MacLean High School swimmers headed Clarence Valley performers at the CHS Swimming Championships in Sydney this week.
Riley Elvery was the star of the team making two finals ? the 12-year boys 50m freestyle (10th) and 12-year boys 100m freestyle (8th).
He was also 11th fastest in the 12-year boys 200m freestyle.
Kimberly Saunders finished 16th in the 14-year girls 50m freestyle and Kira Halverson 18th in the 16-year girls 50m freestyle.
The boys 13-year 4 x 50m freestyle relay team finished 12th, the boys 14-year 4 x 50m freestyle relay team finished 6th in the final and the girls 16-year 4 x 50m freestyle relay qualified 8th and finished a very creditable 5th in the final.
South Grafton High star Brook Walters was ill when competing and withdrew from the 100m freestyle but still managed to contest four events ? 17-19-year 100m butterfly, 50m freestyle, 200m freestyle and 100m backstroke.
Walters finished 17th fastest in most events.
Grafton High's 17-year boys 4 x 50m freestyle relay team ? Jacob Lollback, Andrew Lollback, Scott Butcher and Josh Salkeld ? qualified for the final finishing 8th.
