The Po­sei­don Swim Club sent a small group to last month’s in­vi­ta­tional meet in Cor­ner Brook, but that didn’t pre­vent the team from re­turn­ing home with medals.

Sarah For­ward led the way for the Car­bon­ear-based club, swim­ming to podium fin­ishes in all six of her races. Com­pet­ing in the 13-14 age group, For­ward fin­ished first in 400-me­tre freestyle and 200-m in­di­vid­ual med­ley, se­cond in 400-m in­di­vid­ual med­ley, and third in 50m freestyle, 100-m breast­stroke and 200-m breast­stroke.

Sarah’s sis­ter Drew For­ward also did well, earn­ing medals in four 15-and-over fe­male events. Drew was first in 200-m back­stroke, se­cond in the 200-m and 800-m freestyle events, and third in 100-m freestyle. She just missed out on medalling in 50-m and 100-m back­stroke, fin­ish­ing fourth in both events.

In the male 13-14 cat­e­gory, Noah Coombs and Ethan Ka­vanagh-Day both achieved top­six re­sults in a few events. Coombs, who earned per­sonal best times in five of his six events, was fourth in 50-m and 200-m back­stroke and 200-m in­di­vid­ual med­ley, and fin­ished sixth in 100-m back­stroke. Ka­vanagh-Day fin­ished fourth in 50-m breast­stroke and fifth in both 100-m and 200-m breast­stroke.

Po­sei­don swim­mers will next com­pete Feb. 12-14 at the Swim­ming New­found­land and Labrador Short Course Cham­pi­onships in Mount Pearl.
