Australian Schools Swimming

Over the last week, Ella R, Claveria J-T and Tiare R have been swimming at the Australian Schools Swimming Titles, in Hobart. In an outstanding performance, all three girls swam exceptionally to each come away with at least one medal.

Tiare won Bronze Medal in the 12 Years Girls Backstroke, at her first national meet – which is a wonderful achievement. Claveria also had an outstanding meet, winning the 13 Years 50m and 100m Freestyle and taking fourth place in the 13/14 Years 200m Backstroke. She also claimed a Silver medal in the 13/14 Years Medley Relay.

Ella swam brilliantly throughout the meet to claim Gold medals in the 13/14 Years 50m Butterfly, 50m Breaststroke, 100m Butterfly and 200m Individual Medley. She also claimed a Silver medal in the 13/14 Years 100m Freestyle and Bronze Medals in the 14 Years 50m Freestyle and 13/14 Years Medley Relay.

These are exceptional performances by these girls; and are testament to the dedication they show at training. We could not be more proud of their achievements. Well done, ladies!
