Medal haul for swimmers

A team from the St Peter’s Swimming Club won 36 medals in Australia.

A team of 24 young swimmers from the St Peter’s Swimming Club have returned from the South Australian Swim Champs with a haul of 36 medals – including 11 gold, 13 silver and 12 bronze.

“They did really well and came away with some good medals,” team coach Aly Fitch said.

During a five-day meet several of the swimmers recorded personal-best times, and club swimmers Rylee Britton, Hunter Read, Katelyn Flynn, Minnie Glover, Shay Dixon and Danielle Joblin were all multiple-medal winners.

“It was a fun experience and I would love to do it again,” said Danielle, who earned gold in the 50m freestyle final and silver in the hundred metre freestyle.

“We all supported each other very well, and that just helped us all get through the week.”

Shay Dixon secured two golds for himself – in the 200m fly and the 1500m freestyle, as well as silver for the 400m freestyle and bronze for the 200m backstroke.

Katelyn Flynn wasn’t expecting to earn a medal but came home with three  – two golds for the 100 and 50m fly, and bronze for the 50m backstroke.
