A huge congratulations to our very passionate, dedicated and fabulous intermediate coach, Dean Boxall, named as Australian Aged Coach of the Year at the annual Australian Swimmer of the Year Awards - we are all proud of you Dean! Results from his squad at the recent State Titles reflect his hard work and passion - 31 swimmers in total, 25 swimmers made finals, 16 swimmers medalled - total of 16 gold, 14 silver and 15 bronze - couldn't have done it without you Dean - thanks!! A further 5 swimmers from the junior squad, and 4 from the senior squad increases our medal tally by another 9. Thanks to all the parents and coaches for their dedication to the week.
