Cannons Look Ahead To Club Championships

The Cannonvale Cannons are eagerly awaiting their 2023 Club Championships next Saturday to mark the official end of the local swim season.

Over 40 swimmers prepared this week by participating at the Cannons’ Club Night, surprising coaches with new personal bests.

Club official Jane Delac presented Zach Trefz and Connor Lee with the Chocolate Awards for best personal bests.

Club Upgrades were presented to Bianca Anderson, Zane Clayworth, Miller Eaves, Harry Crisp, and Jax Clayworth, and the Swim Star Award presented to Piper Walker.  

Highlights from Club Night included: Top performers by personal best were Charlie Doherty, Levi Smith, and Jax Clayworth.  

Thomas Ganter swam an excellent time of 3.08.65 in his 200-metre IM which was a massive 23.83 second personal best.

Declan Dichiera and Matilda Nicholes performed well in their respective 100-metre IMs, finishing close together. Declan swam a 3.88 second personal best and Matilda swam a 4.13 second personal best.  

Ava Hudson swam fantastic times in her Backstroke and Breaststroke races, while Lucas Korosec, six, smashed his 25-metre Butterfly and 50-metre Backstroke times.
