Teens complete gruelling 20km swim
YEAR 10 students Jacob Fitzgerald and Kimberley Hince claimed age group honours at the inaugural Port to Pub swim from Leighton Beach to Rottnest Island on March 20.
Despite the wet and cold conditions, the 15-year-olds managed to complete the 20 kilometre swim in five hours and 39 minutes.
The feat was even more impressive for Fitzgerald considering he represented Emmanuel Catholic College at the Associated and Catholic Col- leges’ swimming carnival on March 19 and competed in the senior State Surf Life Saving Championships on March 21.
Fitzgerald also competed in the Rottnest Channel Swim with his family earlier this month.
