A mixture of new and well known names took home awards from our Annual Presentation Evening held on Saturday.

For the first time, Mitchell Burt was awarded the Michael Rossek Trophy as the highest placed Junior Boy in the Graded Races Pointscore while Amber Johnson received the Ronald Exley Trophy for the highest placed Junior Girl for the fifth time.

Taysha Wilson was presented with The Jack Smart Encouragement Award after steadily improving over the season and the Relay Competition title was successfully defended by the "Swimmers" (Dylan Baker, Anthony Ventra, David Wang, Nathan Legge, Mitchell Burt) after easily winning their second title.

Peter Johnston won the Senior Handicap for a record equalling sixth year while in our Winter Season Anthony Ventra and Belinda Sloane won the male and female Graded Pointscore competitions - both their first competition wins. Anthony Ventra also took home the Lions Club Award for Clubmanship.

In one of the closest ever finishes to the Champion of Champions Competition, Brittany Johnson finished just 15 points ahead of Peter Johnston to win the competition for the fourth time.

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.

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 Angela Guaricci, Belinda Sloane, David Wang and Dylan Baker all taking home a club beanie.

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

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.
