Top season for swimmers
THE Richmond Valley Swim Club has celebrated its 2011/12 season with a presentation night at which it acknowledged its young stars.
Where better for the presentation night than the Evans Head Aquatic Centre where swimmers enjoyed an inflatable obstacle course and a barbecue.
During the season the club competed in eight carnivals with between 10 and 14 swimmers each carnival.
They won 136 medals, broke personal best times and made improvements in every stroke.
The top swimmer of the year award went to the 10-year champion Caleb Yourell.
The swimmer of the year award was a new trophy judged on attendance, performance, training, sportsmanship, pride and dedication.
The club will host the Swimming NSW Winter Sprint Carnival on May 12.
The meet is a qualifier for the Swimming North Coast short course championships.
