SWIM­MING

A GROUP of 24 swim­mers from Cannonvale Can­nons trav­elled to Townsville last weekend to at­tend the Townsville tourist meet at the To­bruk Me­mo­rial Pool.

De­spite the tough con­di­tions the swim­mers achieved well in all dis­ci­plines.

Han­nah Crit­ten­den got her A grade up­grade for 50 back­stroke and Piper O'Grady showed good form in her breast­stroke.

Ali Romanella, aged eight, swam her first 100 and 200m races at a swim meet and Sarah Milne pow­ered through the wa­ter in the re­lays.

Five-year-old Nathan Lee took a mas­sive 25 sec­onds off his 25m freestyle and was in his first 50m swim in the re­lay.

Can­nons came home with many medals, plac­ings and per­sonal bests.

The swim­mers are now pre­par­ing for the North Queens­land cham­pi­onships to be held at Long Tan Pool in Townsville on the March 1-2.
