Pioneer Dolphins Travel for First Long-Course Carnival of the Season

The Pioneer Swimming Club travelled to Townsville this month to compete in the Townsville Tourist Centenary Transition Meet, held from September 2-3.

Nine Dolphins attended the event, having the chance to experience the start of Spring and the glorious warmer weather in Townsville.

The personal bests achieved by the Pioneer Swimming Club at this meet were massive – not just a second or two, but fantastic results of 13 seconds or more in some events.

One of the club’s youngest swimmers, Mia Clarke, collected 1 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze over the weekend; and Isaiah Espartinez collected 1 silver and 3 bronze.

The Club was extremely proud of all our swimmers who attended this meet.

The Pioneer Swimming Club would like to thank Townsville Tourist Amateur Swimming Club for a fantastic event enjoyed by all.
