THE COMPETITIVE spirit was strong at the Gladstone Gropers swim meet on Saturday.

More than 70 swimmers from across Queensland turned up to compete, according to club publicity officer John Feddersen.

"It went really well from an organisational point of view," he said.

"But also very enjoyable from a swimmer's point of view. The water was good and friendship and the competitive spirit were alive and kicking."

Overall, the Gropers came in first.

The Gladstone team also took home the breaststroke Great Groper Relay.

"It's quite an unusual event designed by ourselves," Feddersen said.

"Hervey Bay always tries to win the trophy off us."
