Congratulations to Zara Paul (5R) who made the State Schools Victoria Swimming finals in April and represented Girton in backstroke and freestyle relay.

Zara was also amongst 7 other swimmers chosen to represent the Bendigo Hawks Aquatic Club (BHA) at the renaming of the Bendigo Aquatic Centre to the Faith Leech Aquatic Centre.  Faith Leech won an Olympic gold medal with Dawn Fraser in the 4 x 100m relay at the Melbourne 1956 Olympics.

Zara was chosen as she is the newly elected, and youngest ever, vice captain of the BHA.  Zara is the only swimmer to have won the prestigious Faith Leech Award twice and is pictured here with Faith Leech’s son, Adam Tuohy.
