Report by Caroline Makin, Club Captain
For the second ACT Interclub Meet in 2015, it was Molonglo Water Dragon’s turn to host at Gunghalin Leisure Centre in Canberra on Sunday, 14 June 2015.
Molonglo Water Dragons put out a solid team of up 14 swimmers to measure up against 22 Vikings. It was nice to see two swimmers from Ginninderra also rolling up to participate.
Swimmers were able to swim up to four events from a choice of a 200m swim, 4x50m swims and a 400m swim in long course 50m format.
The afternoon brought some nice swimming to watch and some good times recorded. The relays held prior to the final 400m event saw the teams displaying camaraderie and rivalry in the marshalling area and behind the blocks.
The social event was well supported and it was good to see so many Vikings dining alongside the Molonglo crew at the Raiders Club after the meet.
Thanks to those swimmers, family members and friends who came along to help with timekeeping and official duties on the day – without your support it is difficult to run our local meets!

|Women Team Scores|
