Grammar swimmers make a splash at Queensland Swimming Championships

Sunshine Coast Grammar Swimming Club athletes competed with passion and pride at the Queensland Swimming Championships in Brisbane, finishing in fifth place overall in the Champion Club point score out of 170 Clubs.

Sunshine Coast Grammar Swimming Club continues to show its strength and dominance in the pool and is proud to be one of the top swimming schools having the highest-placed club score north of Brisbane.

Stepping up to compete against the best swimmers in the country, the 78-member strong team competed with integrity and grit and took home 21 Gold, 14 Silver, and 13 Bronze and made an impressive 70 finals.

The Club has been under the direction of Head Coach, Luke Stafford who has guided athletes to medal-winning performances in regional, state, and national championships since its inaugural 2017/2018 season.   

“It’s not easy to qualify for these events, let alone win a medal. These swimmers are 100% dedicated to our sport and it’s extremely satisfying to see them reaping the rewards.”

“Our swimmers are always preparing. Most of our athletes train up to 25 hours per week in the pool and the gym. It’s a massive responsibility and I am so proud of each of them for showing up every day with pride and purpose”, said Mr Stafford.

35 Sunshine Coast Grammar School students were among the team representing the Club at the Championships and finished strongly in both the relays and individual races, taking home 6 Gold, 6 Silver, and 7 Bronze medals.
