A big welcome to Sarah and Hayden Bone, Millie Humphries and Ty Stubbs. The highest scoring swimmer for participation and improvement points was Libby Shepherd who improved her time in every event and achieved the highest possible score of 24. Well done Libby!
The final event of the evening was the novelty relay. Our 4 relay teams had to push Santa's sleigh through the water in a high stakes competition, with the winning team receiving Christmas Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It was the valiant Green Team who overcame onesies, fairies, reindeer ears and general chaos to take out first place and an early dessert. We will now be taking a summer break from Time Trial meets and will resume with the school term on February 3rd 2017.
A reminder to all swimmers that in order to be eligible for Club Championship trophies you must now have competed in a minimum of 4 Time Trial Club meets.
