SWIMMING: Emerald Seals went out west for a recent swim meet.

Last weekend they attended the Barcaldine Outback Oasis Meet.

The team was part of the 130 competitors at the meet from throughout the region.

Emerald Seals committee member Wendy Gaskin said the Seals enjoyed the friendly competition and atmosphere of the meet.

"It's always a fun meet and we get to see lots of team spirit,” she said.
