Mem­bers of the Po­sei­don Swim Club of Car­bon­ear are get­ting faster and faster in the pool.

One needs to only look at re­sults from a pair of re­cent meets the team sent swim­mers to. At the Bluefins Win­ter In­vi­ta­tional in Con­cep­tion Bay South and the Win­ter Tune Up hosted by the St. Johns Leg­ends, just about ev­ery Po­sei­don swim­mer posted mul­ti­ple per­sonal-best times.

At the St. John’s meet Feb. 3 and 4, Jorja Ben­nett qual­i­fied for the up­com­ing cham­pi­onship meet in March, as did Broc Pen­ney, who man­aged to do so at both meets. Ben­nett posted per­sonal-best times in ev­ery event she swam.

At the ju­nior meet in Con­cep­tion Bay South Jan. 27 to 29, Sarah Burt had a strong fin­ish to claim sil­ver in the fe­male 11-years-and-over 200-me­tre breast­stroke event, beat­ing the bronze medal­ist by a mere three­tenths of a sec­ond. Her time in this race also qual­i­fied her for the cham­pi­onship meet next month.

Rylee Moores claimed a bronze in the fe­male 11-yearsand-over 200-me­tre but­ter­fly event, shav­ing three sec­onds off her pre­vi­ous per­sonal best with a time of 3:22.18.

The women’s 4-50-me­tre re­lay team capped things off with a sil­ver medal. Mem­bers of that team were Burt, Moores, Me­gan Smith and Macken­zie Sut­ton.

Po­sei­don had seven ju­nior swim­mers in the pool last month at a meet in Con­cep­tion Bay South. Pic­tured are front (l-r) Robyn Gale and Ju­lia Verge; back (l-r) Rylee Moores, Sarah Burt, Broc Pen­ney, Me­gan Smith and Macken­zie Sut­ton.
