Bishop's Stortford Swimming Club members made an impact at a bumper Swim England National Winter Championships in Sheffield.
It was the largest Winter Championships in recent history with more than 1,600 athletes taking to the water at Ponds Forge.
Alex Catton, Callum Davis, Kirsty Neill, Millie Fields, Niamh James, Sami Zemzami were all in action, as were overseas members Toby Godsell and William Godsell, with the Stortford contingent qualifying for a total of 28 events.
With just two age categories – open and 16 years and under – the competition was fierce, but the Stortford squad secured many personal bests on their return to national-level racing.
William Godsell, 16, was ninth in the 16 and under 50m breaststroke final while the club's two youngest competitors, Neill and Toby Godsell, both 14, achieved PBs and multiple top-eight finishes for their age group racing in their first national competition.
