27 Samakee Stingers ranging from Year 1 – Year 6 took to the pool at ISB on Saturday. We had 6 members taking part in their first Swim Meet and many other children were swimming in new events, so as you can imagine there were lots of nervous swimmers and parents.
All our swimmers achieved a Personal Best in one or more events which is fantastic! It is very exciting to see the progress made by all the swimmers since starting this squad back in September. Each time we enter and attend a Swim Meet, we witness small changes and I am pleased with the individual successes. More importantly the attitude of our swimmers is always positive.
Well done to Mai, Tonwaan, Luke, Chino, Mee Pooh and Nadia who took part in their first Swim Meet for Samakee.
Axel, Neila, Penguin, Kate, Lucas Y3, and Jayden took part in the 100m IM for the first time this weekend and all achieved good times.
Matthew, Mats, Mindy, Mill, Lowey, Mint, Hann, Ryan, Hugh, Lucas Y5, Arthur, Damion, Andrew, Gweiling and Taisan achieved Personal Best Times.
Mats did extremely well in his heat placings and achieved a good position overall in 8 & U Boys competition, Good Job Mats!
Well done to all and as always we still have plenty to practise.
