Sporting Spotlight

Year 11 student Claire was busy over the summer competing at Victoria State Age Swimming Championships in December and the SA Open & Relay Championships through January. In Victoria, Claire won a silver medal in the 100m breaststroke and placed 4th in 200m breaststroke. In the SA state competition, Claire won Gold in the 4x50m Freestyle and 50m Breaststroke, and Silver in the 4x50m medley relay, 100m breaststroke and 4×100 medley relay.

These accomplishments ensure Claire is well-placed for another successful year in the pool and we look forward to sharing more of her athletic achievements. Claire and other competitive swimmers will represent SAC at the upcoming Secondary Swimming Championships in late February. Keep an eye on the newsletter for results.
