Head coach Pete Woodbridge said: “This was a fantastic championship for the club and great to be held in the Inspire Sports Village for the first time.

“The team had some great swims and deservedly won many medals, set new club and county records and achieved regional and national qualifying times.

“We will now strive to continue to improve and gain further qualifying times for the Regional and National Championships later in the year.”
