Drummoyne Swim Club kids have been busy at school and representative carnivals over the last month. This is a summary of some of the great results they achieved.
All Hallows Five Dock
Isaac McManus and Fletcher Williams cleaned up at the All Hallows swimming carnival. They took out 1st or 2nd place between them in every event. Great work boys!
St Mark’s Drummoyne
The Romaniuk kiddies lead the way at St Mark’s with Georgie and Esther putting in strong performances. Georgia qualified for the 50m Freestyle and 50m Freestyle Relay at Zone. She then proceeded on to the Regional Carnival and did a PB.
Esther, not to be outdone by her younger sister qualified for zone in 100m Freestyle, 200m IM, 50m breaststroke, 50m backstroke, 50m Butterfly (take a breath) and the freestyle relay. She then swum her way to regionals for the 50m and 100m Freestyle, the 50m breaststroke and the 50m Butterfly plus the relay. Esther made her way to the State trials for 50m Freestyle and 50m Breaststroke and swum PBs in those events.
Drummoyne Public School
Across the road at Drummoyne Public School Abigail Kerr took out the Junior Girls title at the school carnival and won her 50m Freestyle event at the zone carnival. Moving on to regionals Abi swum another PB and came home all smiles.
The Howard boys did their best shark impersonations with Will coming in second in the 8years 50m Freestyle and heading off to Zone for that event. Big brother Hayden was the Junior Boys Champion and at both the school and zone carnivals and made it to Regionals in the 50m freestyle.
Sydney Secondary College – Balmain
Jaxon Lewis continued in his father’s large footsteps and took out the breaststroke race at Sydney Secondary College and went on to compete at zone.
At Rosebank, Lily Borozan beat all comers in her age group to be age champion. Lily went on to win 3 individual events and the relay at the SCC carnival and competed at the NSWCCC (Combined Catholic Colleges) carnival in 5 events.
St Mary’s Cathedral School
Club Captain Tadhg Donnellan flew the club’s colours at St Mary’s and qualifies for the CCC representative carnival in both the 4 x 50m freestyle relay and 4 x 50m IM relay.
On another note, Tadhg also recently finished 6th at the Huskisson Super Sprint triathlon.
Russell Lea Public School
Russell Lea ventured to Sydney University this year for their swimming carnival. Held indoors, a last minute relaxing of COVID restrictions meant a limited number of parent volunteers could attend. Needless to say, but the school office now knows, there is a high level of parent interest, particularly from those who attend DSC on any given Saturday.
It was great to see almost 30 students students with Drummoyne Swim Club experience get in the pool and swim with such confidence and inner belief that has grown from their weekly squad training and Saturday morning club events.
From the successful school carnival there were 23 students representing Russell Lea at the Western Suburbs PSSA held at Auburn Aquatic centre. A record number of representatives and the strongest performance in the schools short swimming carnival history.
Achieving 2nd place as a School in the proportional point score – with many top 15 places and individual success for Skye Lewis who won the U8’s 50m Freestyle (by a massive 2.2secs!) and Russell Lea’s first ever successful Senior Girls relay led by Jessica Bell, Charlotte & Elizabeth Allan and Willow Meares (who promises to come to DSC next summer) taking first place. Both Skye and the relay team were fortunate enough to compete at regionals the following week at Homebush Aquatic centre coming in 19th, and 9th overall.
