Somerset Swim Club had 13 swimmers represent Queensland at the recent Pan Pacific School Games in Adelaide. This is an outstanding representation for Somerset at such an elite level.
Team members who swam and achieved personal best times were: Max Indriawan, Leon Shirayama, Sebastian Du Preez, Brooke Otto and Olivia Collins. All of these swimmers finished in the top 10 in their main events, with Leon, Sebastian, Brooke and Olivia very close to winning medals.
Somerset’s medal winners were:
Our outstanding performer was Jorja Otto in the 10 Years Girls events, winning 5 events - 50m and 100m Butterfly, 50m and 100m Backstroke, 4 x 50m Medley Relay. Jorja also placed second in the 4 x 100 Medley Relay and won bronze in the 4 x 50m Freestyle Relay. Along the way, Jorja broke 4 National School records (50m Butterfly twice, 100m Butterfly and the 4 x 50m Medley Relay) and was then awarded female Junior Swimmer of the Meet. An outstanding performance by just one swimmer. Well done swimmers and the Club’s elite coaches Graeme McDonald and Ashely Callus in preparing the swimmers for the meet and these outstanding results.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
