This year's Presentation Evening, held on the 19th May 2001, saw Robert Griffey take out the Champion of Champions Competition for the second year running.

The Champion of Champions Award is presented to the club member who is the best all round performer in that season. It takes into account performances both at club and at representative meets. Robert was a clear winner, breaking 10 Championship records on his way to victory in both the 16yrs and Open Championships. He also won a medal at the District Championships in the 100m Freestyle and represented the club at State and Metropolitan Championships.

In the Graded Pointscore Nathan Cause was presented with the Michael Rossek Trophy for the highest placed Junior Boy and Smantha Anderson received the Ronald Exley Trophy for the highest placed Junior Girl. This was the first time either of these competitors had received the awards and they will be looking to hold on to them next season.

The evening also saw Team Johnston take home the Relay Competition Trophy for the 3rd year running. The competition was very close and will be even closer next year with a number of teams vowing to end Team Johnston's run at the top.

This year there was also the presentation of a new award, The Jack Smart Encouragement Award, which went to Ryan Doherty. This award was donated by Jack's daughters in his memory after he passed away last year. Ryan only joined the club this year and after his efforts both at club and at training was a deserved winner of the award in its inaugural year.

The night was very enjoyable and those people that stayed after the presentation had a good time joining in the activites. We hope to see more people stay after the presenation next year and join in the fun.
