Stingray swimmers make a spooky splash

Key Leader 034 (300x278).jpg(CNS): Members of the Stingray Swim Club were pitted against members of the Camana Bay Aquatic Club (CBAC) at the weekend in a ‘spooky splash’ meet just ahead of Halloween involving a cross section of local swimmers, from seasoned CARFITA athletes such as Alex McCallum and Catrionae Macrae alongside new comers to the competitive swimming team. “It’s always a good experience to compete in an environment which is different from that which you train in; against swimmers whom you do not train with,” said Coach Andy Copley.

“We had a number of personal bests swum at the meet, one – maybe more – new SSC record set, and CARIFTA qualifying times were made … and some qualifying times which had already been made were lowered. It’s early yet in the swim season, but we are training hard and getting faster. Exciting stuff, ” he added.

SSC President, Brenda McGrath said the Stingray team had a great morning with some strong swims against great competition. We especially liked the spooky awards. Now we are now looking forward to the Michael Lockwood Memorial Swim Meet (Pirates Week) which is a full, three day meet, and takes place between the 14 to 18 November as well as our trip to Kingston, Jamaica for the Jamaica Christmas Open  14-16 December which will give our older swimmers some good long course experience.”
