Pacific School Games Swimming Success

Congratulations to Sarah Reimer (Year 6), Ava Woodfield (Year 8) and Rianna Webster (Year 10) who competed at the 2017 Pacific School Games (Adelaide) in December 2017 as part of the Queensland Team.

The Pacific School Games is an international school sport championship that has approximately 4000 school-aged students participating in 11 sports at the highest level.

Sarah swam a PB in the 50m Breaststroke heats, securing a place in the finals. In the finals, she placed 6th against some tough competition. Sarah was also part of the Queensland 11 years old 200m Medley Relay Team which finished in 7th place.

Ava swam a PB in the 100m Freestyle heats, securing a place in the finals. In the finals she produced another PB and finished 3rd. Ava was also part of the Queensland 12 years old 200m Freestyle Relay Team which finished 3rd. Ava collected two Bronze Medals at her first Pacific School Games.

Rianna swam in the 100m Freestyle heats finishing just outside the top 10 – another great individual result, considering the high level of competition.

It was a fantastic experience for Sarah, Ava, Rianna and their families, who also travelled to Adelaide to support them during the games.

Congratulations to Sarah, Ava, Rianna and the Queensland Team.
