K?cliff kids hot at winter meet



KINGSCLIFF swimmers scooped the pool at the Queensland short course winter state titles held in Brisbane last week.

A squad of nine swimmers, Open and aged, attended the meet bringing home a swag of 14 medals.

Fourteen-year-old Johnny Otton was the star of the Kingscliff campaign - striking gold in the 100m breast-stroke, silver in the 200m backstroke and 100m butterfly and bronze in the 50m freestyle.

Fifteen-year-olds Jessica Henshaw and Hayley White returned from the meet with some new trophies, with Jessica winning bronze in the 200m backstroke and silver in the 100m backstroke and Hayley taking bronze in the 100m back. Cameron Peters swam his way to bronze in the 50m 16-years freestyle.

The club's Open swimmers also excelled, with Abby Watts taking gold in the 200m breaststroke, Ethan Rolfe winning both the 100m and 200m backstroke, and Hayden Stoekle taking silver in the 100m backstroke.

Age swimmers Noah Outeridge and Tyler Pollack put in plenty of personal best times in a meet that surprised coach Leanne Speechley.

"The whole meet was quite a success," she said.

"Out of the 35 races we had 23 personal bests.

"The races that weren't personal bests were really really close no more than a second off their personal best."

She said the group had really only gone to the meet to gauge how their training was going at the moment.

Lea said judging from the performances at the titles, things were looking very good for the coming summer.
