Canowindra Swimming Club held the Annual Development Carnival last Sunday, with attendance numbers well up. 160 swimmers represented clubs from Orange, Bathurst, Grenfell, Cowra, Parkes and Blayney, with 40 from Canowindra.
It was an excellent meet, with some fantastic performances across the board. Specific results will appear next week. Special mentions go to the Chitukudza and Mileto families from Orange Jets, toppling PB’s and records.
Notable efforts from local swimmers include Will Wright, who smashed 16 seconds off his PB in the 100m Open Breaststroke, and in the 50m Butterfly Rhianna Reeves, Marshall McKay and Laura Flannery all beat their PB’s by 6 – 8 seconds.
Congratulations to the Canowindra swimmers for successfully defending the Hilton Cup once again, placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The winning team (pictured) are: Chris Rowston, Finlay Rowston, Will Wright, Wade Kinsela, Matt Rice, Kye Reid, Claire Wright, Hannah Etty, Brooke Kinsela, Amelia Holmes, and Julia Wright, with event patron Bob Hilton in front.
Many thanks to all of the swimmers who participated, and to the many parents and helpers who gave up their Sunday to make this another fantastic event. You all did your community proud.
