Southern Cross swimmers returned from the 2022 Vorgee Brisbane Senior Metropolitan Championships with medals, personal bests and a host of top placings.

The club’s 11 entrants were in 46 events, winning two silver medals with 22 pbs, nine other top 10 finishes and 14 top 20 places.

Some aged up and had excellent results, including Barry Pope (pictured above) who will be competing at the 2022 Australian Age Swimming Championship in Adelaide from April 11-18.

At the Senior Mets, Pope won silver medals in the 50m and 200m butterfly, was fourth in the 100m butterfly, sixth over 50m freestyle and eighth in the 100m free.
