Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

SWIM­MING: Can­non­vale Can­nons Swim­ming Club pres­i­dent Tony Parkin­son has her­alded the North Queens­land Short Course prepa­ra­tion meet as a “big suc­cess”.

“The two day car­ni­val, held at the Can­non­vale Pool, was a big suc­cess and it was all due to the lo­cal fam­i­lies all pitch­ing in,” he said.

Parkin­son also com­mended all the Can­non­vale Can­nons who par­tic­i­pated, as they rep­re­sented them­selves and the club with pride and were re­ally sup­port­ive of each other.

High­lights in­clude: ELEVEN year olds were the star per­form­ers.

Jy Parkin­son set four per­sonal bests (PBs) and broke two North Queens­land records at the week­end.

His best swims were his 400m freestyle in a fan­tas­tic time of un­der five min­utes and his 100m back­stroke in an ex­cel­lent time of 1.11.34.

Both swims were North Queens­land records.

Evie Her­lihy swam four PBs over the week­end.

Her best swims were her 100m IM and her 400m freestyle in a time of 5.26.34.

Evie has now qual­i­fied for three state short events.

Mikhaila Flint achieved top plac­ings in most of her swims and set PBs in five of her swims.

Her best swim was her 100m IM in a time of 1.17.29.

Hay­den O’Han­lon set three PBs out of his four swims.

His best swim was his 100m back­stroke in a time of 1.38.62.

Te­gan Hanks swam very well and her times were on par with her pre­vi­ous top times.

Jy, Evie, Mikhaila and Te­gan have all qual­i­fied for events at State Short Course.

The nine-year-old swim­mers were also on fire this week­end.

Emma Smith set five se­cond PBs in all her events.

One of her best swims was her 50m freestyle which she swam in 41.43 sec.
