NAMBUCCA Valley swimmers have competed at the recent Swimming NSW Country Championships at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre.

Swimming North Coast’s Faye Rowles said swimmers representing the region achieved top results in Sydney.

“97 swimmers from the Swimming North Coast Area travelled to Sydney for this event,” she said.

“They contested 406 events, which was fewer than last year.

“Unfortunately a few clubs in the area did not fare very well following the floods soon after the Championship last year.

“Those that did compete this year did very well with four more medals than last year and 34 more top ten placings.

“Well done to all those who did compete so well.”

Macksville Marlins members Bailey Whitton, Ethan Blockey, and Leah Pickvance all brought home a number of medals from the championships.
