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.
