THE Narooma Swim Club travelled to Berridale to compete in the annual Jindabyne Swim Club swim meet on Saturday.
Once again there were many medals and personal bests (PB's) gained by the squad.
President of Narooma Swimming Club Chris Brown said, “The younger swimmers really stood out at this meet with Michala Pendergast and Baillee O'Brien leading the way.”
Berridale had both the freestyle relay and medley relay on their program and Narooma took gold in all three they competed in.
Baillee and Michala swam great freestyle legs to secure the wins.
Baillee swam the last freestyle length of girls 12 and under medley relay.
“The girls had setup Baillee for a great finish which she improved on,” Chris said.
“The relay girls improved their time by over 20 seconds at this meet and are now only two seconds off qualifying for the Country Championships.
There were also great performances from Cecilia Colom-Davis, Sophie Brown, Georgia Pendergast, Banjo King, Tom Brown and Tracy King.
“All the swimmers are improving each time we go to a carnival,” he said.
“Both Sophie Brown and Cecilia Colom-Davis have improved in the longer distance swims and Banjo King is to the point where he has now qualified for the Country Championship.
“Georgia Pendergast has qualified for six events at Country and Tracey King has qualified for the Nationals in April, which everyone is really excited about,” he said.
After a good night’s rest in Berridale the team were fired up and ready to compete on Sunday morning in Cooma at their annual carnival.
The day turned out to be one of surprises with some great performances, lots of medals and two country qualifying times; Banjo King in the boys 100m butterfly and Georgia Pendergast in the girls 100m butterfly.
Again Michala and Baillee powered on collecting many gold medals and PB's.
“Well done guys a great team effort!” Chris Brown said.
