Manly swim meet
There were 16 Pirates entered to swim in the first short course meet of the year, but unfortunately due to illness we only had 13 Pirates in the water, but that was enough for 3 great relays and heaps of good times on the day.
Our club came a close 4th in the pointscore and Katie in her first swim for Pirates won her age group as did Greg Phillips – well done to you both. Joern, Jane, Rachel, Heidi and Dayle were second in their age groups and Craig and Jeff were 3rd. We had some great support from coach Graham who took splits and gave constructive feedback to all our team and from Barry who came along to take photos and Kaylee who came along as our cheer squad.
Congratulations to Greg Phillips and Katie Nilan who both broke club records at this meet.
Rachel and Sadie also completed some of the competencies toward becoming accredited timekeepers during the afternoon.
Well done to the team.
