Hosts scoop pool

WARWICK swimmers Dimity Brackin, Ella Hudson and Caitlin Skaines won age championships as the host club won the McNamara Sprints Carnival at WIRAC yesterday.

Allora swimmers Brendan Hoffman and the Gilmore brothers, Will and James, also won age championships.

In an outstanding effort for a girl from a small country community, Mungindi swimmer Hayley Wright won the eight years age championship. Warwick swimmer Nella Ryan stopped Hayley from securing a clean sweep.

The Warwick Swimming Club won the overall championship from Stanthorpe with Academy third.

President Wayne Schnitzerling said the Warwick club had the most swimmers, 20, in a field of 90 from 13 clubs.

"The day went really well," Schnitzerling said.

The bicentennial 200m freestyle events were the first of the day and won by Academy (Toowoomba) pair, Aiden Lister and Trent Pulford.

Lister won the skins for girls and Patrick Ruane, of Glennie club, the boys' event.
