Lily Cooke, Peter Marshall and Kyara McIntyre competed against swimmers from Muswellbrook, Wee Waa, Tamworth, Armidale Kootingal, Moree, Narrabri, Werris Creek, and Inverell.

Peter Marshall swam in the 15 year boys division in five events with his best results being a bronze in the 50m Butterfly and 100m Breaststroke both with a personal best time.

Marshall said he was happy with the meet and that he recorded personal best times.

“I had a good day with PB’s in most events,” he said.

Lily Cooke had a full weekend competing in both the Speedo Sprints as well as participating in the Area Championships.

Her eight year old female division was a very large and competitive age group with as many as four heats in each event.

In the Speedo sprints she swam in all four strokes and had PB’s in all four events.

She then swam in area champs and competed in another four events and furthered her morning PBs by 10sec in the 50m Backstroke and 50m Breaststroke.

Kyara McIntyre swam in six events in her large and competitive 12year old Girls age group and whilst not getting any podium finishes scored personal bests across her events.

Miss McIntyre shaved seconds from her previous PB’s in Breaststroke, Freestyle, and Backstroke and was happy with her performance at the meet.

“Wow, all that training has paid off, “she said.

“We have all been training hard in the early mornings and have now seen the results of our efforts.”

Glen Innes Redfins are nearing the end of their season and will be holding there Championships on Sunday March 13.
