SWIMMING: Cannonvale Cannons Swimming Club president Tony Parkinson has heralded the North Queensland Short Course preparation meet as a "big success”.

"The two day carnival, held at the Cannonvale Pool, was a big success and it was all due to the local families all pitching in,” he said.

Parkinson also commended all the Cannonvale Cannons who participated, as they represented themselves and the club with pride and were really supportive of each other.

Highlights include:

ELEVEN year olds were the star performers.

Jy Parkinson set four personal bests (PBs) and broke two North Queensland records at the weekend.

His best swims were his 400m freestyle in a fantastic time of under five minutes and his 100m backstroke in an excellent time of 1.11.34.

Both swims were North Queensland records.

Evie Herlihy swam four PBs over the weekend.

Her best swims were her 100m IM and her 400m freestyle in a time of 5.26.34.

Her best swim was her 100m IM in a time of 1.17.29.
