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
