Pelicans win medals in State championships

The Ettalong Pelicans Masters Swim Club has won several medals at the recent Masters NSW State Championships which were held at the Peninsula Leisure Centre on October 12 and 13.

More than 200 Masters swimmers competed in the event.

The Pelicans entered an 11-person team.

Club captain Ms Marion Dreyer said members were keen to show visiting clubs what they could do while they had the home turf advantage.

"Dressed in our new long sleeve club tee shirts, we were all pumped and ready to achieve our personal goals.

"Our team won seven gold medals, 16 silvers and six bronze.

"Cameron Horn broke two state records and one of our relay teams won gold in the 4x50 Medley Relay, beating five other teams.

"To top off our great personal achievements, we won the Division 3 points score for the second year in a row.

"We were also presented with a trophy from the Long Distance State Championships, held last month at Knox Grammar School, as winners of Division 3 point score," Ms Dreyer said.

Ms Dreyer said the club hoped their recent success would help attract new members.

"We are currently recruiting for new members.

"If you like to swim, why not come and join us Thursday nights at Peninsula Leisure Centre from 7pm.

"We also do long distance swims on Monday afternoons.

"You don't have to be fast, just enjoy swimming.

"Our motto is fun, friendship and fitness," Ms Dreyer said.
