GMAS team breaks records

Seventeen swimmers from the Georgiana Molloy Anglican School swimming club travelled by train, plane and automobile to Kalgoorlie to compete against 650 swimmers in the annual Country Pennants.

GMAS won C division against Kambalda, Moora, Mt Barker, Wagin and Carnarvon, which means the club will be moved up to B division next year.

The team pulled in a huge medal haul and took home seven gold, three silver and four bronze in the relay events.

The women’s team broke the Country Pennants record for the women’s open 200 metre medley relay.

In the individual events there were 28 gold, 21 silver and 10 bronze medals. 

Brent Blakers broke the meet record in the under 16 50m freestyle and Ben Stone broke the under eight 50m backstroke, a record set in 1987.

The GMAS Swimming Club is open to all people in Busselton and surrounding areas.
