Bathurst swimmers impress at Cowra

PERSONAL bests and podium finishes abounded for members of the Bathurst City Amateur Swim Club when they attended the 2016 Cowra Annual Qualifying Meet.

Competing against some of the best swimmers in the region, not only did 11 members of the Bathurst club pick up wins, but between them they registered 22 victories.

Adding to that, the contingent of 18 swimmers also notched up 38 podiums across the age groups.

“We had very strong finishes across most age groups with many of our swimmers placing in the top three, and nearly all swimmers achieving time improvements in many of their events,” publicity officer Meredith Caddis said.
