A strong squad of 23 Bendigo East swimmers will travel to the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre to compete at the State Age swimming championships.

First events are on Saturday.

The Bendigo East  team has been in excellent form in the lead-up to the State titles.

Ella Wassing, Connor Symons, Jack Nicholas, Alexandra Gibson and Harry Downing will compete at State level for the first time.
