Western Suburbs Weekly - - Driveway -

FOUR Hale School stu­dents rep­re­sented WA at a na­tional swimming com­pe­ti­tion last month.

Year 12 stu­dent Braga Ver­hage (17) and Year 10 stu­dents Ash­ton Brinkworth (15), Tom Cum­ming (15) and Ju­lian Bulich (15) were se­lected to com­pete in the State Short Course Cham­pi­onships in Can­berra from Septem­ber 25 to 27.

Braga Ver­hage cap­tained the team at the na­tional event.

Hale head swimming coach Chris Guard said he was proud of the boys’ achieve­ments.

“It was also great to see so many fan­tas­tic re­sults, and for the Hale boys to be se­lected to rep­re­sent Western Aus­tralia,” Mr Guard said.

Braga was one of the meet’s best per­form­ers, col­lect­ing four gold medals, in­clud­ing a new State Teams 50m but­ter­fly cham­pi­onship record of 23.47.

The Hale School Swim Team won the inau­gu­ral Tre­gonning Cup ear­lier this year.
