The Junior School State Swimming Titles were held from Sunday 26 to Tuesday 28 March in Brisbane at the Sleeman Aquatic Centre. Somerset had 11 swimmers from both the College and Swim Club competing in the Championships. It was great to see some of the swimmers compete at this exceptional level for the first time.
Another stand out performance came from Jorja Otto (12 years) who captained the winning South Coast Team at the Championships. Jorja’s results were exceptional in winning 5 events and breaking the 50m Backstroke record. Well done Jorja!
Somerset had two swimmers selected on the Queensland State Team to compete in Adelaide later this year in Jorja Otto and Max Allars. Both these swimmers won medals in the events listed below:
Jorja Otto (12 years) – 1st 200m IM, 1st 200m Backstroke, 1st 50m Butterfly, 1st 50m Backstroke (Record), 1st 100m Backstroke, and 3rd 100m Butterfly
Max Allars (10 years) – 2nd 100m Breaststroke and 2nd 50m Breaststroke
Somerset’s other swimmers who made the top ten and swam in the finals were:
Jaxson Brimble (11 years) – 7th 100m Breaststroke, 8th 50m Breaststroke
Bessie Dear (10 years) – 7th 50m Backstroke
There were seven other Somerset swimmers to compete at the championships for the South Coast Team. These were Gisele Howard (10 years), Clayton McIntrye (12 years), James Sneesby (11 years), Anthony Graham (10 years), Brodie Brown (12 years), Isabelle Sly (10 years) and Emily Fevrius (12 years).
