Tuesday night once again saw a solid contingent of 50 competitors tackle the weekly aquathon series at the Goulburn Aquatic Centre. They were greeted with ideal conditions consisting of a light easterly breeze and a comfortable 24 degree temperature and many athletes used this to turn in season best times across all divisions.
The club welcomed new members Hunter Smith, Jemma Valentine and Rebecca Miles as well as Elders signing on and joining Goulburn Power Centre as a club sponsor. Some of the outstanding performers this week included Tom Skeffington who once again took the honours in the intermediate division over Mick Beard, this time by a mere 9 seconds courtesy of a scorching 16minute 4 km run leg. Stella McIntyre was outstanding in the novice race finishing almost 4 minutes ahead of the next place getter (male or female). Olivia Stutchbury returned a career best result in the long distance race, her time of 37.42 her first time under 38 minutes was good enough to beat all comers except Kurt Warn who once again claimed fastest time honours.
Some others to record season PBs this week were Stella McIntyre, Peter Tapp, Cody Poetsch, Alexander Skeffington, Tom Skeffington, Mick Beard, Grace Martin, Conrad Bullock, Nik Christen and 5 time club champion Kerry Baxter.
