WHAT a great couple of days for the Bay and Basin Amateur Swim Club at the SESA Area Championships and Speedo Sprints that were held at Ulladulla last weekend.
Bay and Basin were represented by 19 swimmers aged eight to 15 years.
It was a hot and windy carnival but many personal bests were broken and the club had swimmers make it to the finals of the Speedo Sprints that will be held at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre in March.
The boys were represented by Jay Bellwood, Jeremy Head, Conor McLean and Bryn Robinson-Mills.
Jay Bellwood broke two personal bests, one being a massive three seconds in the 100 metre breaststroke.
Jay also placed third in three events.
Jeremy Head broke the 200 metre freestyle by a whopping 12 seconds.
Jeremy is also off to the Speedo Sprints for the 50 metre freestyle.
Conor McLean broke five personal bests out of six races and also is off to the Speedo Sprints for 50 metre backstroke.
The youngest male swimmer Bryn Robinson-Mills had two awesome swims with big personals bests in both the 50 metre backstroke and 50 metre freestyle.
The girls were represented by Abby-Lee Edwards, April Hawkins, Tara Bellwood, Alyssa Head, Felicity Hector, Annalise McDonald, Chelsie McKnight, Halle McKnight, Chelsea Pascoe, Janae Peterson, Gabi Peterson, Freya Robinson-Mills, Kaitlyn Sennitt, Timira Squires-Thomas and Hannah Thompson.
Tara Bellwood will be representing the club at Speedo Sprints for the 50 metres butterfly and 50 metre freestyle.
Chelsie McKnight will be off to the sprints and also racing the 50 metre butterfly.
Congratulations to the girls who broke personal bests but a huge thumbs up to Janae Peterson who broke six personal bests and Freya Robinson-Mills who broke five personal bests.
Abby-Lee Edwards, Annalise McDonald, Chelsea Pascoe and Gabi Peterson broke four personal bests.
Timira Squires-Thomas, Hannah Thompson and Chelsie McKnight broke three personal bests each.
Felicity Hector broke her 50 metre backstroke by a huge 10 seconds.
The club is certainly starting to make a mark within the Shoalhaven and this year was ranked ninth overall after the championships.
Thank you to all the parents who were there for their kids and to Kim and Jemma for their wonderful coaching over the two days.
