There were plenty of great swims for Po­sei­don mem­bers at a re­cent meet in Mount Pearl.

The club from Carbonear had a team of six on hand for the Body Quest Mount Pearl Mar­lins Ju­nior In­vi­ta­tional and re­turned from the meet with six medals and lots of per­son­albest times.

Lead­ing the way for Po­sei­don was Rylee Moores, who col­lected two medals in the 11-years-an­dolder fe­male cat­e­gory. Moores took five sec­onds off her pre­vi­ous personal best to claim sil­ver in the 100-me­tre in­di­vid­ual med­ley event. Moores also won a bronze medal in 50-me­tre freestyle.

Sarah Burt earned a sil­ver medal in 200-me­tre breast­stroke, Robyn Gale claimed a bronze by shav­ing seven sec­onds off her pre­vi­ous personal best in 100-me­tre in­di­vid­ual med­ley and Mackenzie Sutton won a bronze medal in 100-me­tre back­stroke. All three com­peted in the girls 11-yearsand-older age cat­e­gory.

Burt, Gale, Moores and Sutton shared a medal in the 4x50-me­tre freestyle re­lay, fin­ish­ing less than three sec­onds ahead of the fourth-place team.

Ciara O’Keefe and Julia Verge also rep­re­sented Po­sei­don at the meet, held April 8 and 9, and fin­ished with personal-best times for mul­ti­ple events.
