Perfect conditions for Stawell District 12 swim meet

STAWELL Swimming Club hosted the final regular season meet of the Wimmera District 12 season on Saturday under clear blue skies in perfect conditions.

The club had been set to host the second meet of the season in early December but was forced to postpone their meet due to threats of storms.

Club secretary Belinda Dingley said numbers had been up for the meet at Stawell, compared to past seasons.

“It was a really great day and everyone enjoyed themselves,” she said.

“Many of the races were very close with a lot of cheering individual clubs.”

There were 117 swimmers that accounted for 517 individual even entries as well as 57 relay entries.

At the end of the day the Horsham Sharks came out on top in the team points standings, the club finished just four points ahead of Ararat and six ahead of third-placed Stawell.

Jaxon Healey and Annaliese Spark won the perpetual trophies in their home meet as the winners of the 16 and over age groups.
