MAS­TERS SWIM­MING

SEVEN Whit­sun­day War­riors took part in the North Mackay Sinkers’ Swim Car­ni­val on Satur­day.

Coach Mark Erick­son won all his events and even com­peted in one ex­tra event, the 200m breast­stroke as there was only one com­peti­tor in the event.

He was dis­ap­pointed that he did not count the laps cor­rectly and thought he had fin­ished at the 150m mark.

Erick­son achieved sec­ond over­all in his age group and won the skins af­ter six heats of 25m freestyle in which he pro­duced the fastest time.

Swimmers of the meet were Ch­eryl West, Di O’Donnell and Kay and Bob Corskie.

Kay Corskie achieved first place in all her events and took out age cham­pion.

Ch­eryl West swam ex­tremely well in all of her events with her best swims in­clud­ing the 200 back­stroke, 25m and 50m freestyle.

She swam the 200m free in 3.33.82, 50m freestyle in 40.28s and 25m but­ter­fly in 20.85s.

Her top swims placed her sec­ond in her age group.

An­drea Mitchell swam re­ally well and was placed within the top three in her age group. Her best swims in­clude 25m freestyle, but­ter­fly and breast­stroke.

Ray­lene Ras­mussen had a very lucky day win­ning three raf­fle prizes and her age group. Her best swim was the 25m freestyle in a time of 15.53s.

The War­riors were dis­ap­pointed that the re­lays were can­celled due to the stormy weather, but all in all thor­oughly en- joyed the af­ter­noon and mix­ing with swimmers from around the re­gion.

A high­light for all the Whit­sun­day swimmers was catch­ing up with Mar­garet Cun­ning­ham who has re­cently moved to live in Mackay.
