Youngsters make big splash at interclub meet

THE Maclean Manta Rays welcomed the Yamba Orcas to the Maclean Olympic Swimming Pool for their inaugural interclub swimming competition last Friday night.

The night was run like a swimming carnival with boys and girls being marshalled into their age groups for 50m freestyle and 50m backstroke.

There were swimmers representing each age group from five to 14 years, along with a handful of seniors who opened the night with a 200m freestyle event.

Parents from both clubs jumped into the various roles needing to be filled to make sure the night ran smoothly and the children embraced the essence of a friendly club competition and demonstrated great sportsmanship.

Many children from both clubs claimed personal best times with some standout performances by Sienna and Gus Gilbert, and Leilani Reed from Yamba and Montanna Dobin from Maclean.

The highlight of the night was the Yamba versus Maclean relay, in which Yamba took out the top honours, followed by a ribbon presentation for place-getters.

Each first place time was recorded and set as the record to be beaten at our next event.

This event brought different members of the community together for fun, fitness and friendship and both clubs are looking forward to their next meeting some time this month.
