Warriors had blast at the Cooroy Swim Meet
by Bobbie-jo Parton, Head coach/instructor
Over the past three weeks the Rainbow Beach swim club, The Warriors, have been attending club nights and also went to their first away meet.
It is great to see new faces in the club, and returning previous members ready for a Personal Best season. It is free to join the swim club from the age of seven and under, with eight-year-olds half price.
This is a local event – no travel, just fun, and great time to get on board with meeting families in our community.
Last month, six Warriors attended The Cooroy Dolphins swim meet. Luxie-Leigh Findlater and brother Blake Findlater showing great PB’s, with Blake coming first in his backstroke heat.
He decided he better stop and have a look to see if he was winning, then kept on going as hard as he could, finishing last. He jumped out after his race and said “did you see that I was coming first?” – loved the spirit!
Mason Bignell pulled off great times showing vast improvement with Butterfly, and he also swam his first 100m individual medley (25m Butterfly, 25m Backstroke, 25m Breaststroke and 25m Freestyle) in an away meet – well done!
Jahli Parton swam 25m Breaststroke and Freestyle. On her dive, Jahli had lost her goggles, went back for them and still did a Personal Best time! Seth Parton also attended, swimming all four strokes and improving on times. His sister Kiki Parton received silver in Breaststroke and Butterfly.
All are welcome to come to our club nights on a Thursday 5pm to check it out and help with timekeeping or cooking the barbecue. See you there!
