Junior swimmers from Cobram-Barooga Swimming Club are elated after making it through to the Victorian All Junior Swimming Championships in Melbourne on March 23.
Olivia McCamish, Emma Nolen, Gracie O’Sullivan, Lili Murphy, Liliana McCamish, Jack Kelly and Courtney Kelly all qualified for the Victorian All Junior Swimming Championships after putting in impressive performances at the qualifying event at Kyabram on Saturday.
The club’s publicity officer Penny McCamish said she was proud of the swimmers and was sure they would put in a great effort in Melbourne.
She said coach Catherine Kelly had put in much time to improve competitors’ technique.
‘‘We are a great little club with high team spirit and great sportsmanship. This is one of the biggest competitions of the year,’’ she said
‘‘There were about 150 kids at the qualifier at Kyabram, with swimmers from Shepparton, Benalla and Echuca.’’
Nine-year-old Olivia McCamish, of Cobram, said she was looking forward to competing in Melbourne.
‘‘My favourite (stroke) is the butterfly, because it’s the most fun,’’ she said.
‘‘I’m not nervous (about the other strokes), but I am about doing the butterfly because the pool in Melbourne is really long and I might run out of breath.
‘‘I’m just going to have fun, get in there and have a go.’’
Ten-year-old Gracie O’Sullivan said she was pleased to have made the junior state championships.
Gracie has been involved with the club for more than two years and said she had got much better at swimming and made some good friends.
The club has about 20 members ranging in age from eight to 17, and train every Monday and Tuesday nights.
