CENTRAL Aquatic and Lifesaving Club in Bayswater is eyeing a first-place finish at the conclusion of the Westpac Summer League series on the weekend.

The series is comprised of three meets where six swimming clubs from the north-metro region compete against each other.

Central Aquatic came fifth in the first carnival at Craigie and finished first in the second, held at their home pool, Bayswater Waves.

President Perry de Lacy said the club achieved good success so far, especially at the second carnival on October 29.

“We had close to 100 swimmers swimming, good crowds and the carnival was run beautifully and everyone contributed,” he said.

Mr de Lacy said there were some stunning results from the club’s rising stars.

“Jackson (de Lacy) won the 50m breaststroke quite comfortably with a good time of about 32.15 seconds considering it was an outside pool,” he said.

“Adrian Rogers and Jacob Darle won the 100m freestyle and 100m butterfly quite easily.”

He said swimmers were prepared to win the entire series at the final carnival.

“I could not be happier with all those who competed and hope over the coming years we will see this series growing with Olympians coming out of the series,” he said.
