They took out the latest FNC swimming carnival held at Alstonville at the weekend.

Summerland finished with a swag of medals -21 gold, 21 silver and 13 bronze - from the 23 swimmers who competed.

Madeline Ewing fared the best with six gold and one silver in the Under-10 girls.

Mary Gellatly also had a memorable afternoon winning two gold, four silver and two bronze in the Under-9 girls.

Summerland also finished third at the Mullumbimby carnival last month.
