Canning Times - - FRONT PAGE -

MEM­BERS of the River­ton Aqua­nauts Swim­ming Club took home six medals from last month’s Swim­ming WA short-course cham­pi­onships at HBF Sta­dium.

The club sent 16 swim­mers who com­peted in 98 events, with many fin­ish­ing in the top 10 in their favourite races.

The swim­mers also recorded new per­sonal best times in 75 per cent of their races.

“The thrill of see­ing the club cheer on its fel­low team­mates to some huge per­sonal best times makes me proud to be in­volved in the club” head coach Gemma Her­ring­ton said.

A free ‘come and try’ club night will be held on Oc­to­ber 13 and reg­is­tra­tions have just open for the 2017/18 sea­son.
