Ethan Buckland took silver in the 18 & over 50m breaststroke, and Owen Cattaway claimed a silver in the 200m backstroke.

Head Coach Andrew Sexton says said the results were outstanding and follow a year of hard work put in by the swimmers at training.

'To achieve three national qualifying times and several swimmers swimming with a fraction of qualifying times at this meet, I am excited at what this group might achieve in the next few months," he said.

Busselton's team were part of 523 swimmers from 42 clubs across Perth and WA competing in the championships.

The Busselton Swimming Club will head to Perth this Friday to compete at the WA Country Swimming Championships.
