A strong contingent of Narrogin swimmers will hit the pool to face some of the best regional clubs in WA when they take part in the 2021 Country Pennants at Mt Barker this weekend. Narrogin Amateur Swimming Club will compete in the annual event, with a team of 24 swimmers from as young as eight up to the age of 46. There are three parent and children combinations in the Narrogin representation, and club coach Tanya Hart said the meet was a great opportunity for them. “Last year we finished third in C-grade and we have a very young club again this year,” Hart said. “We have been training since October and it has been great to go to meets in Wagin and York recently to prepare ourselves for swimming in an outdoor pool. “Everything within our club is volunteer-based and it’s a very exciting weekend to see our little club compete.” Narrogin will have three captains for the meet: Grace Mulcahy, Charleah White, and Luca Collette, and they will again compete in C-grade against Busselton, Boddington, Wagin, Kambalda and Carnarvon. A total of 30 clubs from around WA will be in action at Mt Barker over the two-day event. On February 20, four Narrogin members attended the York Open, where Charleah White won a bronze medal in her 50m butterfly, Joshua White claimed gold in the 50m freestyle and a silver in his 50m backstroke, and Luca Collette received a silver in the 50m breaststroke and bronze in the 50m backstroke. The club’s youngest member, Morgane Collette, had some outstanding personal bests against strong competition. Narrogin also competed at the Great Southern Regional Championships in Wagin on February 6.
