Swimming | NSW Senior Metropolitan Championships

SOPAC | Saturday, 27 and Sunday, 28 February, 2021

Trinity Grammar School was represented by 18 students in the NSW Senior Metropolitan Swimming Championships, held on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 February 2021 at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre, Homebush Sydney.

The NSW Senior Metropolitan Championships was the final meet for our senior swimmers before CAS, and it was a crucial opportunity for the boys to hone their skills before the “Big Dance”. Our swimmers’ performances from the weekend produced a well-deserved 4th place in both overall Point Score (1,702) and Medal Tally (6 gold, 3 Silver, 6 Bronze).

Hayden Hoang (9Ta)

Staying true to what he has done in the past. Hayden entered the Metros with the largest individual programme in the team. He raced in nine individual events, medalling in four. Backstroke is where Hayden shines, showing great skill underwater and blistering speed. Winning Gold in both the 13-14 Years 200 Backstroke (2:11.50) and 13-14 Years 100 Backstroke (59.27), he set a new NSW Metropolitan Championship record.

Caleb Dryer (12Sc)

Remarkably, Caleb set a new 16 years 800 Free NSW Metropolitan Championship record with his 800m split in the 1500 Free with a time of (8:29.05), beating the previous record from 2018 by nine seconds. Caleb has been on song since NSW Senior State Championships in December 2020, winning gold in the 16 years 400 Freestyle (4:04.42) and 16 years 100 Fly 57.99. He has his sights set on continuing these outstanding performances next week at the 90th CAS Swimming Championships and the Australian Age Swimming Championships in April.

Jason Yeou (12We)

The CAS Swimming Team Vice Captain had a productive weekend, reaching personal bests in all events swum and winning gold in two, the 16 years 200 Free (1:56.27) and 16 Years 200 IM (2:11.51). He is showing he is ready to lead the team at next week’s CAS Swimming Championships.

16 Years 400 Free Trifecta

In a parting shot, Caleb Dryer (12Sc) Jason Yeou (12We) Gabriel Wilczak (11Ar) completed a Trinity Grammar School trifecta in the 16 Years 400 Free.
