Swimmers post good times
Swimmers from Levin swim club are riding high after carding personal best times at an international competition recently.
The club sent six swimmers to the Wellington Championship event late last year to race against the best from Auckland, New Plymouth, Nelson and even some from Australia.
Although the Levin team were unable to finish among the medals, they gained personal best times and a good haul of ribbons for finishing in the top 10 of their age groups.
Lucus Clark, 10, whacked 11 seconds off his personal best time in the 200m freestyle, and followed that up by bettering his 200m backstroke time by the same margin later in the day.
He competed in nine events, winning six ribbons and ending with seven personal best times (PBTs).
Keanu Jennings, 12, gained qualification times for the NZ division two competition, making him the first junior from the club to make the senior mark at competition. He finished with five PBTs and five ribbons.
Other swimmers to perform within credit were Jed Pettit-Court, 11, who swam in four events, recording two PBTs, Mason Jones, 12, with five PBTs, Lazarus Tunui, 11, with five PBTs and Seth-Cruz Anderson, 12, with one PBT.
