6 Tweed Valley kids did themselves proud against top QLD state competition. Coach Brendan Murray was impressed with all of his athletes Growth and courage shown by all. it was good to see the high level of competition and see how far the kids have come and where we need to improve.
Lochie had the highest place result with a 2nd place of 45 competitors – 500 run 100 swim 500 run.
He was bit flat out of the gates coming into the water in 7th place … But exited the swim in 3rd looking hungry but there was a decent gap to 2nd and 1st … He ran his heart out into second place and gave the leader a real scare who dug deep to hold on.
2nd / 45
