The Mullumbimby Swim Club celebrated its club championships last Friday to cap off another successful year in which members qualified for state titles and the north coast regional development squad.
‘All swimmers have performed well this season winning medals and improving their personal best times,’ club secretary Tracey Morley said.
The squad consistently won medals and improved their personal best times competing at Swimming NSW carnivals held at Murwillumbah, Alstonville, Lismore and Coffs Harbour.
Club members Natasha Fraser, Jinja Jones, Rocco Jones, Finn, Mira, Ella and Pia Brittain all made it to regional school events.
Natasha and Georgina qualified for the NSW Country Championships, while Natasha has qualified for the school state titles in the 400m freestyle, 400m individual medley and the medley relay team.
Ella Brittain qualified for school state titles for the 200m freestyle and 100m breaststroke.
Oliver Pickering qualified for school state championships in the 50m and 100m freestyle and 50m backstroke.
Georgina Morley-Miller was great at the North Coast Summer Championships taking six seconds off her 200m backstroke personal best time, earning the silver medal and missing the gold by 0.01 seconds. She also qualified for the north coast regional development squad.
Sara qualified for school regionals and came fifth in the 50m backstroke and qualified for the junior regional development squad.
Finn Brittian just missed out on school state finals by 0.5 of a second in the backstroke.
‘The club has benefitted from having a national level coach in Craig Davidson and all swimmers and parents would like to thank him for his personalised coaching, which has brought out the best in all swimmers this year,’ Tracey said.
‘Well done swimmers for the excellent achievements throughout the season and good luck at the state titles. New members are welcome next September.
‘Thanks to Mullumbimby community for support in our fundraising activities.’
