Medalists from the Echuca Spring Carnival.
The final event of the 2014 edition of the Eaglehawk Winter Series was held on Sunday, and in a very closely contested competition, the team finished runners up to the Bendigo Hawks in the overall standings. East's swimmers were very consistent through the series, and there were many outstanding results. Individual winners included Liam Dole in the 7 and under boys, Jarrod Slot in the 12-13 years boys and Bryce Schubert in the 14-15 years boys. Xavier Morrissey was third in the 12-13 years boys competition. For the girls, Amy Jacobsen was second in the 7 years and under division, and Ella Downing runner up in the 8-9 years competition. Congratulations to all who represented the team!
Kate continued her excellent recent form at the 2014 Victorian Age Short Course Championships, winning a bronze medal in the 17-18 years 200m breaststroke in the Finals session on Saturday night. The youngest competitor in the field, Kate swam a brilliant race to finish very strongly in her third final of the evening. She then continued her amazing run with a powerful swim in the 200m butterfly on Sunday, winning silver.
The Bendigo East Swimming Club is very proud to announce a joint venture with the Melbourne Vicentre club. As a result of this arrangement, swimmers will have opportunities to train with Vicentre squads in Melbourne on a regular basis. The club looks forward to the further development and strengthening of the links with one of the strongest clubs in Australia.
"BESC aims to develop the opportunity for swimmers of all abilities to progress from learning to swim to competitive swimming, and achieve their full potential in a supportive, friendly, and social setting. The club encourages community and team spirit, and strives to promote a lifelong love of the sport."
