Cannons host successful swim meet

SWIMMING Clubs from across North Queensland converged on the Whitsundays on the weekend as the Cannonvale Cannons hosted some of the best young swimmers from around the region.

A stand-out for the Cannons was Charlotte Mitchell, who won every event she entered in.

There were numerous personal bests (PBs) from several of the Cannonvale Cannons swimmers at the event.

Cannons swimmers Charlotte Mitchell, Georgia Murray, Natalie Milne, George Roth, Mika Stimson, Olivia Romanella and Emma Hogan made the skins finals with Charlotte and Mika winning their finals.

Cannons' coach Mark Erickson was happy with the meet and had several compliments from other coaches on how well things went.

Five North Queensland records and two state short course records were broken over the weekend.

The club congratulated all their swimmers and wished to thank all the parents and community volunteers for their help over the two-day carnival.

Swimmers will return to training before upcoming meets hosted by the Whitsunday Swimming Club on November 4 and later in the year in Townsville and Bowen.
