2014 NSW Metropolitan SC Championships

This past weekend 64 Carlile athletes competed at the NSW Metropolitan Swimming Championships. Well done to all athletes and coaches on a tremendous performance as the Carlile Club captured our seventh consecutive Metropolitan Short Course Championship Title.

Competing against the best swimmers from the Sydney Metro Area the Carlile Club showed depth across all age groups producing 112 top ten swims (over a third of our total entries) and 38 of these swims resulting in medal winning performances (15G, 7S, 16B). There were countless PBs and many swimmers achieving 100% PBs in every event they swam, a great feat.

We would like to acknowledge all those who achieved top 10 results;
The Boys – Michael Young, Matt Georgevits, Brian De Bono, Daniel Ferreira, Ben Blakeney, Tom Lockhart, Nathan Taplin, Leon MacAlister, Nick Jennens, Logan Kaye, Tyson Bujak-Upton, Tyler Krenkels, Dennis Hui, Toby Peknice, Cooper Eakin, Joel Piper
The Girls – Jessie Quinn, Stephanie Bremner, Emily Washer, Kate Lee, Brittany Barnes, Shivani Eland, Abby Sherington, Christine Washer, Jemima Stratton, Jasmine Follett, Naomi Scott, Mia Rolfe, Pia Lenarduzzi, Annika Tonuri, Charli Brown, Tiarna Darley.
Fifteen swimmers went a step better winning medals, congratulations to; Daniel Ferreira, Matt Georgevits, Dennis Hui, Tyler Krenkels, Mia Rolfe, Annika Tonuri and Emily Washer on your medal winning efforts.

Lastly, special congratulations to medallists and our new NSW Metropolitan Champions; Brittany Barnes, Charli Brown, Stephanie Bremner, Nick Jennens, Leon MacAlister, Ami Matsuo, Christine Washer and Michael Young.

Achieving top 10 results and winning medals is a great achievement, but the real strength of the Carlile Club is our tremendous depth and camaraderie. It takes every athlete to makes these results a reality as the swimmers help push one another to achieve their best both in training and competition.

Once again congratulations to ALL who competed and helped the club win the first major meet of the short course season. Our sights are now set upon the State Age Short Course Championships at the end of August where the team will be hungry to improve.

We hope all swimmers enjoyed their school holidays and the coaches look forward to seeing everyone back into full training!
