Samford Shines at Brisbane Relay Championships

Thu - 4/02/16

On Sunday morning 31st January 2016, we sent a team of 24 swimmers to the Brisbane Relay Championships at Chandler to participate in freestyle, medley and mixed relay events.  Results from this event count towards points for the Brisbane Swimming Premiership.  All of the children put in fabulous swims; swimming their hearts out for the club and smashing their personal best times.  Of particular note was the girls 9 & 10 years team who finished in 8th place in the 4 x 50m freestyle relay out of 33 teams; beating home many A Grade clubs.  Out of the pool, the club participated in the traditional March Past, where clubs have the opportunity for 12 swimmers to march around the pool deck in club uniform with the club banner.  In a true display of team spirit, the Stingrays rose to the occasion with Sammy Stingray down on the pool deck strutting his stuff, and our support crew in the grandstand chanting, cheering and waving the club towels.  Much to the excitement of the whole team, Samford was awarded the trophy for the best presented team.  What a fantastic thrill!  Thank you again to all of the families who made the time and commitment to attend, and in particular those who gave up their entire weekend on both Saturday and Sunday to support the club.
