Four Benalla swimmers achieved nine personal bests at the Victorian Sprint Championships in Melbourne last weekend.
Ryan Waddell, Lachlan Waddell, Harry Botta and Chelsea Mailer competed at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre among the fastest 50
Botta swam a personal best in backstroke in 32.76
Lachlan achieved three personal bests — in the backstroke (33.83), butterfly (30.82) and freestyle (28.11).
Mailer also achieved personal bests in all her events: breaststroke (39.32), backstroke (34.88), butterfly (31.26) and freestyle (29.71). This was the first time she had swum the freestyle event in under 30
Two swimmers just missed the finals, with Ryan finishing 15th in open backstroke, and Mailer finishing 16th out of 77 competitors in her 15-year-old freestyle event.
Six swimmers also travelled to Kyabram earlier this month to compete at an encouragement meet and produced excellent times.
On a day so hot that the starting area had to be watered down, Caitlin Sinclair, Amelia and Domi Lee, Lily Cooke and Cassidy and Maddison Mailer braved the heat and all swam at least one personal best.
The girls brought home two gold, three silver and four bronze medals from the day.
Anybody interested in swimming with the Benalla Swimming Club is encouraged to come to the Benalla Aquatic Centre on Tuesdays or Thursdays at 4.15
