After a torrid year, our club was able to field its biggest team ever at the Australian Swimming Championships.
Congratulations to the following swimmers who qualified: Baden Coxsedge, Robbe Dilissen, Dominique Hart, Caitlin Huell, Liam Laidlaw, Nicholas Layton, Will Middleton, Ray Oo, Thomas Pearson, Adam Selwood, Johann Stickland and Luka Zubcic. We also had Lushavel Stickland qualify and represent Samoa.
The team camaraderie was sensational, with swimmers supporting each other at all events. And while most swimmers achieved PBs and improvements in rankings, there were several standout performances.
There were 2 categories of events: Open (swimming against all ages) and specific age categories. Swimmers were required to elect which category they were aiming for prior to the relevant event.
The following were our finalists:

Dominique Hart - 7th 50FL (19/20 years)
Caitlin Huell - 6th 50FL (19/20 years)
Will Middleton - 4th 200IM (20/21 years)
Thomas Pearson - 8th 50BK (20/21 years), 10th 50BR (20/21 years)
