Stingrays hit the pool with impressive form

Stawell Stingrays members have been impressive in the pool this season with the club having competed at three meetings to open the new season.

The meetings have been at Stawell, Horsham and Warracknabeal.

Jordan Austin and Jayden Dignan have been two of the outstanding performers with Jordan winning fourteen of her eighteen races across the three meets and placing in the remaining four.

Similarly Jayden has placed first ten times from eighteen races and placed in the remaining eight.

Both swimmers have been working hard at training and will continue their form into next year.

First year senior swimmers Belinda Dingley, Simon Healy and Calinda Barker all performed extremely well in their first meet at Stawell leading the way for the younger swimmers.

Other first year swimmers include Mekaylah Kuchel, Saige Omernik, Amy and Josh Reid, Kobe Smith, India Warren and Natalie Wemyss.

Mekaylah has improved her times each meet gaining confidence with every swim. India received her first placing at the Warracknabeal meet coming second in the 50 metre freestyle.

Madix Perry and Harley Healy have continues their good form from last year dominating the under nine age group. It is very rare for them both not to be in the top three of an event.

Both Harley and Madix represented the club in the open men's medley relay in Stawell with Harley nearly beating his father Simon.

Big improvers on last year include Jack Simmons, Andreas and Angus Stoffel and Bayley and Kyle Dignan.

Stingrays coach Ben Hughes said he expected all swimmers will have a big season after the Christmas break.

The club's first meet back after Christmas is the Ararat Swimming Club meet on February 8, at the Stawell Leisure Centre.
