Metro South 7-10 Selection Trials and District Championships Meet Report
On Saturday 7 October, the St Catherine’s Aquatic Swim team attended the Metro South 7-10 Selection Trials and District Championships at MSAC.
Following the advice of having a good meal Saturday evening and enjoying a relaxing night in, the team arrived at MSAC organised and rearing to go.
I would like to congratulate Portia Gowrie (Year 4) whose outstanding efforts at this event will now see her progress through to Metro All Junior Semi Finals on Sunday 5 November. Portia will compete against the top 40 swimmers in her age group from all over Victoria.
I am very proud of our team and as coach, it is particularly satisfying to see the St Catherine’s Aquatic racing team growing in size, confidence and ability.
Mr Mark Cooper, Head Swim Coach
