The Dolphins Amateur Swimming Club held their annual carnival in what turned out to be rather wet conditions on Sunday 27th February. A total of 127 swimmers attended the meet with 76 swimmers competing from Dolphins along with 57 swimmers from nine other clubs including Blue Lake Y, Mountain Pool (Mt. Barker), Mallee, Keith, Murray Bridge, Mt Gambier and also far than Marion, Starplex and Clovercrest. Dolphins swimmers achieved an incredible total of 183 personal bests, including 11-year-old Olivia Excell, who slashed her 50m breaststroke time by 48.13 seconds. An abundance of medals were won. The Dash for Cash, which was renamed Krueger Memorial Dash for Cash, saw the six fastest male swimmers in the 50m freestyle event swim in a 50m freestyle race, Elijah Stratford of Mt. Gambier a won. The winner of the Krueger Memorial Dash for Cash was Hinako Holman of the Dolphins. The Dolphins club has worked hard to find sponsors over the year and has just taken delivery of three marquees which were used to provide shade on carnival day. They were also very fortunate to receive a $3,000 grant from the Office of Recreational Sports and Racing for new lane ropes. These will be a great addition to the club working towards continuous improvement and opportunity. This was the last big event of the season and a presentation evening will take place on Monday March 21st.
