The temperature wasn’t the only thing running hot last Friday, as our Manta Rays took to the pool for sprint night.
Our 20 metre freestyle swimmers were first in, with many of our 4-6 year olds now swimming unassisted, thanks to a great learn to swim program offered at Maclean Olympic Swimming Pool.
Well done Leni, Kiya, Ruby, Tasmyn, Lana, Kai, Reef, Sienna, Nathan and Willow! It also won’t be long until our 30m freestyle swimmers qualify for the 50m event. Congratulations to Chelsea, Caidence, Maddi and Luciano for improving each week.
The night continued to sizzle as Charlotte and Harry Pye battled it out in the 50m breaststroke. They were neck and neck the whole way, but Charlotte finally finished victorious. No doubt all of the breaststroke Ruth Everuss had Charlotte do in training last week paid off.
The Maclean Manta Rays Swimming Club is now producing the second generation of swimmers in the Lower Clarence area, with an emphasis on fun, friendship and fitness. Our swimmers range from novice to experienced, compete against their own times and exhibit terrific team spirit when encouraging their team mates to succeed.
The Manta Rays meet every Friday night at the Maclean Olympic Swimming Pool on Argyle St, Maclean. Next week will be the first in our long distance program starting with 400m freestyle.
