Surrey Park was well represented at the Victorian Open Short Course Championships held at MSAC on 18th & 19th August.
The Club secured 3rd position on the overall point
score and collected 12 medals (7 Gold, 3 Silver and 2 Bronze) along
the way as well as numerous top-ten placings and personal best
times. Congratulations to those athletes (Jemma
Schlicht, Thomas Wood and Beth Robertson) that earned individual
State Open Championships over the weekend.

- Jemma Schlicht (Gold – 50 Fly, 200 Free, 200 Fly, 100
Fly, 100 Free. Silver – 50 Free)
- Thomas Wood (Gold – 1500 Free)
- Beth Robertson (Gold – 1500 Free)
