Carroll, Hart and Crosier bettered their times in all four disciplines, Hayley McCulloch made PBs in the backstroke and freestyle and twin sister Emma also swam a PB in freestyle.

Shepparton Swimming Club coach Willy O’Callaghan said it was a good event to get an indication of where the swimmers were at because they only swam against competitors their own age.
It is restricted to swimmers under-14 from the country and they must finish in the top five at their district event to qualify.
‘‘It’s a very good meet to start getting kids interested in racing and also performing well in their age group, so I’m fairly proud of our kids getting lots of PBs,’’ O’Callaghan said. ‘‘It doesn’t matter if they won, what does matter is if they PB and some kids didn’t because they get nervous, so it’s a good training ground to help learn all the things to make you faster.’’
