Warragul Swimming Club recently made the trek down the highway to Warrnambool for the 2020 championships.

The team of 30 swimmers ranged from first timers to veterans, with coaches Paul Myers and Andrew “Marksy” Marks swimming in the 17 and over relays.

Day one brought strong winds and fresh conditions, but the swimmers had some amazing performances and fantastic results.

The club had 25 individual swims, with Mollie Dennis and Kashya Saunders congratulated for awesome swims at their first long course championships.

In total, eight swimmers progressed to 13 finals – Callum Halloran-Lavelle (three); Ben Francis, Mollie Dennis and Paddy Griffin (two); and Chloe Joiner, Finn Dowty, Cailean Thomas and Thomas Halloran-Lavelle (one).
