Trinity swimmers in top form
MORE than half the 38 swimmers from Trinity Lismore Swimming Club who travelled to Armidale for the NSW Regional Championships have qualified for the NSW Country Championships this month.
Clubs travelled from along the coast, southern regions and western districts to attend the carnival at Armidale.
Under the guidance of head coach Ken Malcolm, Trinity swimmers placed in all events.
They swam more than 150 personal best times, winning 42 gold medals, 20 silver and 36 bronze.
More than 20 of them qualified for the NSW Country Championships, which will be held at the Homebush Aquatic Centre in Sydney on February 27-28.
Earlier last month, 15-year-old Adam McNamara and 17-year-old Sam Cook travelled to Homebush for the NSW State Championships.
Adam swam six personal best times, claimed bronze medals in the 100m and 200m backstroke and made five finals. He also broke the Far North Coast 200m backstroke record with a sensational 2min-12secs swim.
Sam achieved best times in four events including a brilliant 54sec for the 100m freestyle.
