Excellent results at state titles

THE Clarence River Masters Swimming Club entered six members for events held at Banora Oasis Pool for the Queensland State Titles.

The six took home a total of 23 medals – a wonderful display of talent – showing what can be achieved with great coaching and dedication to training. Maclean Squad coach Bruce Johnston must be pleased to see all the hours he has given to the swimmers producing those results.

Results: Helmut Klein – outstanding results – gold in the 400m breaststroke, silver in 200m, 100m, 50m breaststroke, silver in 200m and 100m backstroke.

Jan Klein – consistent in all her events – was fourth in 400m, 200m, 100m, 50m breaststroke, 100m and 50m freestyle.

Alan Lawrence had a mixed bag, coming second in the 400m freestyle, third in 100m and 50m freestyle, sixth in the 200m freestyle and seventh in 100m and 50m breaststroke.

Jane Lawrence was third in 100m backstroke, fifth in 200m and 100m freestyle, sixth in 400m freestyle, eighth in 50m freestyle and ninth in 100m breastroke – in a competitive age group against some tough

Barry Serjeant – making a comeback to competition – was third for 100m freestyle, fourth in 200m freestyle, sixth in 50m freestyle and seventh in 50m breaststroke.

Last but not least, Tony Hayman again showed what it takes to become a National record holder. He was first in 200m, 100m, 50m breaststroke and second in 50m butterfly.

The team took home a silver and two bronze medals for the relay events.

Lynne Johnston, making a comeback after recent shoulder surgery, showed she is still a force to be reckoned with. She was second in 400m, 200m, 100m breaststroke, second in 200m freestyle and fourth in 50m breastroke with a gold medal for her relay.

Congratulations to everyone for an outstanding carnival.
