GANDER, NL — Athletes from the Poseidon Swim Club of Carbonear had some great results at a recent meet in Gander.

Fielding a team of eight for the Gander Toyota Fall Invitational Nov. 3-5, Poseidon had three swimmers claim top achiever honours. Sarah Burt was the third-place top achiever in the 11-year-old girls age category and Mackenzie Sutton was second overall at the 12-year-old girls level, while Noah Coombs came in second for 14-year-old boys.

Coombs (400-metre freestyle, 5:09.44) and Sutton (100-m backstroke, 1:22.17) also achieved champs times at the swim meet in Gander, as did 13-year-old girls Jorja Bennett (200-m freestyle, 2:38.03) and Rylee Moores (200-m freestyle, 2:35.54).

Burt, Sutton, Moores and Bennett also joined forces to finish first in a medley relay event, clocking in with a final time of 2:33.46.
