The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Horsham Swim­ming Club mem­bers en­joyed suc­cess in the pool at Vic­to­rian Coun­try Short Course Cham­pi­onships in Wan­garatta.

Five Horsham Sharks – Hugo Hop­per, Matt Ough, Clau­dia Lanyon, Lily Bolton and Dea­con Briggs – com­peted in 21 events at the week­end, gain­ing eight per­sonal bests.

Club pub­lic­ity of­fi­cer He­len Wills said the swim­mers were pleased with their per­for­mances.

“Horsham Swim­ming Club com­peti­tors worked hard to gain qual­i­fy­ing times and then com­pete at this level against the best swim­mers in coun­try Vic­to­ria,” she said. “They had some ter­rific re­sults. “Clau­dia Lanyon, who was par­tic­i­pat­ing in her first short-course coun­try cham­pi­onships, was es­pe­cially ex­cited by ev­ery­one cheer­ing for her at the end of her lane.

“She cer­tainly loves swim­ming be­cause she was back in the pool for train­ing at 6am on Mon­day morn­ing.”

The com­pe­ti­tion in­cluded 443 swim­mers from 36 clubs across Vic­to­ria.
