Junee Swimming Club saw more than 20 swimmers give their all at the weekend's district swimming carnival.
Club president and coach Noel Poynter said it was a massive day with great success across the board.
"We had over 200 kids swimming on the day from 13 different towns around the region," he said.
"Junee had 21 swimmers itself, which was good."
For some, the carnival was their first taste of competitive swimming.
"For four of the swimmers it was there first time going to a carnival," Poynter said.
"One swimmer, Annabelle Storer, broke two district records, one of which hadn't been broken since 1988."
She broke the records for 100m freestyle and 50m butterfly.
Poynter said there was a good representation from each of the districts with a fair distribution of awards handed out.
"There was a sprinkling of competitors that went well from each region and who would've taken away trophies for their clubs," he said.
"We had teams from Yass, Young, Boorowa, West Wyalong, Griffith, Coleambally, Tumut, Temora, Cootamundra, Junee of course and others."
Aside from the individual races, Junee performed well in the relays too.
"We had the 12-year-old boys' and 12-year-old girls' relay teams both place third which was a good effort," Poynter said.
With wild weather hitting the region in recent weeks, Junee copped the change in temperature mid-carnival.
"Towards the end the weather turned a bit rough and it got quite cold and started to rain," Poynter said.
"But otherwise it was a pretty good day all round."
Poynter said the community got on board with the day's proceedings too.
"We had a lot of the parents from around the district and locally who got in and helped out with different things on the day," he said.
From here, there's still plenty to look forward to at the end of the year.
"We have our club Christmas party coming up in a couple of weeks which should be good, and we might even have a visit from Santa Claus," Poynter said.
Attendance for the club is picking up too, according to the president.
"Numbers have gradually come in," he said.
"We had six or seven kids join up over the last few weeks.
"It is a little slow but after talking to the other clubs at the carnival, they all seem to be having the same problems."
It is now back to training as usual for Junee's swimming club members of all ages to round out the year.
