JETS swimming in medals

JETS Swim Club was one of 20 clubs which lined up at the recent Bathurst Qualifying Carnival.

JETS had 20 members compete in the carnival and brought home 34 medals and recorded countless personal bests.

The Bathurst meet was a chance for Orange club’s new members to experience their first competitive events.

Hannah and Noah King made great competitive debuts with Hannah winning gold in her 25m breaststroke event.

Fellow first-timer, Elliot Tom, swam a strong race in his 50m freestyle event.

Thomas Pell (gold), Dylan Crisp (silver) and Logan Whitely (bronze) made it a JETS clean sweep of the 50m breaststroke event.

Pell also went on to win silver in his 50m and 100m freestyle and backstroke events.

Masters swimmer Zoe Dowsett swam in the 50m, 100m, 200m and 400m open freestyle events and won a medal in each.

Jodie Simson has an outstanding record in Bathurst, contesting 10 events and winning gold in all but one.

Simson claimed bronze in the open 200m freestyle, behind teammate Dowsett.

Connor Bright won a silver medal in his 100m backstroke and bronze in the 50m freestyle and backstroke, as well as recording a few PBs.

Llara Milne swam PBs in her 50m and 100m breaststroke events to win bronze in both.

Emily Pell had a fantastic meet with the largest margin of personal improvement among the squad, followed closely by Imogen Bland.

Bland shaved off a whopping 11.08 seconds in her 100m freestyle time.

Others who showed great results and improvement included Amelia and Xavier Bland, Grace Bright, Matt Cole, Noah King, Cathy Marshall, Jack Sloane and Cooper Turner.

The results brought smiles to the coaches’ faces.

“The Bathurst carnival provided an excellent opportunity for swimmers to show off the speed and skills that they have been working so hard to develop,” coach Jason Crisp said.

“This was demonstrated in the results by the continual stream of PBs and medals that flowed into the JETS camp. The kids should be very proud of themselves.”
