Gatton swimmers compete at state titles

SWIMMING: The 2018 Ronald McDonald House Charities Queensland Sprint Championships were held at the Brisbane Aquatic Centre, welcoming clubs from all over the state to compete over two days in many different events.

The Gatton Swimming Club had 11 members, with three competing at their first state championships, make the qualifying times to gain entry to this meet in 39 events.

This is something to be extremely proud of as the swimmers work very hard over many months chasing the times in order to be involved.

Congratulations goes to the swimmers who all put in an amazing effort over these many events.

A special mention goes to Aiden Van Ee for making it into the finals of the 50m backstroke.

Aiden swam his heart out coming away with 10th overall in the state, congratulations.

We also had Caitlin Nolan, Mitchell Toohey, Caleb Weier, and Savannah Welbourn achieve top 20 rankings in the state.

New personal best times were set by the team and many also dropped their seeded state rankings.

Well Done Lily Clarke, Harley Coffin, Alexandra Dennehy, Shanay Jasch, Ben Mills, Ashlea Nolan, Caitlin Nolan, Mitchell Toohey, Aiden Van Ee, Caleb Weier, Savannah Welbourn.
