Four Melton Swimming Club members will compete at the School Sport Australia 10th Pacific School Games next month in Adelaide.

The four swimmers will compete for the Victorian team against swimmers from other states and territories, along with athletes from 14 other countries.

The Pacific Games will also double as the Australian School Championships.

Melton’s Sam Sutherland said the club was excited to see what the four swimmers could achieve on an international
stage.

Alisha Walters, Francine Cartina, Thomas Sutherland and Jack Morrow, will compete in a combined 28 events, 19 individual races and nine relays.

They are hoping to take home gold, but are also aiming to deliver personal bests.

Cartina, who goes to school at St George Preca School in Caroline Springs, has swum at a previous Australian Championships.

Walters, who attends Gilson College, said she was proud to put on the Victorian uniform for the first time and was looking forward to meeting people.

Sutherland, who goes to Sydenham-Hillside Primary School, said he felt it was a privilege to swim at the event and he was focusing on his preparation.

Morrow attends St Dominic’s School in Melton.

Meanwhile, 31 Melton swimmers competed at the Victorian Spring Championships at the weekend.

Karlos Nuestro won a gold medal in the 50-metre breaststroke in his age group and made another final.

Another nine swimmers made finals. Overall, the Melton swimmers swam 53 personal best times.
