Records smashed at swim sports

JOSH Wight set new records at Leongatha Secondary College’s House Swimming Sports on Friday.
Swimming in the U14 age group, Josh broke the 50m breaststroke record with 36.47 (old record 39.44, held by Thomas Bouquet), the 50m butterfly record with 29.66 (old record 31.67, held by Lachlan Harms), and the 50m backstroke record with 33.06 (old record 37.15, held by Jack Dunn).
Josh formerly swam with the Leongatha Sharks for four years, and has been swimming with the South Gippsland Bass Swimming Club for the past two years.
Josh was pleased with the results on the day, having swum some unofficial personal bests.
Josh will be looking to take his swimming further in the next few years, hoping to one day bring home a national title.
Mittyak took out the house shield this year with a massive 434 points.
Mundara came in second with 336, Joatoba third with 290 and Kindyerra fourth with 233.
