Tegan's a junior sports star

GOLD, gold, gold might be famous words from pool deck but readily describe the golden year of Daily News/Warwick Credit Union Junior Sports Star of the Year winner Tegan Warrener.

The Scots PGC College student and Warwick Swimming Club member has previously won the annual award and capped a fine 2009 with selection for an Australian 2009 London Relay Camp at the AIS in Canberra.

Warrener was one of 14 sprinters invited to the camp, and already the number in the group is back to 13 with the retirement of Olympic gold medallist Libby Trickett.

The Warwick swimmer started the year with gold medals in three strokes at the Zoggs Sprints Queensland Championships.

She won three gold medals, one silver and one bronze in individual events at the Queensland School Sport State Championships, breaking two freestyle records and one butterfly mark.

At the national school championships she won four individual gold medals and four relay golds. Three of the relay swims were in record times.

At club level, Warrener won the 50- and 100-metre freestyle double and a medley relay gold in the national age championships which led to her selection in the Australian team for a Trans Tasman Series in Melbourne, Wodonga and Canberra.

A trophy was presented to all 11 monthly winners before the announcement of the overall winners.

Last night’s dinner was attended by a crowd of 130.

Showjumping star Robert Goodwin, a senior sports star of the year, was guest speaker.
