Fifteen swimmers from the Ocean Shores Aquatics Swim Team will represent the Far North Coast Division and their schools over the next month at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre.
To get this opportunity they had to knock out some of the regions toughest competitors from up to 220 different schools.
‘Their preparation was at times challenging and they all worked so hard hoping it would be rewarded on the day they needed to shine,’ coach Adrian Fillipic said.
‘And shine they did. As a team they accumulated some outstanding achievements that included three zone champions, five regional age champions, and one runner-up regional age champion.
Standouts include Tom Cheek, who broke eight Mullumbimby High School records, and Jack Matkevich (Byron Bay Primary School) was awarded the Perpetual Regional Shield for Most Outstanding Boy swimmer at the North Coast PSSA Regional Swimming Championships held at Coffs Harbour 3 March.
‘This was the eighth time a swimmer from our team has achieved this honour. I could not be more proud and wish them all the best in Sydney,’ Adrian said.
