to the Gal­ston Bendigo bank, which sup­ports the whole club with an an­nual grant. Gal­ston IGA con­tin­ues to sup­port the club on a weekly ba­sis, sup­ply­ing all the pro­duce at no charge for our fund rais­ing BBQ’s.
