Brennan Swift, Hayley Hogan, Nick Carroll and Carter Swift will be among six Shepparton Swimming Club members to take on the state’s best juniors at this weekend’s Victorian Age Short Course Championships.
Shepparton Swimming Club’s busy short course period will finish with a bang this weekend.
Brennan, Carter and Kalen Swift, Hayley Hogan, Hayley McCulloch and Nick Carroll will contest the Victorian Age Short Course Championships at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.
A number of local swimmers will go into the event on Saturday and Sunday with a chance to claim silverware.
Club coach Willy O’Callaghan said she had been careful not to overload the swimmers.
‘‘It just seems to be one thing after another at the moment, we’re just training them to midweek and letting them taper off if they’ve got a big event at the weekend,’’ O’Callaghan said.
‘‘It’s a good chance to do some good times in a fairly big competition, then there’s not much happening for a while after that apart from solid training.’’
Carter Swift will go into the titles as the top ranked swimmer in the 100
Hogan is ranked second in her pet events, the 100
Brennan Swift has a top-10 ranking in the 50
