On the 27th and 28th March, our Junior team and raced at Junior State championships. The weekend was full of good energy and team spirit. Our athletes raised the standard when racing against the best of the state they showed what Team ABB is made of. Our values Kaizen, Dare Greatly, Unity and Fun were present and the smiles in everyone’s face was noticeable.
When it was time to race each swimmer focused on their race specifics and brought their best performance. The Abbotsleigh coaches could not be happier of how Junior State went, not only in the results point of view but also on the growth that the athletes are showing race after race. This growth is part of our Abbotsleigh values (kaizen – Continues improvement) and we love to see our athletes being able to be themselves and progress meet after meet in a safe and inclusive team environment.
We would like to say thank you to all parents that were able to represent the team and bring the swimmers for the 10×50 girls relay. It was an exciting moment, and it would not have been possible if it were not for all of you working together to get everyone there.
Our boys Medley relay was also an amazing moment where they boys came close to that medal place, finishing an awesome 4th place with the best fighting attitude throughout the race.
Below you can have a look at some of the awesome photos of the day and our Top ten results, a special mention to Leisel Tan and Marcus Primdal that were able to achieve their first Junior State Championship Medal.
