The 13/u girls found tough opposition with a third for Lauren James breaststroke and fourth for Taylor Hudson backstroke. For the boys Oliver Tedstone and Alexander Goff continued their fine form, with clear first places two for Oliver freestyle and breaststroke and the fly for Alexander. Jake Honey kept in contention with a third in backstroke and a new PB.
