MSNSW SC Championships
October 20, 2016 at 8:57 PM
A very successful weekend for 11 Ryde swimmers coming in 4th overall despite not having targeted this meet. Manly were way ahead as winners - congratulations to them all and to Warringah and Seaside Pirates ahead of us.
We scored 20 gold, 3 silver and 8 bronze medals. Individually in age groups: 1st place to Jenny, Amanda U and Jamie, 3rd places to Alan, Helen and Nick. Particular mention should be made of Nick at his first ever Masters Championships getting 3 gold and coming 3rd in his age group; also of Alan (our Safety Officer) who scored 3 silver and a bronze swimming 5 events and a relay all in one day where the rest of us swam over two days. And everyone did their share of timekeeping; also Ryde contributed 4 Officials for the weekend (Greg, Susan, Jamie and Helen).
Medals were won as follows: Jenny and Jamie 5 G; Amanda 4G, 1B; Nick 3G; Susan 2G, 1B; Helen 2G, 1B; Sandie 1G, 1B, Alan 3S, 1B; Yvette, 1S, 2B; Cassie 2B.
Our relays did well nearly getting a gold until the timing equipment was corrected! Otherwise our three relays all came a respectable second.
