Season Program – Club Championships

The first of the Club Championships are being held this morning with the 100m Freestyle (Open & Age) & 100m Breaststroke (Open & Age).

All swimmers will swim together in an Open event to determine the results for the Open Championship, with the results split into ages to determine the Age Championship results. Good luck to all of the members competing in these championship events today.

The full season program can be found at https://www.merrylandsasc.asn.au/clubraces.

A big thank you to Glyn Stockley from Ripples St Mary’s Swim Club who has kindly attended to referee club races this morning. We greatly appreciate the assistance and time given up to do this for our club.

Whales Challenge #2

The second of the 3 Whales Challenges was swum last week. A Microsoft windows update stopped us giving many progress scores throughout the morning, but it was again a tightly contested challenge. After the 100m Backstroke event the teams were only separated by 4 points, with White on 757 points & Maroon on 753 points. However with a late surge the White ”Emery” team were again successful with 951 points to 888 points for the Maroon “Turner”. Congratulations to the White team.

We have one more Whales Challenge in the season to come (Saturday 5th March 2022), so this will be an opportunity for either the White team to achieve a clean sweep or the Maroon team to end the season with a victory.

Good luck to all the teams and remember it is how close your team swims to your nominated time, not how fast your team swims.
