Swimming | NSW Speedo Sprint Series Finals

SOPAC Saturday, 6 March 2021

The 2021 NSW Speedo Sprint Series Finals were the heights of Junior sprint swimming in New South Wales, bringing together all the brightest state-wide talents to compete for their local area. Trinity Grammar School was well represented at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre with eight swimmers who competed with plenty of pride and passion.

It was a huge achievement for our swimmers, CJ Nguyen, Toby Ji, Sterling Tuxford, Austin Wu, Benny Chen, Leopold Vo, Maxwell Munday (JS) and Owen Hoang (PS), to all qualify for the finals and they were rewarded with the opportunity to test themselves against the best across New South Wales. Of the eight Trinity Grammar students who competed, two were rewarded with medals (two Bronze) for their efforts: Leopold Vo and Sterling Tuxford.

While all Trinity Grammar students competed excellently, it was Sterling Tuxford’s 50m Butterfly which was the highlight of the day, where he was able to break his own Trinity Grammar School Record, shaving another 0.37 off his time recorded in February, finishing with an astounding 30.10.

I would like to once again congratulate all the Trinity Grammar students who competed on the weekend, and look forward to the remainder of the Summer Swimming calendar.

Yours in Swimming,

Calum Timms | Coach of Swimming
