Four wins secure nine years title
WARWICK Swimming Club member Caitlyn Skaines won her four races to win the nine years age championship at the recent Texas carnival.
Two other junior girls, Abby Grayson and Samantha McMahon, competed on the day and proved the hard work at squad training is paying off.
Abby swam personal bests, making the podium three times and taking home two bronze and one silver medal in a tough competition.
Sam was competitive in all strokes but had an exceptional butterfly swim with a six-second personal best to just miss a place.
Jonathon Skaines had a great meet by swimming strongly in all strokes in the 12 years boys’ age group and gracing the podium on four occasions.
Caitlyn Spies dominated her age group and came away with the most points accumulated to win the age championship. Many of club swimmers will compete in next week’s Darling Downs Secondary School Championships.
The next club event is the Pittsworth carnival for swimmers 12 years and under on February 27, and the Darling Downs Regional Championships on March 5-6.
Warwick swimmer Brayden Fearby scrapes into the Pittsworth carnival by one day as he turns 13 the following day.
