Tocumwal’s Sascha Jones has just returned from the NSW All School Swimming Championships, winning a gold medal in the 14-year 50m backstroke event with a personal best time of 31.64 seconds.
This swim has now qualified her to swim at the Pacific School Games in Adelaide in December.
Jones’ results during the past few months have ranked her eighth in Australia for the 12-13 year-old 100m backstroke at the Georgina Hope Foundation Australian Age Championships in Brisbane in April.
This swim has secured her a place to train on the national development squad in September.
Earlier in the year Jones won a silver medal at the Victorian Country Championships in Sale and a bronze medal at the Victorian Sprint Championships in Melbourne for the 100m backstroke and a silver medal at the Victorian All Junior Competition in the 50m freestyle.
Her dedication and commitment has shone through to receive these outstanding results.
