The Cooloola Coast Crocs Swimming Club Inc. has just held their third annual Swim Meet at the Tin Can Bay Swimming Pool on Saturday 2 February 2013 with huge success.
The Meet attracted nominations from 218 competitors from 18 clubs from throughout the Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast.
The day went extremely well with fantastic weather considering the events of the weekend before over the Australia Day long weekend and all clubs enjoyed a day of great racing and Cooloola Coast hospitality.
The Cooloola Coast Crocs younger members achieved some wonderful personal best swims with Jorja Ranuve and Laura Rooks competing for the fi rst time at a Swim Meet.
Nikki Reibel placed 8th in 50m freestyle with a 6 second personal best, 5 seconds in her 100IM and Hayley Carnellor also taking off 6 seconds in her 100IM and 4 seconds in her 50m freestyle.
Nemani Ranuve and Madalyn Reibel having competed before set a wonderful pace in their events.
Two of the clubs members achieved Age Champions Kirsten Kenney in Girls 14 years, winning 7 Gold medals on the day and Thomas Kenney in 15 Years & Over with 3 Gold and 2 silver and both swimmers also won the Dash for Cash events in their respective categories.
Paige Reibel won 2 silver and 3 bronze medals and Rachel McFarlane won 1 silver and 2 bronze medals and also placed 5th in the girls 13 Years & Over Dash for Cash.
The relays are always a popular drawcard to the Meet with 62 teams competing in the four relay events on the day.
Cooloola Coast Crocs came a very close second in both the Freestyle and Medley 12 Years & Over relay events – oh so close and placed 4th out of the 18 clubs in attendance on the day overall with the points score championship.
