Hunters take 6 medals and 2 Club Records at State Relays.

What a great day for the club at the annual Victorian State Relay Championships.

We had 21 teams compete and there were some fabulous successes with 2 Gold, 2 Silver and 2 Bronze medals, as well as two Club Records set.

Team spirit was terrific and the teams were keen and competitive.

And of course there were many highlights.

Just a few included:

  • The total dominance of the Masters men sprints with a club record in one event and a dropped baton in the other (and they were on the way to another record).
  • A runaway win in the girls Under 16 medley in club record time, 15 seconds better than the old record.
  • The Open Men’s 4 *100m in a very close finish for second but highlighted by some great baton changes.
  • A very close 4th in the Open 4 * 800m after Australian representative Alex Rowe from Deakin club ran a blinder to take Bronze from our grasp.
  • A Silver and Bronze to our Under 14 boys teams with terrific efforts from all. Young Liam Walsh 11, Liam Glew 12 and with Romin, David and Will, all 13, they looked every part a great team allround. Special mention here to Will Sharp, fresh off the plane from Adelaide in the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships where he contested 12 races and medalled.
