Peel Aquatic Club takes out top honours at 2019 Country Pennants meet

The Peel Aquatic Club made a splash at the 2019 Country Pennants meet in Karratha earlier this month, dashing their way to a stunning A-grade victory as they claimed the title of the state's top country club.

Fielding a team of 18 girls and 11 boys, the club's swimmers were emphatic on their way to taking out the crown, finishing with a whopping 48 gold medals, 17 silver and nine bronze in an impressive showing.

The girls teamed up to claim 32 gold, seven silver and three bronze while the boys blitzed their way to 16 gold, 10 silver and six bronze, good enough to top the A-grade division while Peel also claimed the relay trophy.

Peel led the way with a resounding overally score of 793 points, topping the likes of Bunbury (649.5) and Geraldton (563), who came in second and third respectively.

Fellow local club Mandurah put forth an impressive campaign to finish fourth in the A-division category with 559.5 points.

Jorja Lymn, Oliver Brehaut, Jaden Zambon, Caitlin Leather, Summer Houston, Finlay Larmour, Megan Larmour and Mackenzie Logan all took home top-six awards.

The win gives Peel a clean sweep of the country trophies this season winning the Country Shield for their outstanding performance in the combined State Age and Open Championships, as well as winning the Region Relay Trophy.

Several swimmers have qualified with national times and will head to Adelaide in April for the National Age Championships.
