The Australia Day long weekend saw seven Benalla swimmers travel to Wodonga to compete in the 2014 Victorian Country Championships.
This competition is the pinnacle of country swimming in Victoria, with more than 700 swimmers from across country Victoria racing at the new Waves pool at Wodonga.
Ryan Waddell, Charlie Boyd, Harry Botta and Chelsea Mailer competed in individual events, while Nicole Barrow, Caitlin Sinclair and Victoria Stock competed as a part of a Benalla relay team.
There were some great swims during the weekend, with Botta swimming a personal best in the 16-17 years 100
Waddell found something extra to swim a PB in the open 50
Boyd was swimming in his first country championship and competed admirably in the 100
Mailer finished fourth in the final of the girls’ 14-15 years 100
Mailer narrowly missed the final (13th) by 0.25 of a second in the 100
The Benalla girls’ 16-and-under 200
Overall the meet was a great success and provided a combination of new experiences and nail-biting finals action to fuel the motivation of swimmers for the Victorian Short Course Championships which will be held in Shepparton on August 16 and 17.
These free sessions will be held at Benalla Aquatic Centre’s 50
More information on joining the club and squad training times will be provided at these sessions, or phone Richard Mailer on 0429
