To all the parents who came and supported our team, thank you. Thanks also for driving them to training and for being so encouraging of your children.
To Mrs Lilford, Mr Carter and Mrs Wilson who worked so hard on the pool deck. Without your help, the carnival would not have run so smoothly. To Todd Knox, for running the team during the day and keeping them motivated and focused throughout, huge thanks!
To Zach Anderson from Breakers Swimming, Simone Passera and Sonia and Todd Knox . Thank you for once again guiding our squad through their training sessions in the weeks leading up to the carnival. Sadly, we farewell Simone this year as Brady is in year six. I know that both Amanda Washer and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the hard work you have done for the OLGC swimming squads over so many years. It’s time to pass the baton on and I am on the lookout for a replacement coach, please let me know if you are interested!
Finally, to our wonderful team. You showed great endeavour, team spirit, sportsmanship and represented OLGC magnificently. Each one of you swam well and I am so proud of you all.
