There were smiles all around with personal bests and medals flowing freely.

New swimmers Alyssa and Emily Goodwin were excited to take part.

"This was my first ever carnival and I was so nervous but it was really exciting, and fun too," Alyssa said.

Head coach Tom Fronek was proud of his new swimmers.

"It is a great little meet … not too busy or intimidating, with a great friendly and supportive atmosphere," Fronek said.

Gladiators will back up this weekend for the annual Caribeae Beef City Long Course meet.
