Grand medal haul

YOUNG athletes from Richmond Valley Swimming Club have brought home 36 medals since the beginning of the year, after successful attendances at the Kyogle and Murwillumbah carnivals.

"This is a great effort from a small club like ours," president June Blunn said.

"These carnivals have been well supported, with 10 or more swimmers attending.

"In these carnivals our swimmers have been achieving some great times and improving their PBs by seconds."

Ms Blunn said swimming club members had also performed well in their school zone carnivals.

Congratulations to swimmers

She passed on congratulations to Zac Armstrong, Elliott Hyder, Max Fisher, Tara Blunn, Jacob Yourell, Caleb Yourell, Chloe Gillett and Kye Mangan for making it to the next level.

While Tara Blunn from St Josephs, Woodburn, competes in the Lismore Diocesan Primary team at the New South Wales Catholic Primary Sports Polding Swimming Carnival in Sydney later this month, Paralympian Jackie Freney, also a swim club member, will be performing in the Olympic trials in Adelaide.

"We will all be cheering for Jackie," Ms Blunn said.

Presentation Night Details

Presentation night for the swim club will be held on March 30 at the Evans Head Aquatic Centre, starting at 6pm.

The inflatable pool obstacle course will be up and dinner will be a barbecue.

Family names and numbers will need to be in by Monday, March 24 to Bec Yourell.
