Coaches Report Victorian Sprint Championships

This year, Surrey Park swimmers made the Victorian Sprint Championships one of their targeted meets and came to the competition with no less than 46 swimmers ready to compete over the 2 day meet.

Our swimmers came into the meet in various stages of fatigue due to the training phase that they are currently in, so performance was going to be “Like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get”. And that's exactly what we got, with some outstanding efforts.

Many of our swimmers made it through the preliminary heats on Saturday to come back and contend the finals on Sunday. The following swimmers were successful in making finals in individual events and reaching the podium:

Aidan Gleeson

The Boys A Team finished 8th and the B team finished 14th.

The weekend’s medal total was as follows: 3 Gold – 4 Silver – 2 Bronze. In addition, there were 35 top 10 finishes.

What a great effort from the whole team, with a very high percentage of PBs from many swimmers. A special mention to ALL our parent supporters who time kept over the weekend, especially on Saturday after nearly 11 hours at the pool. Also to Coaches Tom, Pat and Sarah – Great job guys!
