Great Results across Pool Rescue and IRB Racing

Monday, July 24th, 2017

We’ll the last month has been extreme­ly busy for the Club, with State Cham­pi­onships for IRB Rac­ing, Pool Res­cue Juniors and Seniors and then last week the Aus­tralian Cham­pi­onships for IRB Rac­ing. It’s been a very hec­tic but sat­is­fy­ing month for the many results we have had for the Club.

In our Pool Res­cue we had a great Junior Team who com­pet­ed their hearts out to win a num­ber of medals for the Club. For many of junior com­peti­tors, it was their first state cham­pi­onships in this type of com­pe­ti­tion and it was great to see their smil­ing faces. Our Youth and Seniors com­pet­ed the next day. With our small team we still man­aged to medal in many of the events we com­pet­ed in, includ­ing a num­ber of state cham­pi­ons. Thanks to all involved includ­ing our Coach­es and Offi­cials and Vic­ki Ras­mussen who man­aged all our teams through­out the series and cham­pi­onships. Our rep­re­sen­ta­tion also goes beyond the State with Wes Gould com­pet­ing last week­end at the Queens­land Pool Res­cue Cham­pi­onships, win­ning a Bronze and Sil­ver medal. Josh Clarke will also be com­pet­ing at the Aus­tralian pool cham­pi­onships for Mul­laloo and the West­ern Suns in August.

Last week, we com­pet­ed at the Aus­tralian cham­pi­onships at Kingscliff in NSW. We had anoth­er great per­for­mance from the whole team amongst the best in Aus­tralia. With a young and devel­op­ing team they worked togeth­er to achieve some great results includ­ing a num­ber of semi-finals and two finals in the Mas­ters events. It’s been a great sea­sons effort from coach Cameron Rap­ley and team man­ag­er Lau­rie deMamiel and Julie Rap­ley as tour­ing coor­di­na­tor as well as the many par­ents and sup­port­ers who helped out all sea­son.

So, we now look for­ward to a bit of a break from com­pe­ti­tion until the sum­mer series begins. Train­ing in most areas are well under­way, so our com­peti­tors con­tin­ue to pre­pare for next sea­son.
