Day 3 update:
After Day 3 of the 2015 Victorian Age Swimming Championships, Bendigo East swimmers have produced a series of outstanding results, with most of the team swimming personal beat times. The team of 21 swimmers have been competing against the best age group swimmers in the state, as well as swimmers from interstate, Japan and New Zealand at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre. The team has made 10 finals, with Kate Jordan finishing 7th in the girls 17-18 years 100m breaststroke, 5th in 400m Individual Medley and 5th in 200m breaststroke, Matthew Slot 8th in the boys 16 years 400m freestyle and 8th in 400 IM, Emily Evans 6th in the girls 12 years 100m backstroke and 9th in 200m backstroke, Harry Downing 6th in the boys 11 and under 200m IM and Mitchell Sherlock 8th in the boys 13 and under 800m freestyle with a 14 second PB. Among many other great performances, the effort of Jarrod Slot in finishing 12th in the boys 14-15 years 1500m with a 26 second PB was outstanding. The relays teams have also performed very well, all swimming under their entry times, with the girls 12 4x50m freestyle relay and the girls 18/u 4x100m freestyle relay teams both finishing 11th.
The whole club came out to stage a very successful home Sprint meet on November 16. On a chilly and damp morning, many volunteers helped
set up to pool for racing in near record time, and 82 swimmers represented the club, making up half of the 164 swimmers competing from 13 clubs overall. The home
swimmers dominated proceedings, winning 144 of the 222 medals on offer. There were many outstanding individual performances, with the standouts including Bailey
Harriden, Mitchell Sherlock and Matthew Slot for the boys, and Holly Hawke, Emily Evans and Kate Jordan for the girls. Many of the younger swimmers swam excellent
PBs despite the cold conditions, and several meet records were set.

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."
