Cannons take aim at state titles
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.
