Seven swimmers from the Kilmore Swimming Club attended the annual Victorian Country Championships at Kardinia Park Geelong over the Australia Day weekend. Kardinia Park has a fantastic aquatic facility for a meet like this; a ten lane FINA pool for competition and the old eight lane pool for warm up and cool down.
The Kilmore team consisted of Alesha McIntosh, Alexandra Roberts, madeleine Rhodes, Tamara Bess, James Boland, Dylan Cornish and Lynton Pyle were treated to a highly professional meet along with coaches Jennifer Lone and Noelene Pyle.
The weekend gave the Kilmore swimmers a chance to race against the best cometition country Victoria has to offer and for five of the seven Kilmore swimmers it was their first Countries meet. They all swan exceptionally well with most swimming personal bests or inside their qualifying times.
Alexandra Roberts made a great debut at the meet, her first Countries event, finishing seventh out of 22 and qualifying for her first country final.
