There were first places for the nine years from Felicity Martin freestyle and backstroke, Miles Houghton, freestyle and backstroke and Callum Stannard breaststroke. Lauren James was unfortunate to be disqualified in the breaststroke.

This success continued for the 10/u with Taylor Hudson leading all the way to win her two races breaststroke and fly, and Jack Colby splashed away to win the boys' fly.

Roberta Longley swimming in her first gala had to be content with two seconds freestyle and backstroke. Joshua Clifton was just beaten into second place in the freestyle.

The 11/u girls had Lucy Chapman coming from behind to win both her races, and Ellie Newman won the freestyle. The only winner for the boys was Oscar Martin freestyle, but Josh Colk just missed out with two second places backstroke

and fly.

The 13/u saw two good breaststroke swims with first places from Rebecca Spry, and Adam Brewin.

They were well backed up by two third places from Carla Tawell, and a second in freestyle from George Mann.

Tomorrow sees the first of the Age Group Championships at the Phoenix Pool.
