17 swimmers proudly represented Fairfield Swimming Club recently at the New Zealand Short Course Champs in Auckland.
We are very pleased to say that Fairfield finished 5th club overall out of 81 competing clubs.
Within this group we had 4 rookies competing at their first National event, so a big experience for them – well done to Ella, Kelly, James-Hardy and Calib. We also had Bradlee and Jesse who train with High Performance squad representing us as well.
A big congrats to the rest of the squad – Claudia, Andrew, Sophie, Peyton, Jaxyn, Hamish, Michiel, Jessica, Kaitlyn S, Maddison and Jordyn for your superb efforts. The whole squad supported all swimmers cheering from the sidelines with great enthusiasm- it’s a wonder some had a voice afterwards.
There were many PBs attained with all swimmers giving their utmost in their events with some our swimmers making open finals in some of their events.
Acknowledgment to the follow swimmers for their results:
Andrew Jeffcoat – A Gold and 2 Silver age group medals. He swam 7 events and made finals in all 7. Most impressively he had a 100% PB rate.
Jordyn Williams – 4 Bronze Age group medals
Jesse Reynolds – 2 Gold, 5 Silver and a Bronze
Bradlee Ashby- 8 Gold, 5 Silver Open Medals and a NZ record.
Many thanks to our Head Coach Ken for his ongoing support of all our swimmers. And to Jane and Maree who gave their time to Team Manage our team for the week.
