Can­nons take aim at state ti­tles

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THE Can­non­vale Can­nons will travel to Bris­bane to con­test the Queens­land State Short Course Cham­pi­onships this week­end.

Emma Ho­gan, An­gus Men­zies and Ivan Van Zyl have been se­lected as mem­bers of the level three devel­op­ment squad, which is the high­est level in far North Queens­land.

Be­ing se­lected as part of the squad gives them the op­por- tu­nity to per­form along­side and so­cialise with other swim­mers at their level in prepa­ra­tion to achieve higher lev­els.

Train­ing mates Jack­man Ro­manella and Dy­lan Bar­beler, who have just been named as part of the level two squad, will com­pete in three swims against Queens­land’s best 10year-olds.

The boys are a good ex­am­ple of team sports­man­ship, con­stantly en­cour­ag­ing each other to do their ab­so­lute best in and out of the pool.

This is the first state meet for Hay­den Ro­manella.

Hay­den swims in the S14 class cat­e­gory, the same as Com­mon­wealth Games gold medal­list Daniel Fox. Hay­den is ex­cited to rep­re­sent his club and swim his heart out in Bris­bane.
