Sunshine Coast Grammar Swimming Club continues to demonstrate their force in the pool as they retain their fourth consecutive title at the Sunshine Coast Grammar Swim Meet.
The 87 strong athletes competed with grit, taking home a haul of medals, including 35 Gold, 31 Silver and 31 Bronze, competing against over 530 athletes from up to 40 clubs within the Wide Bay Region and Brisbane.
The Club has successfully hosted the quality event for the last four years with the up-and-coming junior and multi-class swimming team also performing to a high standard against quality competition and placing second.
The highly anticipated long-course event is a pathway designed to offer a broad range of development opportunities for all swimmers. While times achieved at the Swim Meet can be used to advance to Regional and State Championships, the main aim of the event is to gain competition experience.
‘We always look forward to sharing our world-class facility with the region and giving all swimmers the opportunity to compete in a fast pool with quality competition,’ said Head Coach, Luke Stafford.
The Club houses a FINA-certified pool, which allows its athletes to train and compete at national and international levels.
‘Our Team performed exceptionally well with many athletes achieving PBs and qualifying times for the upcoming Nationals in April’.
The atmosphere was vibrant and filled with enthusiastic participants, and it was wonderful to bring the swimming community together and foster a sense of community spirit.
The annual Swim Meet would not be possible without the collective effort of volunteers and Sunshine Coast Grammar School parents and staff, as well as the visiting clubs, officials, coaches and generous sponsors and donators.
The Club will continue to focus on and train for the National Competition next month on the Gold Coast.
