Trinity team third overall in Swimming championships a Coffs
RECORDS tumbled during the Swimming North Coast long-course championships at Coffs Harbour, with Trinity Lismore finishing third overall from 30 clubs competing at the event.
One of the closest finishes was in the men's 100m free-style with only .02s separating winner Mark Thurgood (Kempsey) from second placegetter Andrew Fisher (Forster).
Entries were up on last year with more clubs involved this time.
Port Macquarie claimed the overall pointscore from Sawtell and Trinity Lismore.
They were followed by Coffs Harbour, Forster, Lismore Workers, Macksville, Wingham, Murwillumbah and Kingscliff.
Swimmers at the championships were eager to meet the criteria for area development squad membership for 2015.
