Brothers Strikea winning pose



THE STRIKE brothers Matthew and Dean were the stars of the show in the Chanel College Interhouse Swimming Carnival at the Gladstone Aquatic Centre last Friday.

All-round sporting star Matthew finished the meet as the 15 years boys age champion, while younger brother Dean emerged victorious in the 13 years boys age division.

The pair's performance was indicative of the talent on show at the popular carnival which was won for the second consecutive year by Futuna.

The yellow house finished the competition on a total of 636 points, 37 clear of second placed Marcellin.

Stella Maris finished in third with 432 points, while McAuley had to settle for the dreaded last position on 284 points.

At open level, Josh Kelly and Arnika Tieman utilised their various swimming skills with aplomb, earning age champion titles.

In-form Gladstone Gladiators duo Hannah Curran (13 years) and Antoinette Hayes (14 years) were among the swimmers to shine, continuing their fine run by winning age titles.

Other age champions were Jack Sneath (14 years boys), Clementine Lodder (15 years girls), Chris Lockyer (16 years boys), Jill Lowry (16 years girls).
