Crocs rule in Cooloola school pool

THE Cooloola Crocs swimming club has just returned from a successful Cooloola secondary school swimming carnival with five members taking out age champion at the event.

Cooloola Crocs race secretary Brigitte Kenney said the club was proud of the effort put in by its swimmers.

“Out of the 10 age championship places up for grabs, five of them went to school students who happen to be members of the Cooloola Coast Crocs Swimming Club,” Kenney said.

“That’s an achievement in itself.

“To think, 50 per cent of the age champions for the Gympie and Districts area came from the Cooloola Coast area,” she said.

Rachel McFarlane – Girls 13 years (Gympie High School), Aimee Kreibke – Girls 14 Years (St Patrick’s College), Tori Ross – Girls 17 Years (Gympie High School), Jarrad Madgwick – Boys 13 Years (St Patrick’s College), and Beau-Daniel Kenney – Boys 16 Years (St Patrick’s College) were the age champions.

The race secretary congratulated Thomas Kenney who along with the age champions also made the Wide Bay representative team for the 2010 secondary schools team, and will be competing at the Secondary School State Championships at Chandler in Brisbane this weekend, starting today.

The group will join Croc team mates Kirsten Kenney and Brooke Carnellor, who will compete in the Primary Schools State Swimming Championships from Sunday until March 30 at Chandler. Inquiries contact Kenney on 54862262
