Brittany Johnson was awarded the Champion of Champions Award for the third year in a row at our Annual Presentation Evening earlier tonight. The award is presented to the best all round swimmer, taking into account performances both at club and representative meets.
Brittany is a deserved winner, winning both her Age and Open Championships, placing second in the Female Graded Pointscore, setting 11 club records and representing the club at the Cumberland, Metropolitan and State Age Championships.

Greg Stanford, was awarded the Michael Rossek Trophy for the highest placed Junior Boy in the Graded Races Pointscore while Amber Johnson received the Ronald Exley Trophy for the highest placed Junior Girl. This year was the fourth time that Amber has won the Female Pointscore in the last 5 years and she now becomes the most successful Female Graded Pointscore Swimmer in the club's history.

The Jack Smart Encouragement Award was presented to Stephanie Ibrahim, who steadily improved over the season, both at club and at training, progressing from 25m to 50m in different strokes.

Relay Competition was won by a newly formed team at their first attempt. The "Swimmers" in the end easily saw off late challenges by the Merrylands Mermaids and Reel Big Fish to win their first title.

Glen Stanford took out the Senior Handicap for the second year running while in our Winter Season Peter Johnston and Glenda Wood won the male and female Graded Pointscore competitions.

Learn to Swim instructors were recognised again this year for their efforts over the season. Our Austswim qualified instructors were presented with an Instructor's hat to thank them for their work running the program and for training our new instructors.

Four awards were presented to members of Merrylands Swimming Squad for their efforts at Swimming Training throughout the season. All four swimmers were first time recipients of the Coach's Awards with Nikhil Naidu, Kristi Stephens, Mitchell Burt and Anthony Ventra all taking home a club beanie.

The night was very enjoyable and those people that stayed after the presentation had a good time joining in the fun.

Thank you to all the people who helped organise the presentation and who helped throughout the season.

You can find the season results in the Club Races section and the full list of other awards presented on the night in the Presentation section.
