I had the opportunity to attend this event with Six students from Years 7 and 8 and a number of parents. The competition was held at Aquanation in Ringwood. The girls who participated all did extremely well, often competing against athletes who were quite a lot taller and at times older than them. Helene Fleischer, Ella Will, Katinka Schmid and Keira Tait competed in a number of individual events. All swam extremely well and should be proud of their efforts. Keira had great success earning 2 Gold Medals and a Bronze in her events and will be continuing on to the State Titles. The freestyle and medley relay teams consisting of Ava Booth, Cora Davis, Katinka Schmid and Ella Will performed extremely well, being awarded Silver medals for each event. All in all, it was a very positive day, the girls were very encouraging and supportive of each other. It was also lovely to see the support from parents. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with a number of parents and students in this environment.
