Eight members of the 2016 state team from Albury Amateur Swim Club have been selected for the Victorian Age Championships in Melbourne.
The coveted event will be held at the Melbourne Swimming and Aquatic Centre from December 10 to 16.
Natalie Gibbons, Mackenzy Muller, Patrick Richardson, Eloise Phegan, Matthew Lade, Emily Wills, Bailey Clemson and Olivia McCaig make up the squad heading to the championships.
The committed and dedicated swimmers, who have been training six sessions a week since last June, have achieved state level qualifying times.
“They are the most promising group of swimmers the club has sent to Melbourne for quite a while,” Albury head swim coach Wayne Gould said.
“I’m very pleased with their discipline, work ethic and fitness level. They will all be very competitive.”
All swimmers will receive their state jackets during a special presentation at the Albury Swim Club rooms on December 5.
