Ten USC Spartans swimmers in total have been selected for Australian teams to compete at the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships in Tokyo and the 2018 Pan Pacific Para Championships in Cairns from 9-13 August.

Kaylee McKeown, Jake Packard and Mikkayla Sheridan have booked places in the national squad heading to Japan next month, while Blake Cochrane, Ellie Cole, Katja Dedekind, Daniel Fox, Braedan Jason, Logan Powell, and Jacob Templeton are bound for North Queensland after all swimmers placed well at the Pan Pacific trials in Adelaide this week.

Another Spartan, Nathan Jason, narrowly missed selection but has made the Australian Development Team that will also compete in Cairns.

Spartans coaches Chris Mooney and Nathan Doyle were also selected for the Australian teams, along with USC sports scientist Dr Danielle Formosa, psychologist Associate Professor Geoff Lovell, and soft tissue therapist Lauren Gray.

With swimming powerhouses Australia, Canada, China, Japan and the United States involved, the Pan Pacs are ranked among the toughest international meets.
