NSW SC State Championships 2018

Abbotsleigh had 33 swimmers compete at the NSW State Championships over the past few weeks. Team ABB took to the meet with composure and maturity that we were able to see come out in their performances. The positive energy that was displayed lead to impressive swimming. The growth and learning that occurred over the short course season that gave rise to some outstanding performances in the pool.

Coaches would like to celebrate the efforts of the following athletes, who put themselves in a great position to extend and expand themselves in the lead up to State Championships. All girls accepted challenges and went beyond what they had done before in training, where all the preparation occurs for the racing arena. They all left behind what was familiar and experienced what was previously unknown.
