Seymour Sharks swimming pennant winners - Senior swimmer Toby Fuhrmeister, coach and senior swimmer Sam Fuhrmeister, James Boland, coach Jennifer Fuhrmeister, coach Sandra Burton, Senior swimmer Joanne Burton.
In a great end to a magnificent season, Seymour Sharks conquered the pool in style on March 8 for the final event of the pennant season.
What made the victory sweeter was finishing off the term in the outdoor pool.
The weather was hot, the team was set.
Seymour went into their outdoor pennant 33 points behind closest rivals Mansfield.
It was a hard-fought race to the finish line, but Seymour triumphed in winning the boys and relays with Mansfield taking out the girls.
Overall Seymour was victorious in the district pennants for the 2013-14 season.
Good luck to our junior swimmers who have made it through to the All Junior Semi Finals on Saturday at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.
Seymour Sharks have one more event for their year with club champions being determined on March 29 followed by the presentation evening.
They will be taking a break until July, for those people who are interested in becoming new members of the Sharks, trials will be advertised in local school newsletters during second term.
Thanks must be given to the dedication of our coaches Sandra Burton, Jennifer and Sam Fuhrmeister.
Also we must thank our parents for their assistance over a busy season.
There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes of any sporting club and without the support of parents, running events would not be possible.
Also thanks to all the district teams Mansfield, Yea, Kilmore and Alexandra along with the officials for such a great season.
Finally to our swimmers who have worked so hard over the year to improve fitness and times.
Well done Sharks we all look forward to hearing about your successes in the 2014-2015 season.
