Swimmers from two of the region's smallest schools produced mighty efforts to medal at the State PSSA Swimming Championships.
The Burren Junction awesome foursome of William Smith, Elke Sendall, Milly Chappel and Sarah Smith won silver in the Peter Dobson Relay, which is for schools of between 25 and 54 students.
They just touched out the Mullaley Public School team of Thomas Makim, Jack Haire, Georgia Rose and Charlotte Craig, who made school history, firstly in qualifying for the final and then taking the bronze.
It was an exceptional performance from the small schools relay teams with all six - Burren Junction, Mullaley and Gravesend in the Peter Dobson, and Bourke Walgett Distance Education, Currabubula and Rowena in the Earl McGee Relay (for schools with less than 25 students), making the final.
Tamworth Public School's Nicholas Wevar produced the individual highlight of the championships, reaching the final of the 13-year boys 50m freestyle.
He finished in eighth, which North West manager Christine Roser-Whitney said was a fantastic effort considering he hasn't been swimming for that long.
She said all the swimmers showed great determination to improve on their personal bests times.
"Some swimmers took off up to 10 seconds which was wonderful to see," she said.
