Head Coach Lee Bunker stated, "I am so proud of each and every member of both our A and B squads this year. For a comparatively small size swimming club with only around 100 swimming members starting as young as 6 yrs of age then all involved with the Club should be equally as proud of our achievements. These results are only possible due to the hard work and commitment of all involved at the Club. For so many of our swimmers and their parents to regularly give up their Saturday evenings to be so committed to the cause is simply outstanding. It is one thing in sport to strive to be the best in any level of competition but the harder thing to do once you are at the top of your sport is to stay at the top and we have now done this for 3 consecutive years in this particular competition."
