Narrogin Open Carnival Results

A small but select team of Seahorses made the trip to Narrogin to compete in this Open Carnival on Saturday 1 December.  Those who went were Mike Brown, Jeannie Johnson, John Matthews, Ted O’Rourke and Lynne Power.

Some excellent times were swum and Somerset came 4th with 67 points.  Our relay of Mike, Jeannie, John and Lynne won both the freestyle and medley relays in the 200-239 years age group comfortably.

What will be interesting to hear is what happened in Mike Brown’s 50 freestyle.
