The Somerset Swim Club held its February Swim Meet, the 2017 Somerset Sprint Meet on Saturday 4 February. The day saw over 350 competitors from Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Northern New South Wales compete.
Somerset had its largest ever contingent with 101 swimmers and a few Somerset-trained international swimmers race, making for a very busy day.
Quite a few records were broken on the day and Somerset swimmers Brooke Otto, Anarnya Berlowitz, Millie Entwistle, Ben Treffers, Regan Leong and Mia Graham were among them. Thank you to the Somerset Students who supported the event and were able to be credited with Community Service by assisting with timekeeping, marshal running and in food delivery to officials.
A large thank you to the band of volunteers (parents and children) who helped make the day the best yet by the Club, in keeping the many roles filled and completed their roles with a smile despite the heat. Lastly, to the coaches Graeme, Ash, Taylor and Cheryl, who looked after all our swimmers in preparing them and rallying them on the day, thank you.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
