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 50 Free 1st, 50 Back 1st, 50 Fly 3rd
Alex Hillman 50 Free 1st, 50 Fly 4th, 50 Back 7th
Laura Davy 50 Fly 1st, 50 Breast 4th, 50 Free 6th
Emma Smithson 50 Fly 2nd, 50 Free 10th
Lewis Clarke 50 Breast 6th, 50 Back 7th, 50 Fly 7th
Chantelle Underwood 50 Free 2nd, 50 Fly 6th, 50 Breast 6th
Ryan Lobo 50 Back 5th
Cooper Cheesman 50 Breast 8th
Dani Smithson 50 Free 4th
Tori Elson 50 Back 6th, 50 Free 8th
Ebba Rosenquist 50 Fly 2nd, 50 Fee 2nd, 50 Breast 7th, 50 Back 10th
Alex Good 50 Fly 4th
Kahlia Marsh 50 Breast 4th, 50 Free 8th, 50 Fly 9th
Hamish McDougall 50 Fly 6th
Tom Curran 50 Back 4th

In the 16/U 5X50 Freestyle Relays:

Surrey Park’s Girls team finished 5th.

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

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!
