Great weekend of swimming and fun memories. A successful busy weekend at the Boksburg Indoor Pool.
Bernelee had an exceptional weekend of competition swimming 9 personal best times. She was awarded the Eastern Gauteng Aquatic, Girl's TOP POINT SCORE, for this Short Course Championship. Her 100m Backstroke in a long course conversion time of 1:12:53 has qualified her to compete in the South African Junior Nationals next year. Bernelee posted 149 points on the board, 8 finals and won 2 gold, 2 silver and 1 bronze medal.
ESP’s second top scorer went to Annebel Van Wyk, who swam 8 personal best times and qualified for Level 3 Regionals in 4 events. Annebel won 2 silver and 1 bronze medal.
Mikayla Pon, Ashley Corns and Morgan Corns all qualified for many finals, and are now on Level 3. With 6 months left in the season they will be working hard for more qualifying times, and possibly stepping up. Our newbies swam well and put points on the board for ESP.
Tambai Dutiro swam very well achieving 8 Personal Best times and an SA Junior time. – but only for his present age group. He will need to lower this time to qualify for next year’s Nationals, as it is only valid at his present age of 13 years.
Onalerna Matli won the Aquatic Trophy for the “most time off”. He swam 9 personal best times and shaved 47.51 seconds of his previous times.
