Other age group finalists and medal winners were:
- Lilia 2nd in 50 Free and 3rd in 100 Back
- Oscar 7th in 50 Back
- Zack 6th in 100 Free and 8th in 50 Back
- Matthew 6th in 50 Back
- Ben 5th in 50 Back and 7th in 200 Back
- Adrien 6th in 100 Breast
- Demetri 7th in 50 Fly
...and the boys 4x 50m freestyle relay team of Ben N, Coach Danny, Ben T and Alfie coming 8th in an exciting conclusion to the proceedings.
Fantastic swimming from everyone - and we're very proud of our 9th place overall from a Club with the 3rd fewest swimmers.
Looking forward to the Long Course season now and building towards Regionals.
