LILY Eldridge has taken on the best Australian age swimmers at the Georgina Hope Age Nationals in Sydney at the Olympic pool on Monday April 23.

Despite her best efforts Lily just missed out on individual but did qualify for a medley

Lily’s magnificent backstroke leg in a time of 35:46 seconds ensured the qualification for the team. Lily and her team mates went into the race ranked 17th and ended up coming home in ninth place, which means they are now ranked 9th in Australia in the 13-14 year medley relay.

The girls outdid themselves with a 2:71 seconds personal best and Lily smashed her time and swam a 34:38 seconds. Lily now has her sights set on qualifying in her own right
for individual events as well as more relays at next years age nationals which will be in
Adelaide.
