Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
