A NUMBER of young stars made a big splash at the NSW Primary Schools Sports Association Swimming Championships last week.
Competing against many larger metropolitan schools, the Riverina team, comprised of student from Albury and Lavington schools, had an impressive showing, with a number of podium finishes.
A monster effort from hearing-impaired Lavington Primary student Brooke King saw her finish second in the 50m freestyle and third in the backstroke before breaking through for gold in the 50m backstroke.
Lavington’s Luke Jobbins and South Wagga’s Meg Senior both claimed bronze medals in their freestyle events, while the senior girls relay team from Albury claimed silver.
Team manager Emma Wilson, from Springdale Heights Primary School, said it was the most finalists and medallists the Riverina had ever had.
“It was a great showing from the kids who went along, and I’m sure it’ll encourage plenty of other students from across Albury-Wodonga to so their best and improve on it,” Wilson said.
