Ipswich team masters of pool

IPSWICH City Masters swimmers teamed up to win the aggregate trophy and set a state record at the recent interclub meeting at Ipswich Grammar School pool.

The Ipswich men's 4x100m medley relay team that set a new standard was Graeme William, John Reugebrink, Jon Patterson and Tim Cahill.

The team, with a total age of 239 years, beat the previous masters' record in that age category by 10 seconds.

That was one of four state records and one national record achieved on the day.

Competitors from 15 clubs were represented, coming from as far away as Bundaberg.

"A good standard of swimming was on show, especially in long-distance events," carnival organiser Clive Griffin said.

"The event was an enjoyable one and we had positive feedback from competitors from other clubs."

It was the first interclub meet in seven years hosted by the Ipswich City Masters Swimming Club.

The event was sponsored by Ipswich City Council.
