NSW BPS Round 8 Campbelltown Meet — 22 August 2010

Meet report from Ian Hampton

Swimmer TrophyOur team of nine Vikings had a pretty damn good day after taking an early start up the road to the outskirts of Sydney to take part in the NSW Campbelltown BPS Meet on Sunday 22 August. We finished fourth overall with 363 points behind Campbelltown 592 points, Blacktown and Oak Flats.

Individually we achieved the following:

Atsuko McGowan — equal first in age group with three first places and one second place.  I think we all love watching Atsuko (water dancer) swim Backstroke — great swim over 100m in 1:18.17, considering that first 50 was maybe a bit quick at around 36.8s.

Annette Britten — second in age group with three first places and one second including a good swim over 100m Butterfly in 1:35.91.

Caroline Makin — equal second in the same age group as Annette; also with three first places and one second.  Nice 100m Freestyle in 1:16.17.

Ann Reid — a first place, also second, third and fourth places. Nice strong 400m Freestyle in 06:11.87.

Liz Needham — a first place, two seconds and a third.  Nice quick 19.37s over 25m Backstroke.

Pam Munday — two first places and three second places.  A good gutsy 200m Butterfly in 3:43.63.

Jane Lindsay — two second places and two third places.  A perfect 25m Freestyle in 30.00s dead.

David Bale — a first, a second and two third places.  A nice 100m Individual Medley in 1:26.72 and maybe learnt a little bit about the value of doing a warm up BEFORE a 200m Individual Medley!!

Ian Hampton — third in age group with two firsts, a second and a fourth place. A strong 200m Breaststroke in 03:22.93.

First place for our Women’s 160+ Medley Relay Team of Atsuko, Pam, Annette and Liz in a pretty sharp 1:17.63 considering the in-the-water push-off starts from the exceptionally shallow, shallow end.

Fourth place for our Mixed 200+ Freestyle Relay Team of David, Ian, Jane and Ann in a slightly less sharp 1:19.21 — but the points all count …

It is a pretty easy drive to Campbelltown and back, and we car pooled which made it an overall nice day and less pressure on the drivers.  Club captain sort of slept in back seat on way home with Liz (driving) and Atsuko (co-driver and front seat passenger) …don’t think they stopped talking for longer than 15 seconds — amazing …
