The Ocean Shores Aquatics team have returned home with some great results after a month long stint at various State School Swimming competitions.
‘They have all performed well, while enjoying the experience immensely,’ coach Adrian Filipic said.
‘Every swimmer was inspired and challenged to swim their best to establish a ranking amongst the states finest’.
The primary school swimmers, most of them on debut, produced some great personal bests, with the chart toppers being Mali Stewart, Teo Martin and Jack Matkevich.
The Byron Bay junior girls relay team excelled with the combination of Delilah Warton, Andie Gilbert, Lily Purtell and Henly Smitth together dropping over nine seconds from their time to finish fifth in the final.
The secondary school swimmers showed that there is no substitute for experience as most secured top ten placings to make finals.
Lawson King had a debut in the Boys 11yrs 50m backstroke and swam his best, as did Ivy Gilbert, Phoebe Pockley and Zara Morris in their respective relays.
