Karratha swimmers held their end of season club championships this month where they participated in team events. The Karratha Amateur Swimming Club championships was hosted at the Leisureplex where swimmers were divided into two teams and raced to get points for their side. The 43 swimmers participated in 50m, 100m and noodle relay races and in the end blue team won with 251 points while red came second with 223 points. Club president Melanie Battilana said the event encouraged team spirit and sportsmanship. “All season our swimmers have time goals they are focused on,” she said. “Down to split seconds. they work hard to achieve their individual goals. “The club champs is a chance to participate as part of a team. “They can cheer, play games and remember why they love swimming and choose it as their sport. It brings the club together as a team.” Battilana said the club’s swimmers had shown plenty of commitment this season. “Our swimmers are highly driven, they train several times a week including during school holidays and travel long distances to compete,” she said. The winter season is set to launch soon and will include a new Pilbara shortcourse competition to support swimmers and enable the club to grow.
