(CNS): Camana Bay Aquatic Club (CBAC) recently celebrated the end of the 2015-16 swim year with an awards ceremony at the Arts and Recreation Centre of Cayman International School. At the gathering, the club gave special recognition to some of its swimmers for their outstanding achievements, including Sabine Ellison, who was honoured as CBAC’s Swimmer of the Year.

Ellison was a multiple gold medallist at the 2016 CARIFTA Games and set 15 CBAC team records (and one Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association record) in the process.

Isabela Watler and Ben Somerville came away with the Most Improved Swimmer Award for female and male, respectively. Both swimmers qualified for their first CARIFTA Games this year. Jackson Haywood-Crouch and Summer Phillips each took home a Team Spirit Award given to the swimmers who are always supporting their teammates.

Lauren Hew received the Coaches’ Excellence Award in her final year on island. To round out the team awards, Phin Ellison, Maria Westin, Tate Marr, Lila Higgo, Zhanna McDonald, Connor Macdonald, Carmella Ylagan, Audrey Weber and Avery Lambert all received the CBAC Achievement Award for their dedication and commitment to the club as well as their stellar results in the pool.

The awards banquet also served as a send-off to CBAC’s five swimmers who will be attending boarding school next year: Hew, Kali Pereira, Sammie Rowland, Emily Link and Eddie Weber.

CBAC will continue to run programming throughout the summer.
