Congratulations to all of our swimmers who competed in the Sussex County Championships this weekend! We had many great results with 13 finals swum, some regional times and club records; plus long course PBs, medals and rosettes!
Our top performer was Ashton Netherwood who beat his short course PBs and gained a club record in every event he swam! Ashton is currently lying 3rd in the FINA points championship for the 10yr boys age group.
Ella Thornburg is lying 3rd and Ella Napier 5th in the 13yr girls age group.
