Trinity blessed with major haul at regional comp

TRINITY swimming ace Samantha McKenna will look to go back-to-back at the NSW state swimming championships this week.

McKenna, 15, won two gold medals in the 100m and 200m breaststroke last month.

The Trinity Lismore club has prepared for the state event in the best possible way with an impressive medal haul at the NSW Country Regional Championships in Inverell earlier this month.

Trinity won the two-day carnival, finishing 3000 points clear of second placed and host club Inverell.

They claimed a total of 150 medals with 71 gold, 46 silver and 38 bronze.

The next closest club on medal count was Coonamble with a combined total of 34 medals.

Trinity also finished by breaking 15 North Coast swimming records.

About 27 swimming clubs attended the championships, travelling from Griffith in the south and Boggabri in the west as Sydney clubs chased times for the NSW State Age Championships

The NSW championships start on Friday and finish the following Saturday.
