Neptune Meet 2015

posted Jun 3, 2015, 9:58 PM by Lucy Gulland

During Queen’s Birthday weekend we travelled to Dunedin to swim in the Neptune Meet at Moana Pool.  As our age group swimmers were just back in the water from NAGS it was a small team that travelled down to Dunedin.  It was a very busy weekend of racing but heaps of fun and really good racing with a huge number of personal bests gained and also a number of qualifying times met for events later in the season.

Gus Kelliher won all of his events after flying down on Saturday once his morning rugby game had finished.  He took out the overall age group prize for the 11-12 year old boys. Gus was also in the winning Adam and Eve relay with Alice Petrie from Oamaru. The top 8 boys and girls from each age grouping are chosen for this event and paired up.

James Buk was also selected for the Adam and Eve relay and paired up with Devon Familton from Neptune for second place.

Brigitte Mahan, WaiSwim head coach, said “the opportunity for all the swimmers to put into place the skills they have been working on at training is very important. As the weekend went on they improved immensely which was awesome to see.”
