Bluefins' continue swim success

SWIMMING: The swimming season might be winding down but the training and competition intensity is still on track with the Biloela Bluefins burning up the lanes at the Central Queensland Swimming Carnival at Rockhampton last weekend.

There was 18 dedicated swimmers who attended the final major event on the calendar.

The carnival went from Friday evening to mid-Sunday with most of the swimmers competing on Saturday and Sunday.

Bluefins coach Tony Gilligan said the squad swam really well and timed a lot of personal bests.

"They all put in a great effort and set some personal swimming goals,” Gilligan said.

Two standout swimmers were Jade Mauger, who was nine years runner-up and Tyler Seagrott as MC Champion.

Competitors came from Gladstone, Middlemount, Longreach, Moura and Barcaldine.

There was 321 athletes that made 2073 entries and 69 nominations for relays.

Swimmers were striving to achieve times for nationals, states and school events.

There is still one more swim meet for the local swimmers to compete in and that is the club championship on March 23.

"The swimmers will still want to finish the season on a high at the last meet for the season,” Gilligan said.

Mackenna Goodger, Tayla Dickson, Libby Zahnleiter, Danika Knight will now focus their energy on their representative duties for the Capricornia school swimming team when they travel to Brisbane to compete in the Queensland School Sport championships later this month.
