Merrylands will have 3 swimmers competing at the NSW Restricted Age Series Finals after some outstanding results at today’s Cumberland District Restricted Age Heats.

Etiuate Veamatahau (ET) won all 3 of his events and will represent the club in the 12yrs 50m Freestyle, 50m Backstroke and 50m Butterfly at the finals. David Wang, despite being sick, still managed to win the 8yrs & Under 50m Breaststroke, improving two places from last week’s Cumberland 5 to 8yrs Meet. Mitchell Emery will be our third swimmer at the finals after placing second in the 11yrs 50m Breaststroke. He improved on his third place at the Cumberland Championships to qualify for the Restricted Age Series Finals for the second time.

A number of other swimmers had some great swims including Ryan Doherty and Mitchell McFarlane. Ryan did huge PBs in all 3 of his events and placed 10th in the 8yrs & Under 50m Breaststroke swimming as a 7 year old. Mitchell also broke 3 of his entry times and placed 4th in the 11yrs 50m Freestyle.

Congratulations to all swimmers who broke their times and good luck to ET, David and Mitchell at the finals. The Restricted Age Series Finals will be held at Auburn Swimming Centre on Sunday, 17th March, 2002. The full results of the heats are now available.
