The Sette Colli meet saw Holly Barratt (UWA Alumni) pick up the win in the 50m backstroke (27.57) and second place in the 50m butterfly. (25.91) Barratt unfortunately missed the win in the women’s 100m backstroke, when a poor heat swim saw her relegated to the B Final where she clocked the fastest time of the night 59.89.
In the women's 100m Backstroke - Emily Seebohm was too speedy for Barret where she clocked 58.99 for first place while teammate Holly was 4th in 1.01.11. Seebohm went on to complete the backstroke trifecta, grabbing the gold in both the 50 and 200m events on the final night of racing, blitzing the field in the 200, just beating teammate Holly Barratt (27.97) to the wall in the 50 with a time of 27.80.
