Pirates win medals in country championships

The Woy Woy Pirates Swim Club have returned from the NSW Country Championships with several medals.

The championships were held from February 21 to 23 at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre with the Pirates fronting up in several events.

Cassandra Van Breugel was the club's most successful athlete of the championships, taking out the gold in the Women's 17 and Over 100m Breaststroke, 200m Breaststroke and 200m IM; silver in the 50m Freestyle and 50m Breaststroke and bronze in the 100m Butterfly.

Cassandra also picked up bronze in the Women's Open 50m Butterfly.

Joshua Smith was the club's second highest achiever in the Men's 15 and Over Multiclass, picking up bronze in the 100m Backstroke and 200m IM and just missing out on his third bronze after finishing fourth in the 50m Freestyle.

William Slater was the club's only other individual competitor to win a medal, taking bronze in the Men's 13 and Under 400m Freestyle, before he teamed up with clubmates Johnathan Hall, Ronnie Jordan and Kobe Linnert to take out the silver in the Men's 12 and Under 200m Freestyle Relay.

The club also had several competitors finish within the top 10 of their races in both individual and team events which helped the club reach a total point finish of 385.
