In December 2019, the Swimming State Titles for all Swim Clubs were held in Brisbane. The Somerset Swim Club had nearly forty swimmers compete individually across the weeklong event with additional swimmers competing in the Club Relay events to start the week’s competition.

The Club had some fantastic results on the first day with relay gold going to the girls 12 and under 4 x 50m ‘A’ Freestyle relay consisting of Bessie Dear, Ava Usher, Milly Derbyshire and Gisele Howard. Moreover, the girls 12 and under ‘A’ relay team won silver in the medley relay while the girls 10 and under medley relay team were third in their event.

Following a very successful day of Relays on the Saturday, Somerset finished the week with more than half of the swimmers finishing in the top 10 for their age in at least one event.

A special congratulations to our medal winners in their individual events:

  • Bessie Dear (12 years) - Gold in 100m Freestyle, Silver in both the 50m Freestyle and 100m Breaststroke
  • Ethan McCullough (12 years) - Silver in the 400m Individual Medley
  • Andrew Parkinson (Open) - Silver in the 100m MC Backstroke

Somerset student Jorja Otto won gold in the girls 14 years 100m Backstroke.

Well done to swimmers, families and coaches on a great week of swimming and their results.
