Congratulations to Jake Ridley one of our Year 9 students who continues to excel in the pool. Jake recently competed in the School Sport Victoria (SSV) State Swimming Championships winning FIVE individual gold medals:

Boys 15 Years Breaststroke, 50m – 1st (32.74 secs)

Boys 15 Years Butterfly, 50m – 1st (27.22 secs)

In addition, Jake competed at the Swimming Australian National Age Championships in Adelaide during the summer school holidays. Over six days of competing, he raced in sixteen heats/finals across 8 events and achieved a Personal Best in all of them, something that is extremely hard to do at a national companionship. An outstanding achievement that he can be so proud of after all his hard work training and the dedication required to compete at this level successfully.
