Words by Nick Crockford

Redcliffe Leagues swimmer Rylee Smith will be in seven events - ranging from 100m to 1500m - in the Australian Age Championships at the Gold Coast starting on Friday.

Smith warmed up by racing five events and winning two medals in the Queensland Schools Sports titles at Chandler on March 29-31.

She won a silver medal as runner-up in the 400m individual medley clocking a personal best (pb) by 9.67 seconds.

That was followed by a bronze medal in the 200m individual medley, also in a personal best time, taking 6.7 seconds off her pb.

Smith is being considered for the Queensland team in both events. She was also fourth in the 200m freestyle, sixth at 200m backstroke and ninth in the 100m backstroke.

Redcliffe had four swimmers qualify and experience heats and finals at the 2023 McDonald’s Brisbane Junior Championships.
