Australian Age Championships team - Kiara, Matthew, Rebecca and Kate
The season ended in style with a glamorous gala evening. Congratulations to Kate Jordan on taking out the Beaurepaire Cup and Jean Taylor award, Matthew Slot winning the Dolphin award and to Thomas Hawke and Cameron Jordan, who shared the Ron Davies award. See the 2014 Presentation Night report and results.
The Australian Championships (Commonwealth Games trials) in Brisbane saw a fantastic week of swimming, and the Bendigo East medley relay of Carmen Franz, Kate Jordan, Rebecca Holmes and Holly Hawke produced an outstanding swim to finish 9th. The race was set up by Carmen, swimming a new personal best 100m backstroke time in the lead off leg, with Holly also swimming a PB as she anchored the team in the freestyle, following strong swims from Kate in the breaststroke and Rebecca in the butterfly legs. The team received lots of encouragement from other coaches and swimmers at the Championships, which was a great bonus for the club. It was a great result and the congratulations of everyone go to the girls!!
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."
