It was a big three days of racing at the NSW State Championships which were held at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre from March 18-21st. Top swimmers from around the country travelled interstate for a chance to squeeze in as much racing as possible before Nationals next month and the Games Trials in June. In order to offer the swimmers a chance to race in similar conditions to the upcoming Games, the meet had a different format with Heats held at night and Finals run in the morning.

NSW native Meg Bailey was a standout, winning her 400m IM by over 4 seconds with an impressive time of 4:40.9 and winning another gold in her 200m Butterfly event with a time of 2:10.39.

Katja Dedekind had a massive meet, smashing her 50m Freestyle coming away with gold in a time of 27.83. She also won her 400m Freestyle and 100m Backstroke events, proving she's in good form leading up to the Paralympic Trials.

In the 200m Breaststroke event Tessa Wallace touched the wall in a time of 2:27.69 behind Jenna Strauch and Abbey Harkin. In a tight 50m Breaststroke event Tessa came third in a time of 31.42 only .37 behind winner Georgia Bohl. Tessa also won Bronze in the 200m IM behind Kaylee McKeown and Tara Kinder.

West Australian F-Teamer Holly Barratt had an amazing finish in the 50m Backstroke event to claim Silver only 0.01 behind Madi Wilson and touching out Emily Seebohm by only 0.01 as well!

16-year-old Lulu Macleod joined some big names in the 4 x 100m Medley and 4 x 200m Freestyle relays. With Jessica Madden, Lani Pallister and Emma McKeon, Lulu won Gold having swum a great final 200m Freestyle leg. She also helped her team win Silver by swimming the Freestyle leg in the medley relay.
