Georgiana Molloy Anglican School Swimming Club finished second in B division of the 60th Annual Country Pennants Competition in Karratha on Sunday.

After months of preparation and fundraising, 25 swimmers from the GMAS Swimming Club competed with nearly 500 swimmers from 32 WA Country Swimming Clubs.

With plenty of personal best times, GMAS Swimming Club just finished behind a strong Exmouth team and ahead of Moora, Northam, Kalgoorlie and Narrogin.

The GMAS team shared a charter flight from Perth to converge on the North West town where swimmers were impressed with the sparkling 50m pool and facilities at Karratha Leisureplex.

Club president Ruth Miles was delighted to have such a big team.

“Thank you to all our supporters and sponsors, especially Score Group, Cape Accounting and Tony Farris at Stocker Preston,” she said. “Congratulations to all the team for their effort all year round and on the weekend, I know it’s great motivation to keep going.”

GMAS Swimming Club won 18 gold, 25 silver and 17 bronze medals with Abbey Johnson recognised for her top performance in breaststroke and Ethan Miles for his top performances in butterfly.

Kaila Warner won gold in all of her three solo events.
