Maryborough kids in state titles

MARYBOROUGH swimming coach Adrian Williams has more than a dozen kids going away for the state titles in Brisbane next week and can’t wait to see how the kids he has trained go against the best competition in Queensland.

The kids have been training diligently all year and now they have their chance to show what they can do.

Biggenden’s Sally Wheeler, who almost qualified for the Beijing Paralympics last year, will be one competitor Williams will be keeping an eye on – and, having competed strongly at a national level, he is expecting her to do well next week.

Wheeler will also use the state titles as a chance to see where she is at and how well she is going ahead of the Commonwealth Games trials next March.

Maryborough’s Tim Heffernan is another swimmer Williams is sure will do well.

“There are numerous others that I will be watching as well,” he said.

“The kids always lift to another level for these things.”

Williams said the state titles would be a real test for the kids –“this is one of the toughest meets in the country,” he said.
