On the weekend of Saturday 13th – Sunday 14th October, 19 CGGS Aquatic swimmers and their families made their way to Ballarat to compete at the Ballarat Gold Swim Club Long course Meet.
The weekend commenced with a training session on the Saturday afternoon, held at the sensational Ballarat Aquatic Centre, which was followed by a team dinner. It was then time to hit the sack, as our swimmers prepared for an early morning competition start.
The expectation was that we would have a successful day both in / out of the pool, however our results in the pool were above expectations, resulting in 42 individual medals, including some strong relay placings and individual performances.
In total the club collected 16 gold medals, 12 silver medals and 14 bronze medals. Furthermore, we also achieved 2 * 1st places, 2 * 2nd places and a 3rd place in the team relays.
What a great result and team building experience for our swimmers and parents!
In true country style, our club was accepted with open arms by the Ballarat Club officials, and as expected a fun time was had by all!
CGGS Aquatic will definitely return to Ballarat again in 2019!
Well done to all concerned, it was simply a fantastic weekend!
Good swimming and have fun!
