Swimmers set four All Schools records

Trinity swimmers broke four new championship records on their way to a 35-medal haul, including 11 golds, at the annual NSW All Schools meet at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre, with the divers also grabbing two gold.

Record-breaking performances came from Chris Montana (8He) in the 12-14 years 100m breaststroke, Sterling Tuxford (9WH) in the 12-14 years 200m butterfly, Jonathan Nam (11St) in the 15-16 years 100m breaststroke, and Grayson Doig (10He) in the 15-16 years 200m individual medley.

All of those swimmers were multiple medallists; Chris also won the 50m and 200m breaststroke in his age group, as did Jonathan, Sterling added two silvers and a bronze, and Grayson a silver.

Other gold medallists were Joshua Jeung in the 15 years 100m freestyle and Victor Strokin in the 15 years 50m and 200m backstroke.

Divers Lachlan Nguyen and Joshua Leverton completed a gold-silver sweep in the 17 years springboard, with Hamish Turner winning the 15 years event.

Trinity had 18 swimmers representing CIS and their swag of 11 gold, 15 silver and nine bronze medals pushed them up to second on the combined points score with 379, behind Knox Grammar (405) with PLC Sydney third on 375 points.

“The team’s exceptional achievements, including record-breaking performances and a remarkable medal tally, solidify their position as a powerhouse in the swimming community,” said Director of Swimming Ben Tuxford.

“This showcased their collective effort, determination, and talent, and sets a strong foundation for future success.

“With both senior and middle school representatives driving the team forward, Trinity Grammar is poised for an exciting 2024 CAS swimming campaign.”
