Seven district primary schools competed in the annual swimming carnival on Friday at the Echuca pool.

The level of talent and the sportsmanship shown by the 200 students on the day was fantastic, according to organisers.

Organisers thanked the band of parent helpers from each school, who helped the carnival to run smoothly by attending to their roles as scorers, judges, timekeepers, starters and marshalls.

Final scores: Echuca Primary School (208), 558 points, 1; St Mary’s Primary School, 550 points, 2; Lockington Consolidated School, 463 points, 3; Echuca East Primary School, 454 points, 4; Echuca West Primary School, 438 points, 5; Rochester Primary School, 396 points, 6; Echuca South Primary School, 310 points, 7.

A team of children will be selected from the schools to take part in the zone swimming carnival in Bendigo on March 7.

The children will share a bus to Bendigo, with swimmers from each of the primary schools to represent the Northern Campaspe District.

The zone and regional events are a pathway to the state titles in Melbourne at the end of April.
