Wests ready for spring sprint

THERE’LL be a sprint to the finish line on Saturday, but no competitor’s feet will be touching the ground.

The Western Suburbs Swimming Club hosts its 24th annual Spring Sprint Meet at the John Dahl Pool.

Swimmers from across Central Queensland will be competing in the short course event which kicks off the start to the swimming season.

Wests have a record number of club members competing this year.

Club president Tiffany Ray was overwhelmed with the response from members.

“It’s so great to see so many swimmers and their parents supporting our club. We have a record 50 swimmers from Wests competing this year. It is going to be a great day,” Ms Ray said.

Head coach Adam Eiseman is looking forward to the day, and he hopes the club can take out the Highest Points Trophy.

“We have a real chance this year to win the trophy. This would give the kids a great confidence boost for the rest of the season,” he said.

The Spring Sprint kicks off at 8.30am tomorrow, and is sure to provide plenty of action for spectators, especially the Dash for Cash events.
